Has anyone gone from big4 audit to restructuring?

I talked to someone a while back who went audit > FDD > restructuring for mid size firm. Said it was very difficult since he had no experience in that field, such as 13 week cash flows. FDD is basically detailed accounting and excel formatting, not true M&A/finance work.

Got in because the market was "hot" (ironically meaning there were a lot of distressed companies) during the start of covid.

KPMG1 does have a point. The only people that really consider FDD to be m&a work, are people at big4.

Difficult unless you go to a boutique

This is coming from experience. I networked a lot to get a referral at a boutique. The person I talked to and HR person both confirmed that they’ll take people from big4 audit but they are all high performers and almost alway have referrals from people. I ended up messing up the interviews and didn’t get it.

Probably! Of all the restructuring people at EY I only know of one female.

I did it!

In light of all discussions on FB, it seems to me that individuals at our firm have been removed out of EY beyond PIP related issues.
To help the community brace itself, please provide facts on your Utilization, level, leads, YoE at EY, and network.
My experience seems that the ones let go, had weak network.

I was wondering if with that just one year of experience in a big 4, going to another top firm (but not big 4) and staying until manager. Will I still have a shot of becoming a CFO or comptroller for a big company in the future? Thanks in advance for all the feedback.
