PwC CMAAS or KPMG FDD? I have no idea what to pick, just sick of audit.

Very different jobs. Pick based on what you want to do

FDD

I’ve done both and cmaas is a lot more audit assistance and FDD is no audit whatsoever unless you’re like reviewing some audit workpaper to factor it into your QOE analysis

Did you do CMAAS at PwC? I have been in PwC CMAAS 6 years and have only spent 2 weeks helping with audit assistance. If that’s the case at KPMG it is because your practice is still small.

FDD imo

Yes they are super different. If you want to do financial analysis then do FDD. If you like technical accounting and research then do CMAAS. CMAAS may have better hours but imo the work is less interesting and you learn less bc you aren’t working in as fast paced environment.

I would probably go with FDD (what I am doing right now), because I think it gives you some financial experience in addition to your accounting audit experience. However, FDD is still more accounting focused than what you might consider a typical finance role, but it will not be as in depth as CMAAS.

The hours thing is a lie. No matter what you’re going to work a lot lol go based on what exit ops you want

FYI - you will have a very tough time in interviews if they are able to determine that you are just looking for a switch from audit. This is the #1 reason for which auditors are rejected to these groups

People can have totally different views about CMAAS because the work they varies so much...hours are not guaranteed but lifestyle in CMAAS is more predictable. In FDD you can get notice to travel next morning or getting data room open on Friday afternoon and then your whole weekend is ruined

Have heard the hours are better in CMAAS/the equivalent. Is that true?

Philosophical question (not trying to be political, just a genuine question I’ve been grappling with): do you think being pro-choice and pro-vax mandate are logically inconsistent? Both are sincere views of mine, but upon further reflection I haven’t been able to think of a way one position could be completely defended without undermining the other. Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?
