Work Environment

Most auditors work standard 40-hour workweeks. Some work more than 40 hours a week, however, especially when deadlines are near for filing financial reports, such as during tax periods and ends of quarters. Auditors work alone and also in teams with accountants. They work in offices and also from home, using computers, laptops, and smartphones. Self-employed auditors and those working for small firms can expect to work longer hours. Auditors also spend time working in clients' offices. A considerable amount of travel is often necessary to service a wide variety of businesses. In a larger firm, however, an auditor may have less contact with the client, spending more time interacting with the accounting team.
