What’s the best way to initiate an internal transfer from audit to consulting? Should I tell my direct manager first before I try transferring and be prepared to be off the job?

Do your laptops actually work well? EY laptops break constantly. It hurts my team's ability to get work done. IT replaces them if needed but with crap that breaks again. Normal, EY issue, or just me?
