Will moving to a smaller company from B4 impact my career as such in the long run? Especially a company which is still growing and has only 150 employees at this moment. It’s not widely known in the market. But, it is growing at a fast pace in the last couple of years. From a work culture perspective, this company offers a lot of flexibility, emphasizes on wlb and employee satisfaction. Been wanting to get out of the toxic B4 work environment. I don’t want to make a hasty decision and regret.

Left big 4 for a smaller consulting firm and it has been one of the best decisions that I have made. Make sure that leadership is strong and the team that you’ll be working with doesn’t have the same qualities as the teams that you’re trying to get away from. We’ve had people exit to FAANG and other impressive companies despite coming from a place with a smaller brand than big4
