Thinking of leaving PwC and applying at another big 4 for the group I actually want to be in (individual tax return) I am a first year. Any advice?

Before you leave for another Big 4, you may want to actually research if the other Big 4 firms actually have a large individual tax returns client base. My understanding is that most of the tax work you will be doing will be related to corporate taxes. I would also talk to your coach 1st and explore opprotunities within the firm 1st. As a 1st year, your experience might be limited in making a decision right now that you only want to do individual taxes.

You should probably try and get a year or two under your belt or you may delay your progression at the new firm. But do what feels right
