The longer you stay in Accounting/Audit, the harder it is to move to FP&A.

Need more information. What city? Wildly different COL between NYC, Boston, or smaller east coast cities for example.

Also, who is the employer? Atrium Health? If it’s a hospital, don’t expect to be paid a lot, they are nonprofits which don’t pay much.

Seems a bit low. What city?

Seems low to me. I took an FP&A job after 3 years in audit and made it clear in my interview how my audit experience lined up well with FP&A and while the specifics may vary, the high level skills are the same and my familiarity with how companies work and how they make money and how they measure their performance puts me far above entry-level

Idk what the title is but senior analysts should be in the 70s at least

It seems like a unique opportunity but I don’t want to be selling myself short.

They’re arguing that I don’t have any experience in FP&A, which is true.

Pure $ perspective, not worth it

Still associate level money. Consider your long-term goals (MBA, grow with company, industry long-term, etc) and see if making this step makes sense. It’s a good initial pivot away from accounting if that’s what you’re looking for. Either way you decide it won’t be a decision that you can’t recover from.

I wanted to post this for those who see and those who need to see: I, along with you, feel dejected by my current position. But I went to an absolutely no name school and could not find a job out of college for 5-6 months. Randomly got an interview request from PwC for a position I never applied for through LinkedIn. All this to say, everyones path is different and yours will work out how it should. Everything happens for a reason, assuming you always put your best foot forward. May we succeed.

What’s general turnaround time from final candidate interview to decision / offer? Friend I referred for a SD role has gone through the process (2 Partner interviews, 1 SD interview) with the last interview occurring about two weeks ago. She hasn’t heard anything from HR and HR hasn’t responded to her emails asking on status. Not sure if that’s par for the course or an indication she got dinged.

I’ve been going through a tough phase at work and health wise and I’d taken an Leave of absence and I’ve been working with my therapist to deal with it. Everything was going okay up until my therapist lost her cool and yelled at me and called me names for wanting to extend my leave. She spent half an hour of the session just name calling and yelling at me and I’ve been pretty disturbed since then. Whatever her reasons may be, I do believe that her behavior was completely unprofessional
