Your promotion will be controlled by audit and TD won’t be involved in this summers performance reviews etc, if you like diligence and want to switch after your rotation you would keep your title. The reality is that inexperienced managers and seniors do the same work in TD, we hire audit managers with no deal experience semi frequently and don’t demote them.


Repeat senior 2 or take manager early promo? What looks better for exit opps? Would I be manager for audit interim season and demoted to senior once I switch? How does promo bonus factor in?

Don’t need to switch into diligence to be a CFO. I’d do it if you find the work and teams more engaging, and/or if you later want to get yourself into something more finance and deal based. I believe strict accounting exit ops are similar and probably better from audit since you’ll have the manager title

Almost gold standard across the board? As in you’re receiving multiple gold standards? Surely people still aren’t handing out gold standards like candy...

Because the SWR Talent team keeps telling its people that gold standard should only be achieved by a handful of people per category across the region across all service lines. They say it’s aspirational but not really achievable only in the rare circumstances

EY3 that’s quality feedback. Thank you

I have never seen KPMG FDD hire an inexperienced manager. You would just spend an extra year as senior. That being said, my engagement MD was just telling me today that our careers aren’t a race and even though one year seems like a lot at this point (since it represents a quarter of your whole career to date), it’s really not in the grand scheme of things. You should collect the experiences that are tailored to your goals and evolving interests.
