My understanding from working on SEC Reporting accounts in public accounting is that this is the area of any company that most closely mirrors public accounting deadlines and hours. It will probably be a department full of ex B4 people with B4 work mentality, if you’re at a large public client you’ll still be on the same deadlines for filing, and it’s not unusual to end up working weekends and late nights in those roles.

From what I’ve heard from people that went to that role/from interviewing from that role is that it is the easiest transition from public accounting however it’s only busy (max 7-8pm) during 10k issuance, Qs aren’t that bad and everything else is easy 830-530 and no weekends
