US MD said no layoffs (at the price of no bonuses) - but reallllyyy.. OP I’d take it with a grain of salt. That said, yes overall it seemed very genuine and well intended.

Wow that’s great. I’m happy for you guys having to worry less about being laid off. Hopefully other firms do similar things (though who knows).

Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.

Also, I wouldn’t mind going back to b school if that’s what it will take to get in the door. Thanks in advance!
