Big 4 uses Seigfried for busy season consultants. They pay more but it is temporary work. You can be either hired out of your local office or a road warrior.

 

Question:

1) Do Big 4 use ANY other consulting firms BESIDES Seigfried?

2) Are there ANY other consulting firms BESIDES Seigfried that have ROAD WARRIOR positions? (meaning they can send you anywhere in the USA for as long as they like but pay you more and cover your expenses)

 

Thanks!!!!

Siegfried renewed its contract with E&Y with more hours than before.  There are no other consultancy firms besides Siegfried that E&Y uses; not sure about other Big 4.  

 

Additionally, keep in mind that Siegfried is fairly unique in that it supplies a steady stream of auditors with prior Big 4 experience (read "auditors" and "Big 4").  Other consultancy firms generally are not as focused as Siegfried when it comes to audit even if they provide Big 4 people or if they have Big 4 alumni, they are generally more involved in transaction related services rather than audit anyways.  

 

Hope this helps provide perspective.
