Is Internal IT Audit much chiller? Isn’t it the same work as Big 4?

Yes but you only have to worry about the company you’re working for...big 4 you have multiple clients

Exactly this. Imagine working on only 1 IT Audit per year.

I went from internal it audit to b4 and I wish I could go back haha. I was bored so I wanted more utilization. I so wish I could go back to only "working" 37.5 hour weeks, Fridays done at 1pm year round, and being bored. We literally would watch movies at work because we had so little to do. I would take the boredom any day over the stress and chaos I work in now.

How’s the work life balance?

It’s definitely much chiller. The upward mobility may be limited though depending on size of group and organization however, there’s opportunities to go into IT or the business.

Hi everyone! I recently accepted a new job with a Big 4 and am also newly engaged. I have a couple of concerns… the main one being that I may not have enough time off for 2022 to cover taking off for the wedding, honeymoon, and then a couple of other weddings where I’m supposed to be a bridesmaid. Do you think there would be any wiggle room with managers allowing time off, or is it generally pretty strict? (Continued in comments)

Feeling like I'm starting over brand new, and the stress is really getting to me. Everyone at my old job told me I was at the top quality-wise, but the partners at the firm all tell me it's going to be 2 years before I'm really confident/comfortable. I'm a 6th year. Is this normal? Having bad imposter syndrome.
