Should I take Kroll TAS or stay in big 4 audit for one more year and then apply for big 4 FDD (currently have 1 YOE in audit)? My end goal is to switch to IB.

My concern is I don’t see too many people switch from Kroll TAS to IB on Linkedin (lots of Kroll valuation though). I don’t s see too many people move from Kroll TAS to big 4 TAS either.

You could easily go kroll to big 4, take the offer now there’s no guarantee you’ll get a transfer or into a big 4 from audit.

I switch to Kroll TAS from big4 with 2 YOE. So far I like it. The group is leaner (3-4 people per deal) and you have more opportunity to learn the ins and out of the whole databook instead of working on one thing and doing the same for all deals kinda like a factory assembly line at the big4. Granted it’ll be a bigger learning curve but the experience is valuable that you can easily transfer to the big4 TAS if you want to later. Right now big4 want people with TAS experience not just audit.

Honestly just take your Kroll offer to your engagement partner and tell them you are quitting because you want to pursue TAS. If they value you they will make the switch happen. They may ask you to finish out the next busy season, but that’s better than going to MM now or waiting a full year just to apply to other B4 tas

like

Agreed on this but if they ask you to do another busy season I would say no and see if they’ll transfer you asap (I did this and they didn’t ask me to do another busy season and transferred me asap)

Take the kroll job if that’s all that’s available.

Thanks everyone for your responses!

FYI Kroll has IB. You could try for an internal transfer if that’s what you’re aiming for.

Take Kroll, I just did. I literally didn’t know to much for being in audit. But I’m learning so much

How big is Kroll fdd practice and bonus%. Not sure if it worth for jump from big 4 now given the huge comp increase
