Risk Assurance

Expected to complete a 6 week manufacturing internal audit in 4 weeks with a team member who just joined and no experience. Director wants the draft report on the final day of the audit. Thoughts?

Say youll try to get it done by then, but client delays could deter that. At the end of the day, the director is responsible for the engagement and some deadlines are just not realistic. They won't fire you cause they need you more than you need them.

Agreed - id set a plan on procedures required, then scheduling any meetings with key contacts asap - so the email is out early and if client is slow it’s on them Also any pbcs list you created send it out quick so the timing shows you are on track Then if the client is unresponsive or difficult then the director gets involved and does the smoozing to get the client to just give us what we want By then once it’s all scheduled and Pbcs obtained it may be late and if not all pbcs are received or the wrong pbcs then if then the director may have to jump back again shake the client up a bit - that’ll buy you time to document Now those email time stamps will serve as evidence just in case your director comes at you demanding why this ain’t done in 4 weeks

What’s the overall culture like at PwC in Advisory, in the IA/Compliance service line? Evaluating an offer from them, but I must say I don’t know too much about the overall firm/culture.

Used to work at Big 4 for almost a year and left to a mid size firm for more pay and to work with financial services /capital markets . I enjoy the midsize firm more but feel like I should have stayed at big4 a bit longer for the “prestige “. Did I mess up career wise?
