    Audit- easier to get into, hours aren't as bad, you get the ACA, won't get fired as easily, can go into banking if you want, people aren't as stuck up, can work outside London, can work in loads of different firms as a controller, you don't even need to go uni

    Big 4 audit -> financial controller -> good pay and allright hours,

    Not boring for people that want to do it. Banking isn't exactly fun is it

    Really? Wow
    But I'm not cut out for banking lol- the hours, the pressure, the job insecurity
    Banking definitely has better exit opportunities I guess.

    So is there any exit opportunity that audit has which banking doesn't?

    You're right about all of those, but the 2-3 years you do it for will forever be on your CV and is sort of a badge of honour.

    Well I guess auditors can become heads of internal audit departments and controllers, whilst bankers can't really.
