I found out this week that I’m getting promoted to tax manager this fall. I had applied for a senior FP&A role at an insurance industry and now they asked me to the final round of interviews. Really my only reason for leaving is pay and wanting more consistent hours, but I worry industry will leave me wanting more money. What are your thoughts on this situation? Currently at a mid-tier firm.

The higher your salary the harder it is to find a new job.

Thanks for the response! The funny thing here is I don’t necessarily like being in the weeds. I want to be managing people, recruiting, training, doing business development, etc. Seems kind of like this may be a good fit for me.

If the effective date of the promotion is in the next couple months, then stick around. You can leave shortly after, but the promotion to manager will be a safety net for your resume if you end up hating the next job. Otherwise, you’ll be required to keep Sr. Acct on the resume. Also, consider the pay raise at the current firm and that (i assume) you’ll now be bonus eligible.

Partners or whomever can help me understand about billing and hours. To keep things simple, let’s say you only have one staff to work 1,700 billable hours a year on a $60k salary and you have only one job that and the rate charged to the client is $300/hour and an projected hours budget of 1,700 hours. So ideally you would have revenue of $510k. If the staff takes less time partners make less money and if they take more time partners make more money while the staff keeps the same salary?
