Transition from big four tax to a different big four FDD? Do the following make me a decent/strong candidate? I have CPA, MAcc, 1 year experience, and a strong referral within the big four firm I’m applying to. Hopefully a hot market helps...Thanks for the help!

No offense but MAcc is not a differentiator. But what industries did you work in ? Do you want to do advisory FDD or Tax FDD? Leverage that network

I made the switch! Same background as you (but 2 years experience)

You will need to sell that you are truly interested in FDD and why this transition is logical. While also having the excel skills and business understanding to do well on the case study. Definitely possible but you may need to do some extra networking to get your foot in the door

Disagree with the other poster. MAcc is a differentiator.

Depends on what part of the country you’re in. Here in Texas, most B4 incoming associates will have MAccs.

He has only been in that role for 3 weeks so might be an ego thing. I am like did I pass the interview haha. Advice.

Is it standard for companies to let you know where you fall amongst your peers during annual reviews or is that just a big 4 thing?
