I’m a senior working in audit for 6 years now. Recently I felt stuck in audit where progression is slow and salary is lower compared to other service lines. I am considering to go to advisory, but not sure which strand of advisory service. Any recommendations? (Thinking of CCaSS). My main consideration is compensation (including bonus) and exit options. I can’t see myself in public practice forever!

6 years still a senior ? Sorry. Didn’t mean to be rude. Just curious.

like

Worked almost 4 years on my country and moved to UK as a Senior - this is normal. 2 years after that - 1st year promotions are frozen due to covid, 2nd year - I didn’t apply for promotion. It’s frustrating for me considering I’m technically good, getting a lot of compliments but still a senior. Probably my fault for not applying. But yea, it’s truly frustrating that it’s been 6 years I’m still a senior. So i thought of exploring other service line. I’ll be good if atleast I’m paid more.

Is there reason why you didn't get promoted to a manager yet?

I have to. Needs to be asst mgr first, then to manager so atleast another 2 years to become a manager!
