At Deloitte, they shame you if you don’t pass by calling you an audit in charge. Ey has no restrictions to be senior but you can’t get promoted to manager. At Pwc, what happens exactly? You become an a4 or get fired? Seems pretty harsh to me.

In my experience, those who don’t pass the cpa within 2 years generally fall into two buckets: 1) a combo of below average intelligence and lazy or 2) high performers workaholics who care too much about actual work they put the cpa on the back burner and lose their sections.
