I transferred to FDD as a senior 3 and made manager the following year. Definitely possible.

Any chance I can connect with you? I’m starting at EY soon from audit and would love to get your insight on how you got promoted so quickly

Ey will promote you to manager. They hire s3 from audit all the time who make it to manager on time

I’ve seen it a few times with someone coming from audit and did it myself, though in accounting advisory. I would think AAS to FDD is even less of a jump, especially if you supported diligence projects during your time in AAS

If you have a really strong year of deals but I wouldn’t say it’s an easy jump. Managers are really running the show and usually takes more than a year to get used FDD. I would say 1.5 years is the quickest I’ve seen a transfer get promoted to manager.

I don't really think you'd be promoted to manager with less than a year. There is some overlap, but I feel like you will still need 1-2 years of FDD experience before you move up to TAS manager. I wouldn't let this derail your hopes, since you could maybe get their faster if you truly prove to your firm (current managers and above) that you could work in the manager role.

In big 4, As far as I understand you come in as a senior 1 in FDD since it’s not the same type of work. Not sure if that’s accurate

It’s kpmg I’m not surprised

It’s possible. How likely it is in this environment, I don’t know. But wouldn’t say it’s impossible.

May I know why you want to make the switch? You’re already in accounting advisory and pay should be the same. At the end of the day FDD is still accounting and won’t lead you to PE or IB because that’s a common misconception

How realistic is this and who can get your foot in the door?
