I am a director at PwC making good $$. I am so bored and done with audit that I want a change which includes 1) good health benefits and 2) remote work 100% with 9-5 hours. I am more than happy to take big pay cut, ok to make around 100k which is 50% cut. Please suggest some good jobs guys. Can be audit or not, doesn’t matter.

Why not just stop working as hard? That’s what I’ve done and I’m still rated well (as a senior manager) but enjoy a much happier life. I do what I need to make my staff happy, appease my partners, and get quality work done, but I no longer do extra. I don’t do digital stuff, extra curriculars (like helping with market team meetings or trainings), etc. It’s really made me enjoy my time here more and realize that I like the firm, and I want to move into an IFS role eventually so that I can stay at the firm but not worry about audit.

I would recommend OFRO. I was at your level and basically led a practice in Assurance. I was able to fully transition off client service in about 1.5 months. Unlimited WFH, no pay cut, 9-5, and a stable gig. Great to not have to deal with clients and travel (pre/post COVID). I would keep looking for open roles.

Sorry irrelevant. I just always thought you guys make 400-500k. wow I was off hahaha

I concur. 200 where you’d start in most deal or specialty tax verticals in hcol. But anyway, OP, that’s great that you’re willing to make some sacrifices for things that are important to you. You’ve given quite the wiggleroom to make something happen. Probably will be very easy to make that and cash out to an industry position, even if it weren’t purely accounting related. You’ve proven to take on a big boy/girl job for this long all the way up to director... so you’ll have no issues in any kind of interview proving work ethic and ability to juggle tasks. Literally you can apply anywhere, and your concession in pay makes the over qualified point moot.

Be audit you can be

That’s the problem at our level my friend. The open industry roles recruiters keep pushing in our faces are serious jobs with serious responsibilities.

Any specific improvement in health benefits? I may be naive, but I assumed B4 would have great benefits due to the company size.

Agreed. I’m at a smaller, but national firm and my out-of-pocket cost for vision, dental (including ortho), and $2k deductible PPO health insurance is <$1k/year.

Unpopular opinion: I don’t think Simone Biles should step down from competing because she took the spot on the team from other qualified individuals who would kill to compete. There - I said it. Before you come for me, I respect her mental health and understand why she is not competing, but at the end of the day she took a spot from someone who had been training and would kill to represent the US at the Olympics. I get the pressure is on, but step down before to let someone else take your place
