Looking to leave my auditing position with only 3 months of experience... I'm in a relatively small firm, and my manager's micromanaging is insane... Want to go into advisory, any advice is welcome.

Yeah buckle in and keep your head up. You’re 3 months into your first job and probably still on your first manager/project. Look for ways to give your manager assurance that what you’re doing is correct so you can build that trust.

Revisit this thought again at the 6 month and 12 month mark and see how you feel. Should take 6 months to feel like you’re adding value and 12 months to feel like you’re good at being an analyst.

If you don’t want to wait that long, do everything I said above and finish reading Case In Point while you do it.
