Is it lame if I leave right when I get my first promotion from A to SA? (Im talking 1 month into being an SA) Would it look bad to future employers & do I still retain the clout of making SA at big 4?

I left a few weeks after getting SA. No one cares. Plus the decisions are made way before your title actually takes effect.

Exec recruiter here. It doesn’t look too bad and it happens all the time, but it just means that you likely will still only be considered for only A-level opportunities(or a comparable industry title) elsewhere for a bit. They might write into the T&C that they’ll revisit your status in 6-12 months for promo to SA, but you likely won’t be able to start at SA with another firm right away. Unless of course, you’re recruited into the firm by their own talent teams.

Have spent years building my career and moved to Canada 2 yrs back. Have changed my job once already to join big 4 but i am not happy at all, work is very demanding, people seems to be leaving all the time, managing clients and expectations and on top of that working with a couple very rude people….. i have spent a decade in taxes but never felt such burn out and intolerance for rude people… not sure if i am not suitable for job in Canada or just having really bad time for last few months.

I have just completed my first of 12 CIMA exams and I can’t seem to motivate myself to study at the expense of my side hustle when I don’t see myself in Consulting long term. I know I will gain some valuable lessons from CIMA for future ventures but it is a 3 year qualification alongside a demanding job with minimal downtime. Should I try and qualify or focus on saving money and my side hustles? Also, do I need to qualify to work as a consultant in Big 4 or can I opt not to sit exams?
