I have been offered an 18 month senior audit position in Bermuda. Can anyone speak to the experience there/ whether they would advise accepting or declining?

Not Caribbean. Weather is similar to Coastal North Carolina. It can get brisk in January/February. Still gorgeous though ;)

You'd have to learn how to speak Bermudian. In all seriousness, it's the Caribbean - how bad could spending 18 months there be? Would just make certain the experience aligns with your longer term goals (whatever they out be).

I have a friend who hated that exact experience. There are only a few things to do and a few places to go drink and only so many people you can meet. He was dying to leave after 3 months. Don't do it. It's not the tropical party getaway you're imagining it to be.

Op, did you decide to take the offer? 🏝

It'll be a good time. Party atmosphere, diverse expat community, and possibility to move up quicker (their promotion structure differs than in the US). And you'll live on a beautiful island. You might get rock fever, OR you might love it and never leave. Do it.

Arrow Icon

It's a very small island so it can boring quickly. Are you going to be there alone or with a significant other? Makes all the difference.

Arrow Icon

@ey1, even if op goes alone, it'll still be a good time bec plenty of people will be in his/her boat. But if they go with an SO, then watch the $$ pile up. Their income tax is like 5%

Arrow Icon

I would be going alone and do not know anyone there or anyone that would be going with me. I am a fairly outgoing person but my biggest concern would be meeting people on the island

Arrow Icon

That would not be a problem, esp if you're outgoing. Do you think? Are you into sports? Even better

Arrow Icon

Drink not think

Arrow Icon

You go

Arrow Icon

I'll go with you OP!!! Are there additional slot open still? which industry focus???? will revise resume tonight 🤔

Arrow Icon

Being on an island can be boring for that long unless u really want a new environment to relax and such
