Hey Jimmy Gatz....you know you have an option to just be “Accountant” or “Associate” or “EY” on this app right?

Appreciate the concern ‘EY 2’, but believe it or not this isn’t the real Jay Gatsby

Similar to Jimmy’s question does anyone have any success stories moving from tax in PA to something else (tax or not)... and If so what type of role is it?

I currently work in international tax at a $15bn company. Steady mix of global tax and transfer pricing issues, structuring projects, annual compliance/quarterly provision and acquisitions. Not public accounting and traditional returns are really only 15-20% of the work.

I have recruiters from mid-level firms reaching out to me pretty regularly for tax manager roles, but I honestly don’t feel like I am ready to be a manager. I don’t want to be in a situation where I am unable to deliver. So my question is what does it take to be a tax manager at a mid-level firm? What experience and temperament do you need? Is it normal to not feel ready? I’ve worked 2.5 yr at a regional firm, made it to senior, now been in industry for almost 2.5 yr as a tax analyst.
