Management consulting

Advisory isn’t all sunshine and roses. Talk to me in the summer when audit is “working from home”/ hasn’r logged on in eight days and you’re trying to figure out whether today is a day when you leave at two or at midnight.

True dat, I just don’t miss the audit busy season that’s all.

Need advice. Grew up in a very conservative culture where people usually only marry once and make it work. I was in an ugly relationship prior to marriage , it was still extremely hard to break up. I am well educated , good looking and very responsible and ended up in a relationship with an illegal bum because I was extremely lonely. He was horrible to live with and even cheated on me but I still couldn’t leave him for years..... continued ..

I started a new role at a new company a month ago. As it’s a newly created role, everyone is still trying to find work for me. Other members on my team are busy and haven’t had time to help onboard me or give me work. My manager announced last week that he’s leaving the company as well.

I’m considering leaving. Another company has caught my attention, and I’m very interested in their products and culture. How bad would it look to leave a new job after 1-2 months though?

Is it common to not get a response on an offer other than they received it? We just put in an offer 110k over ask with 30% down covering any appraisal issues above asking, waived inspection after paying someone to walk through with us, and didn’t even get a no thank you. Is this how it goes now, or is this out of the ordinary?

Finishing up my second year in audit (been through 2 busy seasons) and looking for a change.

Thinking about a switch into advisory (either internal or another B4 probably), but torn between financial due diligence and accounting advisory. Would anybody be able to differentiate between those two?

I’ve done some reading about the hours, exit ops, etc but interested in some first-hand experiences/what the actual differences in the work projects would be. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
