Master's degree is so standard in public accounting and adds no value. I have a master's degree as well

Masters in accounting??? Pretty weak sauce. The masters I know majored in crappy studies and needed the masters to get accounting units.

Incorrect. I learned a lot in my masters courses beyond traditional CPA exam knowledge, such as market theory, different accounting systems (had classes with licenses to SAP, SQL, etc), and many other things. There was more of a research and analysis element that wasn't usually there in undergrad level. Will it get you higher pay in your first big job? Nope, but it will give you more options - you could be an instructor if you decide that Corp life is not for you. Always grated me how people put down the masters because they simply don't see the value. If you hate accounting though, then get your hours somewhere else (double major maybe)

Thoughts on Chief of Staff Roles within industry? Recruiting with a multi-national sales training and performance company as the CoS to their CEO. They want to build out a new professional service arm amongst other strategic growth initiatives and they need someone to help push the agenda.

Comp sounds like it will be +\- $165, 25% bonus and some variable comp tied to the performance of the sales team (don't know numbers here but certainly interesting). Is that in play for this type role? I am currently M1, S&O, MBA from top 5, high performer. Represents a small bump for me on my current base pay and bonus
