I am Senior, Audit in NYC financial services. I have CPA. Just got an offer for IA. It sounds interesting, but I am scared to accept. I don’t want to ruin my career, stop learning, forget accounting and have a boring job. Could you please share your experience moving into IA?

What are your hours like?

Why do you want to move? If you're exhausted from detailed controls testing and working 100+ hours, dm me. We don't really do either in financial services here. I'd recommend hopping to my firm for a pay bump and more regular hours (we have a few seniors here in financial services who did so- we try to hover around 55 hrs/ week for busy season), and trying to make manager if you like it enough to stick around for a bit. Please feel free to dm me for more info/ obligatory referral offer; there are some very good people in the financial services NYC team, and I know they're still recruiting to get ahead on proposals they're winning.
