Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
5th year tax partner at a top 10 firm, northeast region. I’ve been nonequity so far with a shift to equity this coming year. Current book is just under $3m. Am curious about how my compensation stacks up against big 4 and other top 10 firm partners from same region. Feel free to dm me if it makes it better. I have no problem sharing that I’m at just over $300k.
Which Big 4 has the best benefits?
EY and PWC under scanner in UK yet again for auditing issues. Pressure on them to break up. Audit cannot go hand in hand with consulting. Tough times ahead for Big 4. They had too much rope which is now getting cut
I am getting a 50% base hike in one of the other big 4, and my organization (big 4) is planning to offer me the same package at the same level. I am a bit confused now.
Get calls for HR screening from other big 4 within their consulting practice and I do well and answer everything they need to know but never hear back. What could I possibly be doing wrong?

I’ve been on H1B October 2019, expiring in 2022. I’m kind of clueless as to what happens next. Does my firm start the green card process soon because it’s been almost 2 years (ive heard/read you need to work 2 years before they do that at big 4). What does that entail and how long until the green card comes out after that? And when they renew my H1B for another 3 years is that a guarantee extension and not a lottery like the first one?

Visiting my SOs family and they have planned for us to drive to another city and spend a couple of nights there and do activities however no one is communicating how much the extra stuff will cost. Mind you the trip is tomorrow and they have known we are coming for a month. Should I ask how much this is going to cost us or do I just wait until someone asks me for money? I am afraid this might be like $1000 expense for us that is just unplanned.
