Whats next?

Hi All,

So I am a big 4 senior who might be due for promotion to manager this September however I have had one of “those” clients who made me think that this whole audit thing doesn’t really mean much and things just end up being signed regardless.

I don’t mind the hard work involved with learning but I feel in the past few months the “learning” aspect has dropped off quite considerably.

A move to industry with month end reconciliation review would be mind numbing and I don’t see myself doing that at all.

What are some of the moves people made out of audit ? And how long did they last in their first move out ?
