Both are same practice. 40% it external audit 30% it internal audit 40% advisory woke like it risk management, vendor risk etc. You start with basic of walkthroughs and control testing but that's cause it's important to know the basics before you sit in board rooms telling how failure of few ot general or application controls can cause financial statement to fail or not. Or how it helps a company strengthen controls. Or how a legislation or regulation will wreck havoc to a company with immature control environment. If the student likes technology but doesn't wanna go in implementation or coding it's a good field to be in. Plus growth and always job security. Source - 9 years in this field across 2 countries, worked on global projects with 13 international partners listening to me plus now corporate job where I challenge senior leadership to get their shot together. Oh most important thing. Have a tough skin and ability to learn.

I believe that for KPMG the new group (mentioned above) has no actual advisory work. It’s all internal/external audit. I would be shock if EY does 40% advisory work though. Probably closer to 10-20%.

I will say FSO is quite strong as it's highly regulated so given choice go to FSO as we only get financial services clients. Other big4 don't have dedicated teams

Same thing but EY FSO is better brand.

I have a supervisor who nitpicks things the way you would for an intern or a junior and I’m trying to navigate.

For example, she will ask me to attend a meeting in her stead or write an email for her and she will completely edit my notes or my email not spelling errors or anything but completely reformatting and there’s no real pattern to the way she does it so I’m not learning.

The firm “encourages” reaching out to partners to chat, though I’ve tried and been essentially ignored. Partners rarely have enough time to give me feedback, so I feel they don’t have time to chat.
