Internal audit vs. external audit:
Partner, "At a public accounting firm, when your doing external audit support, you’re doing IT testing but it’s around a financial application. On the internal audit side that’s just one sliver of the work. We’re looking at those applications but we’re also doing a variety of IT process reviews, IT technical reviews, a whole host of things that are not financial reporting driven. Plus, when you’re at a public accounting firm in their internal audit shop, It’s somewhat cyclical, you’re doing that when there’s down time between external audits. It’s not what you’re doing every day. You get pulled off of that quite frequently to do external audit support."
Partner, "When you are working external audit, you sit across from your client serving as sort of a test provider. External auditors can be critical and judge-y when they talk to you because that’s their job. The mentality is: I’m working for you across the table from one another not sitting next to you.
Clients see internal audit consultants as sitting on the same side of the table. We sit with management and help them solve their problems and that’s all we do. We are always an advocate for and with management "
