Unlike some of the more high-profile VC jobs (such as venture capitalists), accountants and auditors enjoy a good work/life balance. Their work hours are pretty standard (i.e., 9-to-5, Monday-Friday). Advances in technology even allow some accounting and auditing professionals to work at home or in other remote locations (such as at a coffee shop or even on the beach). Some employers offer flexible work schedules (e.g., Fridays off during the summer in exchange for longer hours during the rest of the week).
