I like it much better. Hours are better (for me) and pay is much much better. Was on $84k as a senior in audit. Switched to advisory and now at $129k. Projects are cool too! Always something new vs same client and areas

Similar experience for me. Went from 68k as audit A2 to 90k as advisory A2. Hours are definitely better, no more busy season, and work is indeed more varied than with audit

I'm doing financial transformation, so helping with risk identification and internal control development and testing. Also lots of slide decks.
