I think the challenge is in the tight deadlines, demanding clients, and being thrown curveballs / special situations

I don’t think it is especially technically challenging

Gets easier the more deals you do but I agree, has its challenges for sure due to

- tight deadlines when deals hit
- high learning curve as the work is not really similar to any other group
- small teams per deal so can’t really hide behind other members haha...

But deal work is much more interesting than say audit so will keep you on your toes.

Maybe it’s cause I’m newer, but I think there’s a steep learning curve and the tight deadlines only make it worse

Canadian with 1 year audit and 1 year FDD (both big 4) experience looking to transfer to FDD stateside. Experience primarily in energy / O&G. Heavy focus on using data and analytics (python, sql, tableau, Alteryx). Prefer to stay with big 4. Any leads?

Is the promotional structure in Big 4 TAS/FDD similar to how it is in Big 4 Audit? E.g. 2 yrs at associate, 2-3 yrs at senior, etc?
Or is it more merit based where you’re promoted when ready, e.g. 1-1.5 yrs at associate, 1.5-2 yrs at senior, etc?
If the latter, what’s the fastest you’ve seen someone get promoted and at which levels? Thanks
