For those who exited from Audit, How would you compare your work hours compared to the Audit? Please provide your current role as well! I saw that in deals, the hours are much more random and schedules are much more tighter! I am also curious if it's temporary workload considering the amounts of deals post-COVID.

Exited to FDD. Unpredictability is significantly higher. Total hours worked is quite a bit lower (100+ % utiliz vs 80). Used to spend probably 15ish weekends including sunday a year in the office, in 3 years in fdd i could count on one hand the days i worked over 2-3 hours on a weekend (haven't been to the office on a weekend one time)

What office if you don’t mind me asking?

Exited from audit to forensics. Over the course of a year I probably work about 30% less in total hours. However, the schedule is extremely sporadic - it’s not like I’m working 30% less consistently on a week to week basis. It’s more like random weeks with very little to do and random weeks where you’re working 60-80 hours. From what I can gather the same is true with most consulting/advisory roles
