Implications of the PwC sale? Are those fuckers coming for Uncle Peat’s Fed Audit stranglehold?

I was wondering the same thing. Were they waiting for us to expand our Fed assurance practice before jumping in?

Competition is good. Only so many Fed people now.

I wonder what it means for their FIAR clients. Just because they sold them off, does that mean that PwC proper can really compete for the audit? Seems like an independence issue still.

I'm pretty sure that they'll go by another name. They won't have the resources of big PwC, though, when it comes to bidding on the enormous audit jobs.

In my opinion... PwC is not going to get involved with anything federal for at least next couple years. PwC Public Sector is going to change their name in couple months and is going to struggle. Especially once Air Force FIAR recompete award is announced. I can't see PwC Public Sector winning that anymore...

I agree PwC 1. I don't see Air Force sticking with NewCo.

Since EY is auditing the Air Force, Air Force FIAR award is going to either KPMG or Deloitte. That would be a big win for either one...

Do you know how burned out you are exactly?

According to psychologists Herbert Freudenberger (who invented the term "Burnout") and Gail North, there are 12 stages.

Burnout has a wide range, from "I can't wait for the day to be over" to having a complete mental or physical collapse.

Make sure you pay attention to your symptoms and not lose track of who you are and where you need to be mentally, physically, and emotionally.
