Just don't do it again next year. Better than staying and hating the people you're with.

Just read your contract carefully!

Agree with KPMG1, just don't switch often

Nope. I did it and haven't regretted the move at all. You won't last much longer anyways if you stay with a firm you hate.

Potentially moving to a competitor (Big 4). My field is busy right now/high in demand. What numbers should I be looking for/expecting for a first year manager in terms of signing bonus? My current firm is holding a $23k bonus over my head until April. I’m leaning towards it not being worth moving in until after that/post Covid unless they can get close to that on a signing bonus and push my base up at least 25%.

If any seniors or managers are looking for referrals to CohnReznick tax or audit, please DM me. Great firm all in all; positions are fully remote to the extent you want, great PTO and work life balance compared to big 4 from my experience, and the firm will also reimburse your advanced degree 100% (JD, MBA, Masters), which is a very valuable perk. DM me to find out more!

I’m a SC from a big 4, will soon enter my fifth year, I have a background in IT audit and solutions/ERP. Really burnt out by the internal firm work (proposals, etc) and the low pay(homegrown).

For one, I definitely do not want to return to audit. Any suggestions of positions/roles/companies? As well as any certs i can pursue w/in this next yr

For those who were at mid-tier firms and have left PA/are interviewing, did you feel that your exit opportunities were limited due being at a mid-tier? I’m genuinely curious as I’ll be joining a mid-tier and I am coming from a regional firm. Hoping to pay my dues for another 2-3 years to get senior promotion and get my CPA (halfway done) then exit PA. Don’t really want to hop into B4 but everyone always talks about the B4 prestige being a huge resume booster.
