Is switching from audit to TAS possible?

Absolutely, likely financial due diligence. You’d do a rotation depending on the firm before switching

That’s the case at EY, at RSM it’s more flexible.

Yes, this is the most common transition. Most tas folks are ex auditors.

like

Any given TAS FDD group will be made of up of 90% ex-auditors. It's a very common and natural transition.

Right now is probably the easiest time in the history of TAS to make that switch.

But do some research first. It is not the “holy grail” of transfers for everyone. It’s actually overrated imo

Why would you say it’s overrated?

Thank you all for the feedback it’s definitely much appreciated!

Yep. Audit to valuation, FDD, and/or CMAAS had all been done.

Hello, does anyone work as an auto underwriter for insurance? I recently got accepted for an internal job position and was offered $50k. I’m currently a claim processor making $20/hour so the offer is more than what i’m making but is low in comparison to the average salary for an auto underwriter in AZ (which is around $58k). I believe because the company knows how much i’m making they lowballed me. Any tips on how to navigate the salary negotiation and can u share ur salary ?

A surprising thing I've learned in reaching out to my network for freelance is just how unfriendly my work-friends get once we're not working together. Am I alone in feeling like I'm being shunned when my messages go unanswered, or answered days later with a half-hearted "I'll ask around" and then crickets? For all the hate at recruiters for ghosting, it hurts hella more when people you bled with in the trenches do it. Let me hear you if you've felt that, and if you've done it, tell me why?

Recently started in FAAS in a new city after a few years in audit at another big4. I feel like I am regretting the change. The work is slightly better than audit but it’s just not what I thought it would be and my team is not very friendly or helpful. Their attitudes mixed with being virtual in a new city is emotionally affecting me. Any tips to help the transition? I don’t want to quit this early on but at this rate I can’t see myself staying for the long term.
