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 the firms actually portrayed what these new consultants are getting into. Hours are more unpredictable, right now you will be working 55 to 60 hours a week probably twice a month. Wish there was more realistic recruiting at this point
