I have a status meeting with two notoriously mean client contacts next week and I’m dreading it. It’s the first status meeting for year end. How can I approach this and get things started right?

Anyone have any tips on how to work for someone who gets rude and takes it personal when they have to provide a review comment? ‘Did you even look at this before sending?’

Anyone here leave a job with a "buyout" due to a signing bonus? Did you pay it yourself or were you able to get your new employer to cover it?

anyone on here switch from accounting to equity research/banking? I know the switch can be a stretch, but not unheard of - looking to network / advice on leaving public accounting for finance roles
