What is the general reception to the Siegfried Group? High comp and an out from B4 but that isn’t worth it to me if it’s at the cost of development and career progression. Any tips for someone who is trying to jump ship from B4 as soon as possible?

For me, Siegfried is a bridge between public and industry. I didn’t want to jump into industry right away - I’m still trying to figure out which industry I want to work in and what I want to do. TSG was a good fit for that reason (and the ~54% raise didn’t hurt 😏). Some of the crap the firm gets on Fishbowl is justified, sure, but I’ve enjoyed my time here.

My hours are way better than public. I have more charge hours in a year, but my weeks are usually in the 48-50 hour range. I’m currently working on an IPO readiness project, but I was on an M&A integration one before this. So it’s very different from audit, but it’s keeping me from stagnating since I’m still constantly learning.

I just got laid off from a strategy consulting boutique in the UK that primarily works with PE funds doing CDD/VDD. It goes without saying that the market is terrible.

I have contacts in Deloitte US but that doesn’t seem to apply for CA.
