Accounting advisory folks — what is the type of work that you do? How much do you make for your level? What are your exit opps? Is there a benefit to being at a B4 as opposed to a regional or national firm?

EY FAAS here - it's good. I work on US IPOs and carve outs advisory side (helping clients file, work with their auditors, etc.), corporate governance consulting (fancy for control implementations and the like), a little bit of technical accounting and research (this is generally a senior manager category of work), and a good amount of business development. I got a 30% raise coming from another big four audit. Hours are similar, maybe a liiiiitle better than audit. The work, the clients, and the people on my team are all significantly better. More interesting, more challenging, more cooperative, generally smarter, and more driven.

This was really helpful, thank you so much for laying that all out. I seriously appreciate it!

I was doing outsourced accounting at bdo which was in advisory

I will add the outsourcing group at BDO basically did technical accounting so I’m assuming that’s why it’s under advisory

There are so many aspects to Advisory. Could you be more specific? It can range from anything from tech accounting, digital/purpose built automation, Internal Audit and Sox work to Cyber, ERP implementations, and Finance Transformation (and that's just scratching surface). All depends on your skills and what group you are in.

Looking to jump to accounting advisory (AAS), so that wouldn’t be IT/cyber work. More interested in technical accounting.
