What are good exit opportunities for someone who has 2 years at a big4 and wanting to climb the corporate latter? Should I go for a financial analyst role or a senior accounting role to get to management quicker?

I wouldn’t base this off of getting to a certain level quicker lol. Base it off of what you’re more into and the rest will come. If you’re miserable in one you won’t make it far up the latter.

What I ask when I interview is the ability for mobility in the company - ie going from accounting to financial reporting to operations etc, this allows you to gain insights from all perspectives of the Company, however this sometimes I’ve noticed is heavily reliant on how big the Company, bc with a smaller company there are less roles available so you cant move up as easily unless there’s an odd turnover rate at a company which in a way is a red flag

Currently in the US but interviewing for a UK-based firm and role. The comp level they are throwing around is £250k TC. Is this reasonable for a Director-level role with 12 YOE? My comparator would be wait 18-24mo to become a consulting partner - in the US that starts at $450k/£325k. For the purposes of this question, assume I’m optimizing for initial comp, not long term potential, and not livability, Intl experience, WLB, CoL etc. Thanks!

Moms, both husband and I are nearing the end of our parental leave. We live in a two bedroom in NYC. We are thinking of hiring a nanny. The plan is that I would work from one room and husband would work from another room. We can move the changing table and pack n play in the living room, and the nanny and the baby can hang in the living room. Does this sound like a good plan?
