Hard to tell based off what you said. Do you want to work for a PE firm on portfolio work?

like

No

Is it due to the lack of a raise or general career projection?

Depends, but probably worth it in the long run.

Short-term employability in case of fall-out at smaller firm Your propensity for the work Your attachment to your current role I will say this, Big4 strategy is not a big deal. Having a foot in the door in PE is. So if you are sure you’ll like your new job, go for it.

Probably but need more data

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
