How well would a seasoned audit partner perform if put in a staff accountant role? They keep all of their knowledge but only the authority of a staff.

Quite well but I think they’d be surprised by the coaching notes they get and how much longer doing the work takes than they expect

The biggest issue would be the proficiency with Microsoft office products and various other platforms used by staff on a daily basis.

signing partner my fortune 500 job would detail review a few workpapers ever year. If you failed his review you got lit the fuck up. He still knows how to roll (he’s one year short of late retirement).
