Considering switching from another big 4 Audit as a 2nd yr staff to EY FAAS senior. Is the grass greener on the other side?

Thanks for your input! I broke the news to my SM and he tried to convince me it’s the same work as audit, which I find hard to believe

That sounds like a big jump from staff 2. Id take it if offered

I turned that down because I hate compliance work

It’s not compliance work lol - been in FAAS for four years. All I’ve done is value add for my clients (ipos, m&a, ifrs conversions etc.)

It’s definitely not the same as audit - I’ve actually never done an audit :) In any case FAAS is going to towards more digital implementation type work in the next few years (think blockchain, RPA,AI) so it’d be a good idea to learn some data science if you want to have other experiences instead of just doing accounting type work

I'm a young analyst in ACN with 1+ year of experience in cloud migrations.

I don't like to work in cloud service and also I don't like the banking sector. For this reason, I requested to be moved in another service in ACN. My manager said ok, but this probably takes several months. Next monday I have to provide a feedback to the other company. What would you do?

Has anyone moved from a big 4 to a BDO/GT/RSM? I have an opportunity to move to a mid tier as a manager or stay at KPMG for another year to become a manager.

Also, I look up and see that managers/partners are abused here in my B4 office. Will it be materially different at a BDO/GT/RSM?
