Any finance transformation consultants had luck exiting to Tech/Fin-Tech? Have not had much success so far and I assume it's because I don't have the typical consulting experience posted here (strategy or implementation consulting). Been looking at CorpDev, Strategic Finance, and Product Finance roles. 7 YOE, no MBA.

What type of hits have you been getting? What’s your non typical experience?

0 hits. By non typical, I mean most folks seem to be more strategy & tech implementation focused. Not many Finance MCs. My specific background is in finance transformation, mgmt reporting improvement, BU reporting changes, automation of financial models, and some hands on fin analysis to evaluate impact of reporting changes. Been cold applying and havent gotten much response. Trying to get referrals but no network in tech so it's a struggle. I suspect this is also my issue - trying to switch industries w/o referrals.

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat I’ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasn’t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and it’s hard to say if it’s falsified or if he’s just incompetent - and I don’t want to go to my other partners if I’m not 100% sure. But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.
