In my early thirties, still an Engagement Manager only making $355k basic, plus benefits and guarenteed minimum bonus of $100k. What did I do wrong? #Satire #DoesAnyoneElseFeelThisTypeOfDiscussionHappensWayToMuchHere? #WhyDoSoManyPeepsNeedValidation? Not trying to put people down, but seems there are far too many people on the hamster wheel just churning and in need of validation. Any thoughts? Am I off base?

Would it be worth it to get my MBA after being in PA for less than 2 years? My tuition is free until I turn 26 (turning 23 this year), but I’d probably come right back to being a staff afterwards. If I had passed the CPA exams already I’d probably just leave for school, but I’m not sure what value an MBA would add right now

Looking for advice on how to get off a client engagement. I’m on a big audit client that’s year round - notorious for burning good employees out. The managers on the job are difficult to work with and won’t spend the time to actually coach people. I’ve been working crazy hours trying to get everything done they ask of me while still making sure to coach and assist other staff/seniors but it’s been too much for me to handle. I’ve gotten good reviews thus far but want to ask to come off the job.
