Tax professionals who have left B4/PA, how has your work life balance been in private/industry? PA offers decent flexibility, although I don’t appreciate having to be available more often than not.

I was briefly in industry and found I was working just as much, if not more but without job security and proper resources. Probably won’t ever leave PA again after that experience.

Went to industry at a F500. It’s been great, get on at 9 and then never stay online past 5:30. If I am online it’s due to quarter end, but never past 7.

I started full time at an agency mid pandemic so have never once worked in the office. I find myself working 50+ hour weeks even from home. Everyone who says "I can't wait to be back at the office" - are they really serious? To tack on commute time and public transit anxiety, wake up at the crack of dawn. Will working from the office somehow decrease the work load and increase productivity? Genuinely curious who wants to go back and why.

What would you choose, Big 4 or T2 firms like GT or BDO?

I have been in Deloitte since ever and wanted to consider moving to other firms.
Does it necessarily have to be another Big4?

What are the advantages/disadvantages of moving to a Tier 2 firm?

Would be really helpful if someone who has seen both sides could elaborate in terms of difference in culture, pay, work life balance, etc.
