I use an iPad Pro with the pencil daily. Take notes in OneNote, sign correspondence while reviewing, read new tax laws, respond to emails, etc. l do not use it to review tax returns, etc where I need more monitor space.

Not work related but i have an iPad streaming my background noise shows next to one of my monitors while I work and it is quite lovely.

I feel like only one monitor is not enough. Could imagine an ipad.

I use it for onenote but that's it

Two big ass monitors will be better than ipad but probably cost the same

Well I’m thinking about using it so I can lay on the couch while *enjoying* reading the new tax laws that they won’t stop writing

I was hired by a company that is paying me a ridiculous amount of money to do my job, but they lied to me, they lied to all of the new hires. This isn’t underwriting, this is a call center. We aren’t even allowed to answer coverage questions when the agents call. The call volume is INSANE - like 70+ calls a day. There’s no actual underwriting happening, and I don’t know what to do. The money is great, but the job is a joke. I’ve been here for 2 months and I want out. Advice?

Managers/exp. seniors who just left PA: looking for a little advice here. I’m up for manager promotion in January and want to know if it’s worth it to stay. I’m extremely burnt out and don’t know if I could put myself through another busy season, but the title and 20% bonus are very appealing. I’m definitely staying through end of Sept for my bonus payout but thinking of leaving after that. I like my industry but can’t take the long hours and weekend work anymore. Please share any advice!

I was laid off from Deloitte in July 2020 and went to a much smaller firm. People are nice and there are pros but the training is basically non-existent. After this past busy season, I worked more at this smaller firm than I did at Deloitte. If not happy with raise/promotion at my current job I will look elsewhere. Am I crazy for wanting to go back to big 4?
