Should I stay to get my Attest License?

I am working at a local CPA firm and I haven't passed my CPA exams yet.  However, I have been working here over 1.5 years and my general license working hours have been signed off!

I really don't like auditing and want to leave strongly.  However, a lot of people told me that I should stay until I get my attest hours to be signed off.  To get my attest hours, I have to stay here another year or longer.

For future career, should I stay to get an A license?  Is it a big difference between G and A license if I want to work for industry?

Please provide your suggestion! Thank you!
