Why do you want to switch? I’m trying to do the opposite of you

Hours are good, but can drag depending on the deal. Comp is usually slightly lower but equal at PwC.

How’s fdd treating you?

I've realised that I'm more interested in accounting to be honest, and because I'm in FS, the nuances I deal with make it challenging.

Good to hear PwC treats both with equal respect, thanks for that!

I think my FDD experience is typical. When I first joined, there was quite a learning curve but the work forces you to get better. Just today, I've received 2 leaver emails off to greener pastures so if you join you'll probably not be at a loss for exit opportunities

I did a rotation in both when I started and ended up choosing AAS because in my experience the hours were more predictable in AAS and I generally liked the people more in my office’s AAS rather than my office’s FDD. In my experience in FDD we’d work 70+ hours completely out of the blue where where that didn’t and hasn’t really happened for me in AAS. However I do know people have faced unpredictable hours in both and there are pros and cons to each!

Which office r u in?

Why not join the AR&I group within TEARI ? They do more technical M&A work ex. Purchase Accouting memo, pro forma financials for 8-k

Predictably might be better than FDD, but unpredictability exists in any client role tbh. Sometimes I get clients who randomly want a certain deliverable for a certain date/time so I work til 2 am the night prior

FAAS pay is notoriously terrible

Just ask to be on some AR&I projects. TEAR&I is both due diligence and accounting advisory at Deloitte. We can explore both lines of work within the same group.

I’m an academic working at a research institute. I’m pivoting into tech. Got an offer at a fantastic company, but I’d need to take a $5k pay cut. (My current gig pays pretty well.) Long term, I may make more in tech, and this is my chance to pivot, and the job is interesting work and company has great culture. But not sure if it’s dumb to take a pay cut, even if it’s small. Any advice?

I have had many people that have transferred into FDD the past 8 months from audit and they end up hating it and keeping the turnover going.

Wish there was more realistic recruiting at this point
