I guess the main question is - why do you want to get a PhD. You did not quite address that question. Is that just to avoid looking for a job? If so, that's not a great reason to spend 4 years in school as you will still have to find a job at the end.
Now, you can teach with a PhD but is that the job you want in the end.
When an employer is hiring someone, (not a University but a business), they will look at your experience. If you have a PhD and another candidate has 4 more years of work experience with a proven track record, they may choose that person. Are there many jobs that absolutely require a PhD and would give it more weight than work experience? (I am not sure about accounting PhD so hence the question).
