Anyone who has ever worked at AKQA knows that this is 100% on brand for the *most* egomaniacal dooshwad ever. Imagine the enormity of ego involved in AKQA CEO getting his way in refusing to work under the Grey name. 🤢

"I'll retire from big law once I have $___"
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

Anyone in FS ever think about the MBA route? I know the opportunity cost is killer and only top 20 programs are worth it, but seems like our clients are all MBA’s and they’re making a killing
Please tell me if I’m wrong. I started advising with no experience at the end of 2019 with a 6 month old practice within a huge partnership. No salary but was told there could be a book of clients for me. In the first three months I was really active though of course I was very scrappy as I was just learning the ropes. Obviously COVID hit and we’ve pretty much been in lockdown ever since (not US based). By Q3 the shock wore off and we all got back to it (my boss included). I decided to focus on
