The community conversation and information sharing is one of the most valuable parts of the re: The Auditors site.
Future career volumes will cover diversity and inclusiveness, ethics, independence, and professional skepticism, layoffs, and the overtime lawsuits.

This book is the second in a series of compilations from re: The Auditors and my Forbes column, “Accounting Watchdog”. This volume starts a series on careers for auditors, internal auditors, consultants, and tax professional in the Big Four public accounting firms.
In this e-book I cover the recruiting process, salaries, and the competitive employment landscape of a career in public accounting with one of the large global firms.
This is not a traditional book but a compilation of all of my writing from 2007 until January of this year on AIG, Hank Greenberg, the asset valuation and collateral conflict between Goldman Sachs and AIG, and PwC’s relationship with two of its most important clients.
All of the chapters are available as posts on this site and Forbes.com, but I thought it might be helpful for some to see them in chronological order, all together.
The package includes thirty-three (33) essays including extensive links, almost 41,000 words, and 180 pages of stories about such characters as Arthur Levitt, Joe Cassano, Eliot Spitzer, and Hank Greenberg. There’s extensive coverage of the litigation related to the earlier AIG crisis for accounting issues occurring between 2002-2005.
All for $5.99.
I’ve been covering this beat for almost five years now and my experience in the industry goes back almost thirty years. If you’re interested in this business, this insight is not available anywhere else.
