Tax question for any Accenture people who were part of the layoffs in August...did you see anything weird with state withholding on your W2? I relocated from VA to NJ in early 2020 and my state withholding switched to NJ when I moved. However (and I never noticed this at the time), all of my earnings, including severance, paid out PTO, and COBRA true up, are shown as taxable income in both states. My tax accountant is scratching his head.

Was laid off earlier and still looking for a job. I’m super interested in fp&a but keep getting sr accountant opportunities. Is it worth to bit the bullet and do the sr acct role for sometime and keeping looking or wait it out? Not trying to get pigeonholed into accounting.

Just left audit for Sr accountant job. Is there an expectation to ask for more work in industry? Feeling no since I’m not “charging hours” or submitting a timesheet but feeling way overpaid for doing almost nothing (not complaining just don’t want to be fired).

I was fired at my previous firm and someone who also worked there just joined my team. It was a really awkward time and very toxic. I'm not sure how much this person knows about my sudden "departure". My current team doesn't know anything about my past and I prefer it stays that way. We're going to have to talk sometime, but I'm not sure what to say if they ask what happened. Thoughts? I'm a bad liar. By the way, I'm rocking at my current firm and it's true that some jobs are not the right fit!

How do you guys deal with burnout? This job was amazing when I started and the pay is good, but I feel like I’m being ground down a little more every day.

Part of me feels guilty but then again I don’t because I don’t think my agency feels guilty for the long days/weekends.

On the other hand, we just had a round of layoffs so who knows if there are more coming down the pipeline.
