misstomorris :  how long do you have to stay in order to not return the tuition money? Depending on the amount of time/money you’d owe I’d probably try to stick it out but otherwise there are plenty of other places you could work. Every business needs an accountant! And there are plenty of female CFOs out there that are well respected and kicking ass in their field. I know because I was raised by one of them 😉

In my experience companies that try to push you to stay out of some guilty or sense of loyalty are actually shitty employers. Guilt is the only thing they have to keep people to stay!

misstomorris :  when you’re CFO if you have employees on your staff that are disrespectful it isn’t really a big deal because you can fire them. Don’t handcuff your own career just because some guys are assholes. It’s 2019. Screw them. Take their jobs and kick them to the curb! Or just keep building your resume until May 2021 and then jump ship. You don’t owe them a MINUTE more than your contract for tuition reimbursement.

And I hope your husband tells his coworkers that their comments are offensive. Otherwise he’s part of the problem too.

misstomorris :  yea this sounds like a toxic workplace. But just because you are currently in a niche market doesn’t mean you need to stay there! You can do a million different things with your CPA. You can work as an auditor, tax preparer, in-house accounting at literally any type of office, etc etc. 

Oh and if they offer you the management job ask for $15k more than they offer. It’s clearly a terrible job and no one wants it so they need to make it worth it!
