A few of you have mentioned that people stomach boring work until they qualify so that there will be good exit opportunities then. I suppose even if there are such exit opportunities, won't they again be accounting-related? In other words, if people hate accounting/tax in the first few years, what are the chances that they will stop hating them even if they leave big 4 and work in private companies doing the same thing again?? Thx
Thanks for your answers. I'll be on a 4-year secondment to the Deloitte London office (Corporate Tax)starting from 2009. The training contract for ACA is 4 years. I suppose I won't afford to give up tax for my whole life after all these years of tolerance lol. Is it common for people to take general managerial positions with their ACA?
