I got an offer for a tax analyst position at a tech company but don’t know if I should stay at B4 until I get the senior promo. Should I accept for more pay and less hours or stay until I get promoted?

You should not leave. You want to show that you were promoted within the organization. Folks that only get promoted by starting new jobs are not as desirable as those that show they have what it takes to be promoted. Also, career progression is much faster in public accounting than private if that’s important to you.

You should wait for the senior promo if you want senior exit ops. Otherwise take the analyst job for 2 years and leave for a bump if no promo.

Depends on your goals. It’s pretty rare for a person who starts at the analyst level to work up to the manager/director/VP level (and especially the latter two).

Really depends on the tech company. If it’s a unicorn or you have a chance at making $$$ early. Like others have said, leaving as an associate will leave you very underprepared for higher value work (unless you’re going super big).

When did it hit you that working in the Big 4 is a dirty political game? That everyone smiles in your face but they would all put a knife in your back at any given moment if expedient for them?

Went out on a date and was called a loser. I told her I appreciated everything in my life & now I’m a manager in big 4 and I’m happy with my life. She told me “you are only a manager in big 4 and how can you be happy? you should be working in the weekend to get to a better firm or at least be a senior manager at this age (33 yo). I’m really mad now.

Senior 3 /Manager 1- big 4(Tech consulting/ Cyber) in Toronto: any thoughts on the average compensation?

I thought that too of some of the middle eastern and Caribbean island managers I worked with on a job once, but they turned out to be the most supportive and inquisitive. But I feel ya, sometimes you can sense if they'll be hostile toward you. But I don't give af at this point. In the end, they're still professionals working for Big 4 and probably won't dare say anything to you about it, even if it does bother them. Way I see it, ignorant people like that don't go very far working in our industry.
