Eat Shit and Die troll? If you're going to be mean, take the time to spell it out. You shouldn't be this worried about your job. You're all most likely top performers since you're accountants. And on top of that built a sufficient resume for top four. Was just kidding about the spelling but if anyone would get cut, they'll land on their feet. Except you EY4. Because you have a piss poor attitude.

Why two rounds; that's moronic?!?!

What levels? Low performers only?

Idk who is next but you may want to focus more on spellcheck...just trying to look out.

Lol fuck you sir. Wave. You happy. One word is immaterial. Therefore I waive further comment
