Sorry, but someone with 1.5 years experience does not have a 'deep' understanding.

Regulatory compliance and accounting is not piano, and having more exposure to more things does make you better. In your scenario, it's like trying to learn piano with half the keys, or all the keys.

Lol good answer. Proves my point that you don't know what you're talking about. You seemingly know nothing of what actually happens at b4, or even how our firms are structured vs yours. Glad you've got your strong opinion and have bought into whatever bullshit your firm is echoing around for how they are better.

Consulting. You could switch within your firm, I enjoy it a lot in mine.

You could be extremely helpful in any role in the industry you specialized in, also!

OP: in industry, what kind of positions?

Obviously financial roles, but management roles as well. You have a deep understanding of money and accounting, that's invaluable to a company. Having someone who isn't strictly in an accounting/financial role but thinks in that way is super helpful. Helps with compliance and saving money

And your knowledge of their industry makes you qualified to have roles outside finance roles, with a bit of training.

You might consider going back to school for a masters? My exit plan is PhD and teaching, if I don't go into my area of specialization.

Idk, Crowe got me extremely specialized in a very short amount of time where I wanted to be. Could just be you guys I guess. Our firm is smaller so the staff does everything from engagement planning to final report writing.

I also worked at a smaller firm and was much more advanced than the BDO staff....regardless, you are a staff for a reason.

Sure, but staff at a smaller firm are a different level than staff at big4. It's why we get paid more, we do a lot more stuff because we have to.

You still do not have a 'deep' understanding of accounting. You might be more advance than other staff say at Big 4, but it is limited. You aren't going from a year and half experience to controller or CFO.

I didn't say the OP would be those things, but their experience is still valuable enough that they dont need to take a peon role. and I specialized in regulatory compliance anyways. Better pay, better exit opportunities, 45 hours weeks year round.

More advanced than b4? How exactly does "having to do everything" give you a deep knowledge of anything? In a year or two, no less. The argument is ridiculous. It's like you play piano for a year and proclaim that you have mastered music.

What level are you btw?

Have you worked at multiple firms? Because you sound like a staff 1 or 2, or maybe new senior who is overly confident with your opinion but doesn't have the work experience to back it up.

Plus internal transfers after a year also an option?
