Currently employed at a smaller firm, therefore I am more hands on with my audit projects then other firms. I just finished my FIRST audit job, and I actually feel like I did a good job considering..

Wth is a field leader?

It is my first audit job. Being that’s it’s my FIRST audit job, I have questions for my field leader and with every question I asked, he made me feel like I could not ask questions. It got to the point where I messaged someone else from my office for questions. Now that the job is done, I feel like I did a bad job because of how he is and worried about a bad review from him.

Do y’all not say staff/senior/manager? Never heard someone refer to their boss as an audit leader. But, anyways, yeah unfortunately theres a lot of shit head seniors out there like that. Like all that you can from anyone you can and then strive to be a better teacher than them

Why is there this assumption that people at smaller firms are more “hands on” than at larger firms? I have been at PwC 5 years and have never been on an engagement team where we just looked at one area. I know this happens on really large teams, but not every team. And any of the larger teams I’m on, we make sure people are rotating to make sure they are getting exposure to different areas.

I agree..that specialization is more for like F200 clients. Slightly smaller public jobs still give plenty of exposure typically
