I work in FP&A consolidations at a large sell side bank. I moved internally after working in the planning group of a Working Capital Solutions business. I often feel like I would enjoy client facing or advisory work because it would help me build a skill that could translate to me potentially running my own advisory firm one day… I feel my role just looks at numbers on a page which doesn’t help me develop translatable subject matter skills or expertise. I don’t want to be a robot. Any advice?

I see a lot of differentiating in post about RIsk Assurance and Risk Advisory. Would someone mind breaking that down by which groups fall into these roles? I am Tech Assurance but also on a rotation where I get exposure to other groups in risk, ie - Internal Audit, GRC and Tech Risk Management. I do like the risk realm, although I would hope to do something more technical in nature and not so much check box. Thanks ahead of time!

Is consulting not for me?
Moved recently into consulting and lately I've frequently been feeling anxious and upset and this has escalated in a period of downtime when we don't have many jobs on and many are on the bench. I've mostly been on the bench for about 2 ish months now and my prior engagement was an 8 month project with a distant, hands off manager where I frequently felt lost, misguided and unsupported as a new consultant (previously doing well as a big 4 senior in audit) (see below)
Anyone sick of traveling?
My manager scolded me for an output of my team member. Told that direct report to run through me his output so I could check to avoid the mistakes pointed out by my manager. Then he messaged his output to our group chat for my "peer" review. I felt insecure and disappointed. I've been trying my best to be a mentor and been really patient of their shortcomings. I just really feel down right now. I've just been promoted which means my boss appreciates me. But feels like Im not respected by my own
