Jumping to another firm will be a lot easier in most case

I would highly recommend jumping firms if you get the chance. Not only will your pay very likely be higher, but you will make a clean break with audit. For example, of the people I have known at PwC who transferred from audit to advisory, all of them had to still do one additional busy season before the transition took place. On top of that even though they did that busy season and were fully transferred, a few still keep getting pulled back into their old audit clients for busy season even though they have been “officially” transferred for a few years since their audit old teams aways have staffing shortages.

Yeah it is always a tough decision, but if it is a jump from one big 4 to another big four, exit opportunities should be the same.

I made the jump internal for a while then switched over to RSM. I like the travel (5-10 times a yea) and lower hours for similar comp

I did the switch internally. Had an offer from another big 4 for the same advisory group for (slightly) less than my internal offer.

My salary changed once I transferred to the new team. You should ask HR / an recruiter for your firm though. I would pursue both internal and external opportunities simultaneously. Whatever works out first could be good leverage, and most likely will be comparable.

I made the jump internally and got a pretty good raise. Never looked externally to have anything to compare it to though

Input on ghSmart? Was reached out to by their team and have read about it — love the focus area of their firm and conceptually the way the talk about balance, but a bit skeptical and would love to get insight from anyone who works/worked there to understand it better. Specifically, how does the staffing actually work and what’s the reality of work/life balance. Knowing there isn’t junior staff / analysts, how much analytics are you doing and via what tools? How does comp above base work?

Just got an offer from the industry (non-tech) - they were able to match my existing base pay ~230k.

Hi 🐠 I am 34 and single. Thinking to plan a baby using a sperm donor before I run out of time. How can I have a baby and support her/him with a traveling? Anyone in similar situation? Tips?

So tired of interns who speak like partners and act like they are on top of the world. On our status call today, our intern literally asked our staff “why did it take you a day to finish this cuz I can do it within an hour” (which turned out to be a false statement), and when our senior said she’s gonna create a task for EP sign-offs, our intern asked if she could do the same for him so that it’s easier for him to navigate through the work papers. OMG

I became a mom and four months down, head of new business (guy) in my company and the HR (lady) interviewed me for an exec leadership role. Obviously I was excited for the interview but…. the interview went well with the guy and I felt the role was made for me. However, the lady kept bringing back the topic that ‘I am a mom and need to focus on my family’ again and again and again. Honestly it was unnerving. The feedback I received from HR (lady) was we felt you won’t be able <cont. in comments>
