In your observation with other people in PA how do you think people handle their money? Are they smart with their money, or do people live beyond their means?

Far better than the average white collar worker, in my experience. Working in accounting means you generally have a good grasp of assets and liabilities, and understand how investing, compounding, and savings work. Financial Conversations with my PA friends are usually about real estate (everyone has some), 401k and stocks. On average, my non PA friends are less likely to care about those things.

Recently accepted an internal transfer offer to switch to FDD from audit in a couple months. After seeing inflation numbers, the PWC 15% deals bump, and generally feeling lowballed (90k HCOL for an S1), I’m feeling really fed up and considering looking to other big 4 (PWC) for FDD to get the comp I feel I deserve. Would this be taboo considering I already accepted an offer?

Serious question here. I’m a second year senior at BDO in a specialty tax service. I have a lot of friends still in public at both big 4 & mid-size(went to a large state school).

So my question is does anyone still want to do audit? And why is everyone running from it more than ever?
