To anyone who has left big 4 and joined industry as a staff accountant/senior accountant - how was the month end close process ? Was the grass necessarily greener on the other side in terms of wlb? Would love to hear some different perspectives.

Basically the same thing happens every month end - you’re busy for a week or two then nothing to do until the next month end. Very routine. Wlb is better the more established the company and whether private vs public - if the company is in a growth phase (no established processes, recent acquisitions, ERP implementation) then expect things to be very very messy and similar wlb to public. Also make sure to check the staffing situation … poorly staffed and frequent turnover = run

I have never worked in PA, but for my company our closing process isn't that bad. There are probably 2 nights they may stay late (sometimes like 9pm) but thats really it.

Do I bring in my recruiter or reach out through connections? Is using a recruiter beneficial to me, or am I better off on my own? How does their fee play in to what I could get as a package?
