Got an assignment at an audit readiness clien- A-123. Welcome a short respite from real consulting, but how long can I stay before my skills begin to atrophy? Will it stain my internal resume?

Leave ASAP. The lack of rigor isn’t worth the inherent despair.

Just out of curiosity, how do you define “real consulting”? Is a123 considered staff aug?

I think that’s a fair characterization. My understanding is that there are some consulting aspects of audit readiness. But it’s never something the client wants, so it’s generally purely outsourced. Also, clients generally don’t want the service. You’re only there because poorly written legislation forces it. Could be wrong, but that’s my read
