I’m currently at a mid tier firm as an experienced senior, just under five years in PA. Joined as a lateral hire about a year ago and compensated above market. I want to focus on tech industry but scheduled on all type of industries from nonprofit, healthcare, manufacturing, food and beverage and etc. it’s very hard to get out of the engagements I’m currently on and switched to tech exclusively. Should I consider moving to Big4 for better opportunities?

Armanino is mid tier?

funnylike

It’s Mid tier to me because it’s #5-#100, I worked at a regional firm and our firm bid on the same jobs RSM and BDO bid on I guess what they are trying to say it’s Big 4 and everyone else 🤷‍♂️

Based on the details you provided, yes. But you'd have to find an office that actually has tech clients

That’s my thinking as well. I want to make sure if I’m putting the time and effort to make myself more capable - there is sufficient reward in term of exit opportunities, exposure to complex stuffs and etc

Same situation. As far as I know, Deloitte in Bay Area do not group people into different industries. You can consider the other three big four

Definitely - Thanks !

Outside of probably the top 10, that is the norm- you’ll be working on all industries wherever they need staff. Probably more so now with the staff fleeing in numbers.

Isn’t that bad for since working in different industry groups could decrease your exit value? Plus mid tier firms, we usually don’t see a lot of complex issues compared to larger clients.
