Received an offer as a senior fund accountant, but I’m not 100% sure fund accounting would be for me. I feel like it may limit exposure and potential future opportunities compared to a typical senior accounting role. It’s a great company so I’m having trouble making a decision.

It is kind of limiting but no matter what you are going to have to narrow down your options eventually. Its not a bad space to be in. Can be monotonous or boring at times but there are a lot of options in the investment company space.

^ this. Almost anything out of public is limiting in one way or another... just as staying in public can be.

Thanks for your responses! I’m just worried I’ll get bored looking exclusively at investment related activities as opposed to seeing variety in a company that’s more consumer based.

Pigeonholed

Fund accounting is pointless. No exit opps, if you want to stay making the same salary for years on end do it.

Not interested in joining the public sector and unfortunately there aren’t too many startups or interesting tech companies in the healthcare/life sciences space in Canada. Any thoughts?

Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
