Just got promoted to audit senior, but can’t imagine doing another busy season. I have some forensics internship experience from college and always wanted to pivot to forensics. It sounds like the firm is working mostly on COVID stuff these days, but I’m more interested in doing investigations work. If I transfer and have no choice but to work on insurance/claims, would it be better to stay in auditing? Is the insurance/claims work demanding/difficult intellectually wise?

The thing is no matter what firm you go to, it’s rare that you will be working on investigations year round. They are reactionary. There’s always some big event going that fills most of the time, whether that is big AML lookbacks, big post fraud monitorship work, mortgage loan compliance review, large e-discovery email reviews, insurance work, fema work, etc. Those big projects are the flavor of the year and are the bread and butter of big 4 forensics. It depends on what you think “investigations” are. If any of the above sounds like “investigations” then it is probably something you can find right now.

In my experience m, EY is doing the least amount of investigations across the Big4. Not to say the others are year round but definitely more opportunity and over time you build your reputation in a specific area which can be investigations which leads to more work there.

Try switching to a boutique. Not sure who is hiring rn but there has to be demand.

Lots of hiring in forensics these days and the work varies across firms.

You have other options other than audit and insurance claims lol. Look outside the Big 4 and to consulting firms like A&M and Alix. I promise you it’s a totally different and far better world

FTI is hiring, message me for a referral

I know we’re looking to fill a few roles at Alix in our forensics and disputes practices, happy to discuss

Welcome to the bowl!

Kind of personal...my boyfriend and I have been together for about 2 years. I’ve been on birth control for 8 years and we’re nervous it might affect us having kids. We’re not quite ready to have kids yet, but we’d like a decent amount of time with me off the pills. Has anyone had a similar experience or have any recommendations?

Hi Fishes, I need some help.
So I've got the offer letter from Genpact today, but I have to send the required docs and BGV should happen and then in 3-4 days they might send Joining/Appointment letter.
So my doubt is, shall I inform the current Consultancy that I'm rejecting their offer? Or shall I wait till I get the appointment letter from Genpact and then inform the consultancy?
It's already been 15+ days since I've joined the company via consultancy.
PS: I have just joined on 3rd Feb on C2H
