Im hesitating between exiting to land on a IA role because hours are chill and comfortable salary versus fund accountant type role. What are the pros and cons ? I’m really looking for WLB but also a minimum of career advancement even if it’s slow. I’m currently in PA.

I'm in the same boat as you and I just can't get excited about internal audit. I feel like it narrows the exit opportunities for making lots of money.

Why not try a financial reporting or senior GL accountant role

Yes I’m looking into it. Mainly financial reporting role for a fund. But I’m afraid it will just be a lot of work as well since it’s on the other side of audit. I’ve also looked into FP&A or other hybrid roles (portfolio analyst etc) out of curiosity.

I wouldn't do IA. I am incredibly happy I got OUT of that job lol. Good pay/hours but you're only marketable for IA/compliance roles, which are incredibly dull... It's a good job if you don't care about career progression and just need a paycheck.

Yeah got it haha thanks

There’s still career advancement for IA it’s just different? Accounting would lead to controller while IA would progress to director of IA but of course there are fewer quality IA positions available given that you would have to join a large public it extremely large private company to fund a strong IA team

I’m in IA now but also spent 1.5 years in fund accounting. Both offer career progression, but very different types of careers. I found fund accounting to be very repetitive and hours were on average the same as in public except they were consist year round as opposed to having a peak busy season and a chiller summer.

smart

This is really helpful thanks. If I can find 9-5 that would be perfect. It definitely makes sense that you have to work longer hours during quarter ends and financial reporting.
