Learn about bunch of different industries, how to record accounting transactions, how to do accounting research on technical issues you don't know, you get to see plenty of stuff outside accounting (valuations, etc.), opens up a bunch of doors for different career paths and you get to $100k+ within 3 years if you play your cards right, get to meet a bunch of people/connections (can sometimes be really helpful in getting jobs, of course sometimes this also doesn't matter much at all), flexibility outside of busy season, etc


Yeah like PWC said . You have to leave after 3 years to get the bump to $100k. But if you do need that solid 3 years of public to get that bump, which is why public can be valuable

i loved audit for the problem solving and critical thinking. the logic games of piecing together how the client’s systems and processes work in order to reconcile that missing piece of documentation throwing off your testing. the annual cycle of continually improving our understanding of the client’s business and financial reporting frameworks in order to improve our risk assessment and audit approach, etc. and if it weren’t for the impossible work life balance and fact that i generally did not feel appreciated, i’d have stayed in it. but i had to get off the client service train a couple years ago.

I don’t


And that’s why I came to industry lol

Free dinner if I work 12+ hours. Oh wait Covid. Nevermind. Not sure.


It’s sooo extremely rewarding knowing that we provide stakeholders and investors with confidence in the capital markets so they can make wise investment decisions. I love audit and I love KPMG!!! Go team!!! You’re all truly accounting rockstar masters of the universe!!! 🤩🥳


Watching the stock market, it seems like investors couldn’t care less about the financials.


This question is so funny, not sure if it’s meant to be


Get back to work, skacker


I not do like audit


Because my nontarget school and subpar gpa couldnt allow me to do anything finance related so im sucking it up in audit


Didn’t have to come for me like that 😅


The best part was bonding with your teams, and making a lot of great friends (most people starting out are around the same age and just got out of college).


Non-COVID times - the camaraderie and teaming. In general, I do like the flexibility (I work a lot but it’s when I want to) and being revenue generating versus a cost center. Does the good outweigh the bad, that’s a different question…


Right but any well run business would do that. Even insurance salesmen have margin pressure. That doesn’t make them a cost center though

Who told you I liked it?


I chose tax.


I love audit because I love its flexibility and diversity of the clients. I am not stock with the same teams and the same clients to work with. Also, my work has a definitive finish point and it gives the sense of accomplishment. I like to not being pigeonholed to one topic in accounting and constantly exercise my technical accounting skills. At the same time my job is not limited to the plain technical accounting: it includes IT, legal, writing, coaching people. Also, I enjoy to exercise critical thinking.


Honestly, the teams. But also, it’s fairly predictable. I j no ow when quarters/year ends are coming. And the work being recurring helps the pressure on selling and constantly being involved in RFPs less than in other service lines. For my life, it’s what works

@pwcpartners @deloittepartners @eypartners @kpmgpartners - Pay your employees more. I shouldn’t be working 80 hours/week for 1/2 the year making less 70k. It’s criminal.


Just FYI guys.

I’ve read a lot of big law posts, and if I saw such venom when I went into the practice, I would be very discouraged. My view is there are so many reasons why lawyering is exciting and great, and so many jobs that won’t suck your life from you, that, if you hate the practice, maybe it’s because you work in a horrible environment that values the dollar over problem solving.
