I know this has been discussed before, but how hard would it be to go from assurance to FS advisory as an experienced senior/manager?

Probably depends on the type of advisory your contemplating and your comfort with process and technology. We are doing a lot with 606 and 842 on the Consulting side and could use more folks with strong accounting skills. Give me a call if you want to have a quiet chat about the type of work we do to see if it interests you.

I went from audit to accounting advisory 6 months ago, changed firms to Deloitte (through a referral), never looked back.

I’ve worked in PA for almost 2yr and have got my CPA.
