No regrets. Best? Depends on the person

Depends on the group, but advisory is the way to go. From associate to manager I've consistently made a lot more money than audit/tax counterparts and work A LOT less than they do.

Agreed with EY1. But prob not gps tho

If you are in audit, then consider switching to FDD. Great pay and interesting work that always changes.

I have seen BB IB exits and front office PE. It’s doable but rare

FDD/Deal Advisory

Hi Everyone,

I am interested to join AWS/Amazon as DE

Could someone from Data Engineering team share your experience around following queries?

1. Do you get to work on big data projects and streaming data pipelines as well?

2. Which technical skills they would interview me for? (given that I have few months of full time experience in my current firm & prior Indian irrelevant experience)

3. Do you enjoy the working or does it get monotonous after few projects?

More questions in comment.

Any Deloitte people can advise why this position completely vanished both on Deloitte Career and LinkedIn? The position is“Accounting & Reporting Advisory - Intelligent Automation Senior”. Did Deloitte cut this service line or they just have no more needs? I think it is similar to FAAS Digital.


Generally speaking, why does advisory employees make more money than audit/tax? Is it because of the profit margins or something?
