Is anyone here constantly worried about getting laid off? I didn’t get moved to my next level (SA1 > SA2 > SA3 before manager) last review cycle (I was 6 months in the firm). Now I’m always constantly worried I’m going to get laid off. Overall get along w people at my level up to manager, but cannot get along with most partners and some directors. I’ve had good reviews from the former, and mixed reviews from the latter.

Wondering if this is anxiety or intuition.

Audit Partners — Do you see longterm profitability of audit in general? Is it going to be worth being a partner, financially, given the risk you take on, in 10-15 years? With audit bids increasingly being driven way down by competition, & lower level resources demanding (much) higher pay than it was historically, I’m not convinced the partner track is still as enticing as it was pre-Covid. Seems like the job market/higher staff pay alone has GOT to be taking a huge cut into partner pay.

For anyone who does Roth 401k, let’s say you max the annual contribution ($19,500). Within the Roth 401k, does the contribution itself become taxed ? I.e the contribution of $19,500 becomes ~$12,000 (example) Or, can you pay it off outside the retirement pool —> Where you still have 19,500 in the Roth IRA and let it grow?
