Anyone do accounting advisory for companies like CrossCountry, Siegfried, or Morgan Franklin? What’s the work like? Seems interesting but I’m worried it’s basically temp staffing at random companies instead of true accounting advisory

That's because it basically is temp staffing.

I think more financial statement compilation type work than complex transactions so just depends how technical you want to get. If you want to work on really complicated stuff, probably wouldn’t make that move. If you are okay making 842 schedules and drafting basic financials, then it works.

I’ve been at Siegfried for ~18 months - I spent a year on an M&A project, 6 months doing equity comp/consolidations accounting (basically backfilling two roles, so that felt like a temp gig), and I’m about to move on to an IPO readiness project. Coming from audit, I’ve found the work has been really interesting overall (excluding equity comp accounting), and the pay is amazing. Let me know if you have any questions!

Those have been rough to listen to. Thankfully since our events have been virtual over the past year it’s easy to mute/walk away when the topics get too political. I’m hoping that now that 45 is out of office we’ll stop hearing so much about him 😒
