All I’m gonna say is do it sooner than later

I’d say anything after Senior 1 is too late. Do one busy season as an Sr1 and then get the hell out, or else you’ll pigeon hole yourself

Do it sooner than later! I was in IT audit too for a couple of months, 2 months in and I already started networking with the cybersecurity team (risk advisory), the tech strategy team (consulting) and omnia/AI (consulting). I'm now in technology strategy and transformation and i love it!!! I also helped 2 colleagues from my old team (IT Audit) transfer to the same team and they're glad they did it :)

Don't get discouraged! When i started the process, everyone was telling me that its impossible to transfer, especially from risk advisory to consulting. They told me that my best chance was from IT Audit to Cyber - and even that was gonna be complicated. During the networking process, i was being told that I was gonna get staffed on project's and no one contacted me again - I spoke to more than 25 people it was honestly exhausting. When I actually transfered, it was mostly a matter of luck! I spoke to the right person (she was responsible of the staffing), at the right time (they were looking to expand the team and two people were leaving), and I was really well prepared (did alot of research about the team, what types of project they did, etc). And if nothing works, you can always switch to another big4 (i know people from IT Audit who went to KPMG in Tech Strategy Consulting bc the internal transfer didnt work out)

Consulting! if you want to stay in big4

I exited to management consulting, now working on digital transformation, it's definetly possible. You just need to be clear with your objectives and work towards them

Internal transfer into tech consulting or business transformation! Built a RCM for my latest engagement and the IT audit background was useful, even though I hated my time in TR.

For sure! Good luck with your calls!

Anyone ever dealt with fraud at Marcus? Had to call three times to get them to even initiate the process, now I have to mail in a written statement, and it can take up to 45 days for a decision.
