Thoughts on going from a manager in PA with 5.5 years of experience to a senior accountant at a 12.5B insurance company? I’d get about a 20% pay increase, every other Friday off, pension, etc.

Think about what you want in life right now. I know for me, my exit wasn't 100% what I expected but I realized that WLB was way more important to me than anything else.

No.

Why not?

Wouldn’t you have a pay raise soon this summer at your PA firm? If so 20% is like nothing

Not to mention working about 600 hours less than I currently do

No, because the progression for each subsequent level is unpredictable. Like in PA, if you show you're progressing, you'll get the promotion. In industry, you can show the progression and if there's no spot for you it can take a long time to get promoted. But if wlb is one of your top priorities, then all of the above may not matter.

Yes. I came from a large regional firm and went to a senior accountant role. It was worth it. You have to get a year or two of industry experience to get a cush manager job working 40 hours.

Offer B more progressive company, but I 100% felt like I was the back up's backup and they waited for their top picks to reject before my offer. I know for a fact I was Offer A's first choice.

Does her own research and usually misses the points. When I ask why she says she's intimidated by the memos etc and they're "hard". That drove me up a wall. We don't get paid to do easy things. Just because it's hard you give up? WTF.
