Risk is back office! Why would you leave a client facing role for a back office role?

like

Back office roles mean you aren't generating revenue, meaning you aren't on deal teams, meaning you don't really get carried interest, meaning you don't make $$$$$$

Yeah not always. I have a friend who did it. They don't promote unless you get your mba.

I'm making an internal transfer to FAAS service line (out of audit) and only got a $2K raise. I was under the impression that FAAS gets paid a fair amount better than audit? Was I mistaken? For context: I'm leaving audit as a "top rated" S1. I'm already compensated at the top of the pay-band (as told to me by the recruiting team who are helping to transition me). I also applied for PWC CMAAS, but was offered the same exact compensation as EY and was told there was no room to negotiate.

I feel so lost in my career. I have three years of B4 experience (1 year audit, 2 years risk compliance) and I absolutely hate what I do. I’m a high performer yet I have zero motivation. I don’t see myself becoming partner & I also dont see myself being a controller/CFO in industry. I feel like I made the wrong choice but accounting is all I know. Anyone else go thru this? What type of role/industry did you pivot to?

Slalom Consulting 🐠 How did you prep for your case? From what I understand (I could be wrong), it’s more focused on the logistics of an engagement (how would you structure/approach the project, engage stakeholders, etc.) as opposed to traditional “should Company A enter Market X”. If my assumption is correct, the standard case prep doesn’t seem like it would be beneficial. Are there any other materials you used?
