Can you please your hunting strategy? I too want to move into industry but don’t find enough interest from recruiters and I know why, coz I am on a work visa and not many industry firms might want to go through this route but if you could share your approach, will be really helpful.

I make substantially more in industry than I did in PA. Have more interesting work, better WLB. My husband and I have improved our relationship because we actually spend time together and I am not constantly stressed out. No timesheets. No billing. No having to go out and sell work. I dive into the work I enjoy. I use Big 4 to supplement and confirm positions. I have career growth and opportunity. I am never going back to Big4. I have been in my industry role for 4 years so this feeling lasts.

Love that for you, OP!!

Same for me! So much nicer. I'm working more than 40 hours but I have a lot more time to just sit and think about things and really dig into stuff.

Same here!! I recently moved to the industry (tech company) and I work more than 40hrs during quarter ends and 30-35hrs during other weeks. Some of these hours go into learning i.e really thinking about what you are doing and coming with your own solutions that work. The hours are not as flexible as in the Big 4 but it depends on the kind of manager that you work with. And above all, you are paid more and don’t have to wprk during the weekend :)

On the same boat here. I feel like I also hit the jackpot. Hours are better, pay is more, work is interesting. Although I leveled down, but that doesn’t bother me. Give me the pay, and call me whatever title you desire.

How’s the WLB now?

How much is your total comp now if you don’t mind me asking? You may have missed some significant raises here in public based on the current market maybe? How long ago did you negotiate your newer role and when did you leave public?

Correct - it would be more. TC is the baseline or minimum target each year.
