Has anyone here committed to a partner who has significant debt? My partner of over a year has >$300K in debt from med school.

Any insight from current or former associates? What is firm culture like? Is work life balance decent enough to justify a lower salary?

Looking to get out of public accounting and applied for a Staff Accountant position. The company is known for having a great culture and I’m thinking the schedule will be much better. I’m thinking the compensation will be similar in the new position as what I’m making now so I wouldn’t be getting the normal jump in pay people expect when leaving public accounting. If I were to be offered the position, should I take it? Should I expect a better position if I’m looking for an accounting type role?
Has anyone heard of Synopsys? They mostly do hardware and software security consulting. I wanted to understand work culture and general thoughts on the company.
