Just fine. But I "grew up" in audit so it wasn't strange to me. I'm sure it's a little awkward if you're not used to it. But as long as you have a place to sit and a point of contact, it works just fine. Maybe they have an audit room you can even sit in?

Yep

Some clients prefer it. Some circumstances make it a good idea.

What was your experience like?

Yep. Definitely for provisions and tax return reviews...I also have large clients where we work from their office once a week--that's when we have all of our status meetings

Good to know, I was worried when I was told that I would be going to the client site until the end of the season!

OP, if I was in the same city as my team, I'd be at the client from the beginning of August to October, so no worries!

I’m so unhappy at my company and I have been for awhile. In January when we won a new client I was promised I’d be owning the work but now I work “under” a Strategy Director who has been unprofessional, awful, and generally inept. I’m doing all the work to clean up the messes she’s making, but no one sees her mess and she gets the credit for my success. I’ve brought it up to leadership and they just say “we’re aware and we’re doing what we can” but it’s been months and no action has been taken.
