Switched to EY. I feel like I fit in a lot better with my current team. Switched service lines and even though it was challenging at first, I like the work I’m doing a lot more now. Besides a few close managers and friends, everyone told me I was making a huge mistake coming to EY. Less than a year later I got the highest performance tier and am being promoted. Best decision I’ve made in my professional career.

I agree! I just dont think I sit well, I feel as if one of the director doesnt like me because I am shy( team is one of the biggest hard to get comfy with people when its so large) and same with senior manager. Hate my hours but if I liked my team I know I would push thru

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
