Is EY even hiring in FI(D)S?

Yes, I am a CPA. Going for CFE next.

Following because it sounds like I'm in an identical situation right now. Audit partner won't approve a transfer to forensics because he doesn't want me to come off his team, but instead I'm just going to end up leaving the firm completely.

like

D1 - I currently don’t work in Forensics, but want to. It doesn’t look like a transfer is going to happen for me, so I have to make a move to another firm. Why manager level too?

like

How else can I get into forensics? It’s not going to happen at PwC and I don’t want to stay in Audit until manager. I think my only option is a lateral move as a Senior to another firm. I don’t think anyone would hire me as an Assurance manager for a forensics position .

Move now as Sr. It will be hard to run an investigative team without doing the grunt work for at least a couple of years. A solid partner left for FRA to do more investigations. I've heard good things so far.

like

If you’d be ok with a lateral move EY Forensics is an option (shameless plug). I know the NYC office works a ton, Dallas is pretty laid back if you’d be open to moving.

like

Very flat organization. Which location are you looking at?

NYC, I think it is a newer office .

Heard the partner there is really good

I’d stay big 4 if you’re under Manager level

Thanks D1!

Unless you were leaving for a promotion I wouldn’t do it

Where are you located?

In NYC too?

Any Analytics exp?

I live close enough that I can commute to NYC
