I can't wait 'til the day I can quit. As audit ain't nothing but bullshit. Audit programs won't be a bore. Time entry won't be a chore. Realization, billable hours will be no more.

I quit. No more audit programs. No time entry. Realization and billable hours no more. I’m still not happy. Accounting sucks.

On the same boat SA1

I left EY for a CPA firm that pays base salary >20% above big 4. We get overtime if we work over 45 hours a week, travel bonuses up to 25% of base salary if we travel, profit sharing since there aren't a million partners to take all of the profits, and you get 3% of the client fees if you're on a client longer than 3 months. Plus, audit is optional. You can work in M&A, CFO advisory, treasury, reporting, etc. I'd never have those experiences staying at EY. Oh, and our trainings are in Vegas, not Secaucus.

What firm is this?

I’m guessing it’s the Siegfried Group

Yeah it is. Email me your resume at ByeBig4@ProtonMail.com You get $200 just to interview. $7,500 signing bonus. And you learn more in 6 months working with clients here than you do in 3 busy seasons rolling forward workpapers

It sounds like a scheme

That's what I thought too until I joined. Shoot me an email and I'll give you all the details you want... my experiences so far, the projects I've worked on, I'll even show you my deposit slips to show you it's all real haha
