Easy? No - the standard background is former financial statement auditors. Possible? Yes, just be able to demonstrate you actually understand accounting and #s and network a little

Also - do you think its more difficult for a senior associate to make this transfer than an associate? Should someone try to make this transfer right before promo to senior or right after?

If this helps, I moved from risk to FDD before 1 year, but switched to a dif big 4

Not easy but possible. I made the move from IT audits after a little under a year. A lot of networking and learning the overall and day to day in FDD.

How did you do it?

I just did this, so definitely doable. Feel free to Dm

Is the promotional structure in Big 4 TAS/FDD similar to how it is in Big 4 Audit? E.g. 2 yrs at associate, 2-3 yrs at senior, etc?
Or is it more merit based where you’re promoted when ready, e.g. 1-1.5 yrs at associate, 1.5-2 yrs at senior, etc?
If the latter, what’s the fastest you’ve seen someone get promoted and at which levels? Thanks
