Absolutely hate it, can’t even imagine staying for longer than a year. Thoughts?

My mentors have always told me to give it at least one year, and I also subscribe to that philosophy

Anything less than a year will get questioned

I’m in the same boat. I’m waiting a year and will probably boomerang

God bless your soul. Can’t imagine going back to public either haha. Accounting definitely isn’t for me

What are you gonna try and do?

Currently trying to figure that out

Hey y’all! I’ve been working in the restaurant industry for almost 20 years now, specifically pastry, and I’m finally at the point where I’m ready to find something else to do, where I’m needed more. Has anyone pivoted out of the kitchen on to other things? How did you navigate that? Is there another sector that you naturally gravitated to because of skills learned in the kitchen? I’m at a career cross roads and feel stuck.

Perks of making audit partner?

funnylike

In my second busy season of PA (2 years ago), auditing a specialty finance company that we all quickly came to realize stunk to high hell. We ended up issuing an adverse opinion over a disagreement with the client to book an approx. 100MM write down adjustment to deferred revenue. We walked away with the thought that we had just scratched the surface of their corruption. Fast forward 2 years and low and behold they’re under a 1.2B dollar investigation by the SEC and their CEO is in prison.

Can't believe I'm saying this but I'm thinking about a boomerang back into public accounting. Spent a year in industry and I miss audit, the variety, the hussle of busy season. Left public after 7 years.

The firm HAS to allow it, but I know it could slightly delay certain promos. Any advice? Especially if I’m considering partner track…?
