How do you deal with a teammate that creates unnecessary work for themselves and others and then acts passive aggressive towards the team? Example - MD has already reviewed and signed off on the document and their feedback was incorporated. Teammate then takes 3 hours to change a ton of the content before sending to client.

Just worked a full 10 hours today due to a market research vendor data collection error. So glad I found out Friday afternoon and we have a client check in tomorrow and I was made to redo a week’s worth of analysis and deck building over the weekend. Taking a break, and a drink, for now.

So I picked up a good project from another teacher group. A teacher assigned a random project to her students in which they had to show her a project they did during this time: a meal they prepared from scratch, a new hobby, etc. She was blown away by what they had been doing- murals, knitting, DJ set ups. The kids will be all right :)
Help. Working with 2 supervisors on an offering they are both experts in ... they both have visibility into my work... how do I reach out to one of them about a potential new client without getting into trouble if the other finds out? I have my own preference on which I think is best for the job but feel stuck as they both can impact promotion of me
I’m a new manager and am trying to get off a client. Need guidance if I should do it. I work with a very nice senior manager who is up for partner. She gave me a very decent review. The client is horrible though. Piecemeal review comments, constant updates workpapers and last minute changes. The only good thing is working with this senior manager. She is also my counselor. I asked her to get off of this account, and she said the firm probably won’t allow it. I have another senior manager I work
Noob question here but realized I sent out an email with a brief typo to a client meeting chain. I said “Out” instead of our”. Is this like a big deal? Normally, I wouldn’t ask this but my brief experience in consulting makes me feel like every thing I do will be under a microscope and my manager will talk to me about this
I am so happy to not be grinding out 1065s, K1s, or 1120- RICs anymore . This role I’m talking to cpa firms about outsourcing work, tax software companies, mapping data, educating client representatives about tax issues, I’m making 30% more , less hours. Someone change my mind here with work being outsourced to India and automated - is the accounting profession about to change ? Especially public accounting ? I hated getting back some review points on returns .

The daily internal struggle of trying to decide if the project is legitimately poorly designed and managed, or if I'm just a dummy for not "getting it." 🤔
Trouble networking virtually; I started recently, 3 months ago. I am not sure how projects/internal moves work but I was wondering if anyone has advice on networking virtually? I am finding it tricky because I don't know anyone apart from my team & I can't view Talent Marketplace because I am on a billable project, not sure how long it will go. I enjoy my work and not looking to move just yet, I wanted to see what else is out there and looking for opportunities to network with more people.

Hello Fishes, Could you enlighten me about which role has more demand in market AWS developer or AWS Solutions architect?
Legit question: now that 90% of you all don’t have an expense account or travel, why are you doing consulting? Wlb and pay are shit, professional dev opps are good but can be developed in 2-3 years - so why not leave after
