Tax Bowl

Need some perspectives. I work for a Big4, emerging is good with team and partners and clients but I can’t be promoted to Manager as no CPA, have been in this situation for quite sometime now....

Focus on your CPA. If you want to stay in the accounting world is the most important thing to get out of the way. Do you just need to pass the test or do you need school credits too?

For sure, I want to. I passed one part and four more to go but I have spent quite a long time in PA and still a senior so feel like kind of falling behind in my career and feel like EY leadership pretends to help in front of you but in practicality don’t want to help.

Did you confirm rsm/bro do not have similar promotion requirements? Usually the requirement is linked to the level you start signing returns at.

Yes, I have seen RSM promotes people with EA. I have also seen BDO has manager without EA too but that wouldn’t go long but I think the industry these days has been pretty flexible.

I could very well see I kind of stuck in my career, I want to make to move to now but considering not big4 but from top 10. I eventually want to get CPA and working on it but think it’s been long and my career is now kind of stagnant, plus taking a hit on pay. Have been getting offers from RSM/BDO etc. would it be wiser to move to these firms from big 4? On top of that I am on an H1b Visa, please advise.

Mind blowing question. If the big 4 were to be domestic US airlines, which one would they be and why. I say Deloitte is United, pwc is delta, ey is American, and kpmg is southwest. What y’all think ?

What do you all think of walking out for a day like the NBA/WNBA/MLB and WTA players? Maybe it won’t do anything but I feel crazy working as much as I do, and yet we are still in the same place we were at the start of the summer protests. I know the Big 4 can do more...

I don’t know what to go into. I’m a May 2019 graduate and I work as a bookkeeper and payroll manager for 2+ years. I want to go into big 4 or maybe rsm/gt. But don’t know what field. Tax isn’t my favorite and I don’t want to travel for audit. Any input on what I should do? And should i apply as an intern?

When is it ok to change roles because of a difficult leader/manager? I understand we all encounter difficult leaders at some point in our career, but positive self-talk and resilience can only take me so far. I was offered an opportunity to progress my career under his wing but from the moment I started, his leadership style has been damaging to my emotional and mental (and physical) health. Do I shape up? Or is it ok to ship out? I feel like I’m letting myself be defeated if I go.

Question about credit scores. I see my score has dropped 50 points from june for no reason. Haven't taken a new line of credit for anything. Haven't paid off a major loan balance. Also haven't missed payment on my CC. Any idea or is this just a normal fluctuation?
