Inheriting a firm vs company man
Hey guys,

First post here, and was hoping to a second opinion on a matter that I need to make a decision on.

I am an accounting student, and my dad is a CA (sole practitioner) who runs his own small firm (100-ish clients). When I am finished school/articling, I will be in a position to take over this firm, if I want to.

So that being said, I was wondering if you guys could chime in with the advantages/disadvantages of taking over this small firm, vs. taking a career as a "company man" so to speak, and what you guys think would be the best route to pursue?

Thanks very much -Cameron

Thanks guys. I guess I should have clarified that I have already talked to him and received his opinion, but I wanted to get some other opinions as well.
