I was offered a staff 2 role in EY FAAS TAAG. Currently 10 months in audit at another big 4. The salary increase is $10k, work aligns more with my interests, and there doesn't seem to be a busy season. Would you make the switch?

TAAG is very narrow and technical. With only 10 months of audit I would just ask how you can get exposure to different topics and widen the base. Would be my only concern. But faas is a good practice and TAAG is a good group so good opportunity

100% I’m in the middle of making the switch as well since my audit team are being assholes about it

TAAG supports audit with various technical memo’s and support so they do get busier during busy season though you have more ability to push back if at capacity so not as bad as audit busy season.

Yes won’t compare to audit and you’ll probably mostly work 40-45 but there will be times you’ll be working 50-60+ but won’t last for more than a few weeks. If they said otherwise, they lied to you.

I would try and negotiate the salary a bit more, but I think it’s a good move to make.

I was $75 as A2 in hcol so think you’re doing good. Also you’ll get your senior promo and bonus so expect another 20% bump in pay then.

Just here to vent a little. I am looking to make a move to a new role sometime this year but haven’t begun actively looking / applying, I’ve just been responding to recruiters who reach out on LinkedIn with roles that look interesting. I am already exhausted 😅 there’s always something with these roles or the company. I can’t imagine getting the energy needed to actively look for the right fit, but also can’t imagine staying at my current job beyond this year. 🥲 anyone else or any advice?

Why do you think the ways we teach math and problem-solving have changed so much since we were in school? It doesn't seem like they got any easier or less complicated necessarily, so I'm curious what the reasoning might be that they are so drastically different.
