I'm M20, currently working in Audit (UK) towards ACA. I decided against Uni and would like to work in TA/DA, Consulting or a similar field and wanting to know the hurdles that will be infront of me.

I'd be open to moving, this isn't anything immediate as I've only been here 18 months but something I'd like to work towards.


I feel like I have no actual friends in my home office. I only go out after work with the team that I'm on. I'm in no groupchats or anything. Will this hurt me in the long run?

Rate this offer:

YOE: 2
Location: Arizona
Company: Amazon

TC: 105k (85k base + 12k signing + 8k/yr stock)

11k signing for 2nd year

Was 73k but negotiated to 85k base salary. They let me know this was the max for this band in Arizona (I assume this is probably not true).

Idk how, but I got the offer. Still wondering if it’s real (it’s been 30mins since the phone call) because I thought I performed so poorly. I wouldn’t have passed myself. I hope the interviewers didn’t make a mistake (accidentally mixed up evals for another candidate, or the call was meant for another candidate w/ the same name). I do want to thank the Fishbowl community though. So many of you took the time to share your experiences and encourage me. I couldn’t have done this without you.
