Hi Accenture 🐠, I recently moved to a different state and bought a 🏡 here. Can I still keep my affiliation with my precious office (SF)? Or do I need to switch? What is the policy? Also, I am up for a promotion. Will the change of office impact my promotion? Thanks.
My OPEX department (industry setting) was recently transitioned to a new director and he fundamentally disagrees with the last 2 years’ of approach and work. I was told that this is nominal and I continue to drive the strategy but he keeps sending stinker that all this will fail everyday and his feedback doesn’t match the other feedback we have.. but he has say in my impending promotion while he is a jerk and knows nothing on fundamentals we are building.. contd on advice needed...

I have been poached by my manager about a promotion and am working on a review to share with him. I have continued to express my interest in working on an upcoming brand strategy work, my manager agreed verbally. I just found out that he actually gave the work to a new AE of my team. When I approached him, he didn't give much explanation but that my time will come. How should I navigate this?

I wrote a rec letter for one of my legal assistants for law school right before COVID got bad and we all started working remote. Ever since then, this assistant has seemingly been slacking. There’s only so much I can actually see/review without seriously micromanaging her. I’ve spoken to her about her slacking at least twice and both times she just brushed it off. I want to withdraw my rec letter, but I feel like it’s too late. She is leaving at the end of the summer. Should I just let it be?
Geniuses can you please share some ideas/creative ways to track the following.. Case: have around 25 companies and associated info. Part of that info includes company contact point info (name, email) each company may have 1-8 contacts. Contacts change frequently. Ideally I’d like my columns to be |comp name | contact name| contact email |etc, but the issue is I need to track when people leave a company, can’t delete the data. Rn I have 1 sheet holding comp info, another, contact info.

Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
