How client-facing is FDD work? More or less than audit? How often do you find yourself chatting with a client vs doing back end work?

Different type of client. Usually you only chat with a small group of people , CFO, Controller , VPs. Deals is very secretive due to the nature of a company being acquired. Audit everyone knows they are being audited so you are freely to ask questions “ hey this doesn’t tie”

Yeah it’s a different nature of client facing interaction. It can be a lot of client facing if there’s challenges to be worked through and there are times it can be quite limited due to some ibanker hellbent on being the mgmt gatekeeper. I’d say on average it may be less than audit, but it’s better quality of a conversation and connection because in varying instances you are speaking with the cfo, perhaps ceo/coo/owner/etc. as opposed to a controller and their clerks.

Definitely less than audit as associate/less experienced senior. You’re the excel monkey

They’re not. It’s a different level in FDD. You’ll learn as you go, but, but expect to be slow and suck at first.

Recent career-switcher here. While I’m a veteran with the ad process, I am new to the UX agile process. Is it normal to not use briefs whatsoever? Is it normal for the UX research lead to have a stakeholder workshop (sans designers) to think of concept “thought starters,” then have a separate meeting with the UX design lead to vote on which 1 of 3 concepts to proceed with? In advertising, this is analogous to the client and researchers doing the campaign idea then telling the CD to execute it.
