Adrienne Gonzalez is JDA, and she writes the blog Jr Deputy Accountant. She also writes for Going Concern. Every year she becomes less and less junior, she is no deputy, and has never been an accountant. Never-the-less, she has quite a following in the accounting world.
Like a lot of accountants these days, she drinks, smokes, cusses and has tats. It all adds to her appeal. I love her.
Did you read her most recent blog post? “Defunct Colonial Bank Sues The Sh*t Out of Its Former Auditors, Including PwC.”
Like a lot of us, she doesn’t like the contemporary world of accounting. There is too much fraud in financial reporting, both in the preparation and the auditing. Of course, we can endless debate whether the popular auditing firms are guilty of fraud, self-interest, negligence or incompetence.
Adrienne has a way with words, especially when she loses her patience.
Can someone please tell me why the **** the PCAOB still has a job with this nonsense going on? Why the **** does PwC make $13 billion a year soaking its clients on audit fees? And why aren’t the people of the United States suing the **** out of these auditors too? …
Anyone else find it funny how they call the audit service arm “Assurance?” It has nothing to do with discovering fraud or giving investors actual peace of mind that the statements they are looking at are, in fact, prepared in accordance with GAAP. Rather it is a mafia-style pay-to-play protection ring that offers clean audit opinions in exchange for cash.
I don’t know if she’s correct in these assertions. However, her comments undoubtedly reflect the opinions of thousands of accounting information users who have lost their patience. Do we in accounting really want the words of the disaffected eventually to be voiced by millions?
It’s time to clean up our industry.
