Risk Assurance

Do you guys ever feel that being with risk advisory is not quite as good as being an an actual consultant? What are differences you have noticed?

I was in S&O finance consulting and Risk team team. (Transferred to real consulting.. or so I thought from risk) Honestly the difference was that Finance S&O was way fluffier (i.e talk fluff bullshit about how AI and all those shit is going to transform the future and then try to finish by selling ERP implementation projects) There are some interesting projects but they are hard to come by. The core skillsets of being a consultant is the same, the only difference is the subject matter you work with. (i.e operations vs risk)

Isn't risk advisory/assurance just non financial audit?

Consulting takes more risks and PPMD are better at selling. The problem is that they have problems actually delivering. So always asks us to clean up their mess.

OP - the company might be higher in absolute $ but not so sure about hours/$. The DC people I work with work crazy hours, have less say in work/life balance,etc. I would not choose DC over my current role.

If an offer says 110 and 50 vested over 4 years , is that 110 + 12.5 per year for a total of 122.5? I feel like the offer was stated differently and made it seem like I was getting 160 lol
