Consulting assuming it isn’t internal audit or risk advisory or it audit

No that’s PwC AAS practice. No audit work

Consulting by far. Just don’t get tricked into IT audit disguising itself as consulting.

I’d say CMAAS/AAS/FAAS are slightly better than audit both in current pay and exit ops

EY1, I promise you anyone who has made it to audit partner could have hopped to advisory at some point in their career. Same with most senior managers. Some audit partners even have advisory side engagements, but keep their main service line as audit. The reason is usually that audit has a better work-life balance at the upper levels and, in the words of my partner, is significantly less “cutthroat.”

Almost 5 years at a top 10 firm with a job offer at B4 for a 20% pay jump, is it worth taking the risk with further layoffs still being talked about? B4 will look better on my resume and the money will be nice, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the stress of a B4 lifestyle and potentially getting fired in a few months anyways.

Hi All, Say you have an offer for Senior Test Engineer and SDET (not senior). Compensation is same. Both the companies are good.
