Should I take the Siegfried job? They gave me a competitive package and also helped with relocation. Is this a good move out of audit? Alao interviewing with FDD but just started. Is Siegfried bad?

Seems to be tough to find a lot of genuine information about Siegfried. Comp seems too good to be true but no one seems willing to talk about it, whether positively or negatively.

Comp is over market for sure plus I think there is some OT bonus. I had a guy who used to work for me that was Seigfried before becoming a permanent hire while in industry. He made good money

Don’t do it

We had some Siegfried resources help out this year and it honestly sounded worse than B4. I’d probably give FDD a spin first to see if you like it.

Thanks! I am also more curious about career development and exit opportunities after Siegfried. I dont really mind traveling and long hours at this point, but just want to build up the skills other than audit to get myself ready for a corporate FP&A/Operational Accouting role in the future. Some people made it sounds sounds like Siegfried is just the worst decision for post audit career, I am wondering why. Want to make sure I was not sold by the recruiters.

If you have an interview for FDD I might wait to see how that pans out. Depends on your personal interests & career goals but I’d be extremely interested in FDD.

FDD is great, lots of upward exit opportunities. Interesting and challenging work too. Siegfried is basically outsourced accounting. You’ll be reconciling cash at some Fortune 500. Come is not a lie, you can make a ton of money, but you forfeit career development and whenever you leave Siegfried other firms will laugh at your resume.
