It has been two years since I landed in one of the "big 4" firms. I was worried about the work life balance but I think I have settled in quite well. We are about to get reviewed so as to determine whether we will be promoted and it has sparked my mind into action, should I stick it out for another 6 or so years and hope I will make manager knowing that the path is not so straight or should I give in to my curiosity and maybe position myself for entry into other non audit firms or even heck it launch my own small tax practice. Comments welcome

2 years ni kidogo sana. Your're just a basher. If you move out now you'll be given a raw deal. My advice you would be to stick around for another 3-4 years then make a decision. Then you need to be active on LinkedIn. Recruiters will be looking for you
I totally agree.

Stick around, work for next 4 years.Consolidate financial muscle and you can launch the business aside before you quit. I suggest you look for Hedge fund roles or trading related or join any tech startup that's raising around but be ready to blow coffee daily
