Soo what if I audited the company my brother works for, but didn't realize he worked there until after the audit was already over. For context, for the life of me I could never remember the name of the place he worked, and then my mom said it today and well.... it all clicked.

He doesn’t work in financial reporting so you will be fine



Per regulatory pronouncements, it is OK since he is neither in an accounting role nor is your bro an FROR; nevertheless, I implore you to disclose.


Don’t say anything.


Is he working in the warehouse or is he a controller?


He works in supply chain, I (obviously) never inquired with or saw anything from his department


Never tattle on yourself


tell your partner and be honest...better to be sheepish and honest than try and hide the truth and have someone find out later


Wrong again!! Unless, PWC is that much more lax...

Why would you need to disclose it if it’s not an impermissible relationship?

PWC may not, but EY holds itself to the highest standards.

Do distant cousins also have to comply with independence?

No, not unless you two have a close personal relationship. If yes, you may not he able to work on an engagement at the cousin's employer.

Hello everyone
I am looking job for Business Analyst role
Skill set : PowerBI, Tableau, SRS BRD, requirement gathering
Experience : 2 years
Location : Nodia, Gurgaon
Please let me if any one can refer me Or update me any openings


My CEO whom I work closely with is a complete narcissist. When she speaks to me it’s so condescending and rude it’s making me sick. I thought I was hiding it well but apparently I’ve gotten to the point where I am visibly stressed. A colleague asked was I okay after our teams meeting yesterday. I want to quit but finding a job is difficult these days. Should I hire a coach or contact recruiters? What’s the best method?


Partner staffed me, another mid & a junior on a deal. Plenty that junior could help with but it’s clear he’s not tracking the deal and not gonna do anything unless specifically asked. (He’s a 3rd or 4th year) Are we unreasonable for being frustrated he’s not taking more initiative if we haven’t specifically asked, or are juniors nowadays taking a “don’t speak unless spoken to” approach that we just need to get used to? I can’t tell if I’m a bad manager or if he’s just lazy.

Hi all, I’m wondering if anyone here works in house and if they’d be willing to share the company as I’d love to make a move from agency to in house but finding it a bit difficult. My mental health has suffered and my happiness is non existent. The constant “on” has finally pushed me away from wanting to do agency life anymore. Anyway, thanks for reading and hope you’re all doing alright health wise.

What firms have the least hours? Are there any firms (preferably in South Florida) where the norm where busy season almost never goes over 50 hours a week and the rest is generally 40 hours most of the time?

I kinda like being able to switch clients every few months or weeks and every industry job I look into just seems so boring.
