I’m a Colombian working in the US for nearly two years. I led accounting with a $50k salary, mostly from home. Sadly, the company struggles financially, leading to daily cash flow stress. They dismissed the controller and CFO, offering me AR and AP manager roles at $70k. They paid $220k to less qualified individuals. I’ve got two offers: $70k at a cannabis company and $71k at Hard Rock. Unsure what to choose 🤷🏻‍♀️. I hold a degree from Colombia and a US bachelor’s in accounting. What’s your advice?

I would take Hard Rock. Better brand for your resume.

Agree, Hard Rock is the better play assuming it's an accounting role too. I've been on sinking ships too, jump while you can. Cannabis sounds interesting, but it could hurt your prospects in the future

The cannabis industry could open as many doors as it closes... Especially if federal legalization happens. Not to mention if you get real good at it, many accountants are not willing to touch it so the supply of accountants in that industry is much less than the demand

I agree that the cannabis option might not look so great in your resume. That being said, fortune does tend to favor the bold so perhaps there's merit to not going with the safe options. In either case, sounds like you'll be better off no matter where you go.

If you have a passion for the cannabis industry don’t let comments shy you away. Not sure what market your in but Los Angeles has plenty of accounting firms servicing the cannabis industry. Not just LA, lots of major cities. At a more conservative firm yes it may hinder you. Choice is yours buddy!!!😏🧐😂🤣

I was hoping that I would make up for that comp difference in a year or two but upward mobility seems limited. Is it too soon to look for another job?
