Having worked at EY over 10 years and now with KPMG I can tell you for sure I couldn’t be happier to have switched over to KPMG. The firm, our leadership and most importantly our culture is truly amazing. Far surpasses anything EY ever had

Not worth. Just go industry. Never jump from one B4 to another.

EY7 I think they're doing it wrong. I'm 100% utilized and have no "bench time" but I like that part of it. I work 40 hour weeks year round, only thing that changes is what I put in GT&E. I've never had a mandatory Saturday or dinner in the office, whereas audit has that shit all the time. Maybe it's not like that everywhere but in my office Assurance works a ton more than us.

IT Risk Assurance

@Assurance Staff 1, why?

Btw it just renamed to technology risk. Which office/region? Im in the west

@Op - will vary by city and team to an extent, but highly team focused in good way.

ITRA guys seem cool enough, but I couldn't handle that level of mindless checkbox work

Not bad but depends on what region you want to go to, some are better than others

Ey 6 to be fair most audit work is mindless, but at least we get paid more to do it

EY6, I’ve been in both ITRA and Audit. Most ITRA folks are at 110% full utilization and have never seen a day of their career on the bench. Auditors go home at 4:30 6 months out of the year. ITRA for sure works a heck ton more than Audit.

I haven’t heard anything good about it in the northeast but idk about other regions

Hey hive mind! A headhunter reached to me about VP/SVP/Director opportunities at AlixPartners in EI or Cyber. A previous BAH executive referred him to me as a candidate. I’ve been in advisory and consulting for 10 yrs, am a Sr Mgr/Mgr type now, no MBA, have certs in cyber and management. AP seems great. I like cyber well enough but am not married to it. Two questions: 1) Thoughts on AP business and culture, and 2) Thoughts on which AP level I would be aligned to? Thank you!!
