What would the potential spin off mean for Forensics?

Hopefully we go with consulting


Ya being part of assurance
Chances are low but ya hope so!


Well if we go to consulting, hopefully it’d mean independence and conflicts would be a thing of the past, which would mean I don’t have to interact with our QRM leader anymore. (IYKYK)


That I could live with; “quality in everything we do” and all. It’s the attitude I find offputting.

I can’t imagine it would stay in audit. Too many conflicts. Besides it’s not like Forensics works on the financial audits.


I think (hope) we go to consulting, with some people staying behind to offer forensics services for enhanced audits, especially if that becomes a part of the audit like in other countries.


Prob go with Advisory


I suspect the majority of Forensics would merge with business consulting. We’ve been partnering for years so it only makes sense. Our work is more advisory in nature and not much work on audits.


Anything that doesn’t focus on ch. 1





If we would go to consulting, do you think that would mean our salaries should be increased to be more in line with the consulting salaries?

That sounds right, I was paid a little less than that when I was a senior in MCOL 5 years ago so adjusting for inflation or whatever it’s around 80.

Has anyone started their own consulting firm/practice here? Would love to hear about your experience


A friend who works for a large well-known org has reached for advice on a sticky matter. A personnel document containing details of her performance review was accidentally sent to a 100+ member group by a VP. While access was revoked, there were a handful of people who saw and opened the document. She’s furious. I told her that she has little recourse that I know of, but she’s in a unionized environment and thinks she does. Anyone have any experience or insight to share?


Additional Posts in Fraud and Forensics

2 questions:

1. Amongst all the big PA firms, who has the strongest forensic service line?

2. CAMS or CFE or CFF?(already a CPA).

Thank you!


Do you typically work less in forensic as you move up? Asking because I’m seeing managers through partners in audit working nonstop all day everyday


Wondering for anyone who got their CFF (Ceritified Financial Forensics) designation. Was it difficult? How long does it take to study for using the review course? Is the exam mainly multiple choice or short answer and how difficult? Any guidance or tips would help please. I already have my CFE but just want to know if CFF is worth it


Any openings in third party due diligence/ background screening? I am also pursuing CFE. Thanks!!

Can someone give me some insight on the CAMS prep process and exam? Time frame, rigor etc?

Does anyone have any forensic accounting interview/case study advice? I'm trying to internal transfer from audit after 2.5 years. If there are any online resources I can learn from, would be great too!


Any tips for how to pivot from Cyber, Risk & Reg Manager with a background in contract analysis, fraud/negligence/IP investigations into a more general Project Manager role at a FAANG (or similar)?

I’ve applied to 15+ positions (mostly on Trust, Security, Legal teams) and can’t even seem to get a phone screen.

Currently in the SF Bay Area, 8 YOE, ~$165K TC


A year plus into consulting and I’m not sure it’s for me. I plan on being around for a few more years but I want some advice on a five year plan to potentially pivot. What are some industry exits with forensic/disputes experience? And what are some things you did to set yourself up for a transition?


I recently passed the CFE and was looking into the CAMS next. Any suggestions on how to best prepare for the CAMS? I’ve been mostly reviewing the index cards that come with the prep material.


I am really interested in pursuing a role in forensics and making an internal switch from audit. Any advice on making this happen?
