Why do so many people in FDD hype up FP&A exit opportunities? It seems like: 1) most of those opportunities would’ve been available for high performers coming out of audit; 2) financial reporting managers (and higher) make the same, if not more, than people in FP&A; 3) FP&A is not “FIH-nance” - it’s glorified accounting that is somewhat forward-looking but ultimately isn’t that much more interesting than debits and credits.
