I'm in tax controversy and my CPA background has been somewhat helpful. I assume it is just as, if not more, helpful in tax planning. I assume that it would be good for broker/dealer and other financial services areas, but mostly because the accounting background will provide you with a general knowledge of businesses, their structures, and several types of transactions.

Did it help you secure your job in the first place too?
