If it weren't for having to repay my signing bonus, I'd be throwing in the towel after these past 6 months

@D1, was hired for strategy, been doing mostly audit so far. The lifestyle is wearing on me, but I think I'd be able to justify it if I enjoyed the work/did what I was hired for

One of my friends hasn't worked on a single advisory project since starting....

@D1, I've informally mentioned that to my relationship partner a few times. Was basically told, we use IT audit to augment utilization when we don't sell enough strategy work. Hopefully the upcoming year end review will help my case.

Agreed, this is all bullshit here.

That sucks - can you go back to Partner who hired you? Say you paid your dues, learned a lot, happy to have pinch hit, now ready to do what you were hired for. Wait til busy season's over or it will fall on deaf ears.

And that's a side affect of being in BIG 4. At least you're still getting paid more than the auditors

Sucks big time - very depressing

Hang in there - don't want to give back your bonus
