Reeeeally depends on the agency—is it part of a holding company?

Yes, agency is about 1000 employees, part of a large holding company of others.

Definitely longer hours. Potentially moved around from project to project.

I wouldn’t go to an agency from where you are . Longer hours , and unless it’s a Merkle or similar potentially low fi analytics work

It's some serious bullshit how underpaid B4 is. This lie about the name on the resume being reason enough to go underpaid. Y'all deserve more money, regardless of name recognition.

Recently promoted to senior in IT audit at a big 4. Should I stay or should I go? The people I liked to work with left. I find SOX boring, I can do it somewhere else with better pay and probably appreciation. I am also ready for a new challenge/opportunity. Should I just stay till manager? Is the grass truly greener on the other side? Would appreciate your advice or experiences.

If you’re Senior 3 and acting manager already, how likely can you find an industry job with manager title (ie Internal Audit Manager)? Some industry jobs for IA Manager ask for like 7-10 years of experience but the job description is honestly just Senior level work. I’ve seen people at my clients in so called Manager roles with 10 years of experience who struggle to do the basics of what a Big 4 Senior does.

I’m a cyber SC and I’m good at my job. But I’m really scared about how little I know about money, taxes, where each penny on my pay statement goes, how banks operate, what drives inflation, etc. it’s not that I don’t save money, but I do so as a best practice, not because I fully understand it. I guess I am a money-illiterate. Just want to know how I can fix this. Any book, courses that will help? It’s overwhelming to note how much I dunno, and how I needn’t know this to do what I do.
