Title says all…it hasn’t fully hit me but I gave notice this week. The firm I work for was understaffed and we lost critical people before the tax season started. While it gave me the opportunity to start reviewing returns, assigning work to lower-level staff, train, etc, the hours were awful, the work was not distributed well, and it just made me realize that I can’t do this anymore. How in the hell people want to make a career out of this beats me. If you want a family or relationship, I don’t see how that is fully attainable once your fully into public (as in when you’re still it in your 30s).
I just had enough of the time budgets, crap client PBCs, the whole works. I know it’s rare but I’ll be making a switch from 100% tax to private accounting with G/L work.
Still have two parts of the CPA exam left, but I’m so worn out with the tax season just ending.
For those of you who made the switch from tax to private, what did you think? Am I making a risky move?AUD - 76
