Nice office. Partnership heavy.

like

Lots of workaholics. Technically, I've heard good things, but i don't work with them too often.

My impression is that they're much heavier in partnerships (2 partners and one MD with fully staffed team all the way down) and states. The two biggest tax clients in Dallas are both partnerships. From the outside, that group has a reputation of being very close knit.

SALT is respectably sized top to bottom (whereas Houston has all managers plus a director and no one else). Used to have a MD and partner, but that partner moved back to his original state. Now, it's just the MD. ITS is small and hasn't quite recovered from when a partner left about 5 or 6 years ago. They have a team, but Houston is much deeper there.

Office as a whole is about 400 strong (all 3 service lines). They're in a fairly nice building on an upper floor. Only thing is...., not a fan of their restroom. The doors.... are fanned!? I haven't been back in a while, but the doors were awful.

As always, thank you all! 🐟

This might be a long shot but I'm looking for a volunteer who is trying to break into a federal career. Maybe a transitioning veteran, recent grad, or career-changer.

I'm pursuing my master career coaching cert and need to do a recorded 45-minute session. You don't have to be identified if you don't want to.

The single session is all I'm asking but could certainly turn into a longer lasting coaching relationship (at no cost), if you like.

Ok fishbowl family - I need advice. Rising senior 1 here and realizing that I genuinely get no joy out of audit. I’m way too stressed and really do not care about accounting and have made it a life goal to never book a journal entry. I want to take the next year to figure out what my dream job is and go for it. Here’s what I like: I love talking to people, mentoring & teaching, organizing, learning. I literally loved everything in college- I was between majoring in accounting or psychology. 1/X

Need advice. I’m in industry now and report to Controller who reports to CFO. I found out my raise is 2.75% and brought it up to my boss and he said “that’s what everyone is getting as raises are based on market, not inflation, and your salary is within market range”. I have a skip level meeting with the CFO tomorrow and want to mention it’s the smallest raise I’ve ever gotten or some other comment to bring it to his attention. How do I phrase that in a professional manner?
