I heard that the big accounting firms are using covid as an excuse to cut benefits despite some firms actually growing during covid. Is this true? If its true thats kinda sad theyre using covid as excuse to increase profitability at the expense of employees. Seems like a pretty obvious lie.

Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.

My husband is not home has to go out to work. I literally been begging them to balance out my workload. And I got told I’m hard to work with. I’m going to shut up keep my head down for now. I would have been gone but pandemic has got me down. I’ve been so stressed and sad. I know a lot of people would love my job.

Hard to be motivated to stay on track when i feel so sad about everything. Thoughts?
