I have always embraced changes but I could not shake off what I see. I missed the quality in everything we do era...now it's all about technology and so called disrutpion. Less & less quality

For someone who spent nearly 20 yr at ey and been a high performer for last 6 plus years consecutively...l am feeling less and less belonging at ey...rather feeling the pink slip is near.

How do you handle feeling like you’re letting your partners down? Messed up an airport transfer this evening and I feel awful about it. Do other EAs make mistakes?! I feel like I’m the only one.

Do you think the title EA adequately represents your role? If not, what would you change your title to and why?

My position was eliminated on Monday 4 months after leaving my job in good standing. Do you suggest temporary work for a few months vs just finding that perm role? Thanks!

What kind of flexibility does your company offer? Ours offers one work from home day per quarter, which seems absolutely ridiculous

Partnering with another EA to try to change the culture in our office. Seems people are a little down right now. What are some ideas and things you have seen in your office that the employees loved?

Happy Friday! Opinions needed:I have been given a new EA position in my firm with higher duties (cover role for 1year) but no pay rise to reflect this. Is it fair to ask for one (Pro Rata of course)
