what challenges? the challenge of doing the same things over n over? the challenge of auditing the same companies over n over? applying the same accounting standards every year?

if the only challenge to a job is simply the workload, n not the brainpower or intellectual challenge, then you deserve to be paid peanuts.

already i think auditors are overpaid at SA lvl and above. This is a role that poly & non-degree holders can do. In fact, Big 4 audit in the UK hires a lot of "school leavers". Those ppl that leave after high sch and don't go to uni but join as apprentice.

Reliable info posted in this thread in first 2 weeks of July. You can search there or enjoy being confused by random numbers popping up from random salary generators.

It's really abt the go-getter attitude n mindset. If you're not lazy n willing to improve or maintain yourself, you will find the time to go to gym, yoga, spin class all that. Not everything can blame it on long hours or money.
How's this surprising?
Females in audit are equally as unimpressive as their male counterparts. That's why. Definitely not Type A personalities otherwise they wouldn't be in audit, or even big 4.

Iím not finding excuses for auditors to dress badly or to not exercise. Personally I feel thatís the auditor personalities. They donít want to stand out and dress nicely so they dress Jialat like their colleagues or managers. When I was still in big 4 quite a number of my batch are very fit .whatever points you brought up is what I want to say, is just the industry norm, where people have no intention and no meaning of dress nicely or care abt their looks. For management consultants , tbh they need to look nice, thatís their requirement , doctor and lawyers maybe not so, unless the lawyers work in corporate finance/M&A field

I feel b4 too slow to react and dismiss great resignation as normal attrition.

Donít think b4 doing a good job at stemming resignations, now lock in death spiral when people leave because other colleagues leave and no one left.
