Well, people aren't monolithic and have quite varied dreams, so yes, I'm sure for some folks out there, being in B4 tax is living the dream.

I get it you’re a md at a big 4 so you gotta show support. But to phrase my question in nicer terms, what are the alternatives with higher/comparable pay

Becoming a demigod tax advisor like Feargal O'Rourke at PwC Ireland.

Maybe they want to exit to industry too. Every FAANG has a tax team. Maybe they want to become MD/ partner because it pays well (not PE well, but very nice home in the burbs plus a pension) and is less stressful and more stable than some other fields.

A&M fishes do you feel pressure while taking vacations as your comp is tied to billable hours? Also what’s the policy on remote work, can people work from another country (eg. Canada or Europe ) for a few days if they are supporting during US work hours. Big 4 is strict about international work location, so just curious.

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
