Anyone else feel more disconnected from the younger people after mid 40s? I understood their plight, knew the lingo, knew what kind of in-person gatherings would be fun, etc. All of a sudden I feel like I have no idea how to connect. I want them to get off my lawn and I’ve never felt that way before. Just looking for an ear.

I’m currently working for a Big4 firm and I’m considering an offer from BDO for a base increase of $35k-$65k more. The pay is a lot higher so I want to take it, but I’m worried about taking an offer from a firm with less prestige. Does BDO have a good reputation? How’s the culture and WLB at BDO?

I am am Oracle SME. I would say it makes you valuable in PA than just being a generalist. However I would say that it’s become harder to do this since the firm has gotten rid of ERP specific trainings and outsourced most of the work to the RATEC centers
Not true, technical ERP trainings are back this year, I am instructing for sap. And most ERP work it’s not currently outsourced to ratec - some is but not all or even a majority for sap at least
I’m in SAP. Leaps and bounds ahead of other generalist in my office. Will pay off whenever I leave
Specializing would probably give more varied exit opportunities. IT Audit gets tough to get out of unless you go to IT internal audit, not impossible you just need to work on skills outside of your work duties.
I'm not sure how it works at larger firms, but at GT the IT Audit folks who make director level are usually SMEs in something like SAP or Oracle.
If you don’t want to travel or quit, generalist is not a bad way to go. Can cover any clients in your market. Also, diversifying your skill set to cover any system, TTS (SOC reports) and Internal Audit is another way to stay local.
While you don’t want to quit now, it’s never a bad thing to understand employers in your area that you would want to work for if you left, and build your skills in that industry and system(s) they run.
