Why not?

need more context. Are you switching service lines? Do you wanna stay in public long term?

Not switching service lines and yes, possibly

People act like 15% is nothing. If you are making 100k and you're being offered 115k...that's a significant quality of life improvement. I would most likely take it. You can also use it to negotiate better pay at your current job. Only considerations: 1) will you be promoted on the same timeline 2) do you already have great relationships that you'll lose Sounds like you're underappreciated so you might benefit from the fresh start and the market rate wages.

If you feel like your group/field is stable enough for the foreseeable future, sure. When we went through layoffs, it was only experience hires that were cut. Also, I know experience hires have difficulty getting ingrained/ find work in my group initially. Can’t imagine how wfh would increase that factor.

I am in international tax. My group is always top 3 in size in Deloitte US. We always had work precovid, and I still noticed experience hires had a hard time getting started.

What level are you op? If you are manager or above, I would not change for a 15% increase.

like

It will probably also be harder to be promoted as you’ll have to start building your network from scratch. I’d suggest waiting until your promotion before making a change.

I switched public accounting firms based off of money and I hate my decision after a few years. Public accounting is only bearable if you have a good team. I’ve worked with horrible managers / partners. So if you feel like your overworked and don’t really like ur team etc then go for it otherwise just wait it out. You could always jump ship after ur promotion

I’ve been on H1B October 2019, expiring in 2022. I’m kind of clueless as to what happens next. Does my firm start the green card process soon because it’s been almost 2 years (ive heard/read you need to work 2 years before they do that at big 4). What does that entail and how long until the green card comes out after that? And when they renew my H1B for another 3 years is that a guarantee extension and not a lottery like the first one?
