I actually backfilled myself before I left my last firm 😊 Knew it would be a clean exit when I told the PM.

I usually let project leaders do the announcement, particularly where clients are impacted to manage expectations, and manage any potential fallout and impacts.

Personally tell the people you care about or want to keep contact with. The rest don’t matter.

Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
