I am contemplating a move to industry (PE firm) and currently in PA. It’s a tax director role.

For those of you who have made the change. Would you say your satisfied or bored?

My fear is that my technical skills won’t grow as fast as in PA since the consulting work would be outsourced and I would mostly be a liaison for the advisors. Tax technical is very important to me.

Also wanted to see if there are any questions you would ask at the interview using hindsight?
