Accountants would still be on physical ledgers and hard copy working papers if we had that mindset 30years ago. Also when reviewing alteryx stuff, isn’t it better to review the workflows and inputs rather than outputs?

They come from colleges totally unprepared. Dont know their accounting and JEs. Of basics of business processes. I was the same tho. But back in my days I got to spend the first few years learning basics vs now with analytics ppl need to already know all that in order to be able to do their job.

Automation staves away busy work. If you want to go old school, find a small office and go do accounting there. You can make a good living. It’s bad enough our leaders are scared of innovating we don’t need seniors to think that way too

im not saying go old school. im saying after running things through alterxy associates and seniors paste output into templates and think its 100% right. they dont know how to review provisions and allocations cuz if alterxy did it it should be right. it gets passed up without detail review and when u asked why does book income not tie to reports they be like alteryx did it so we thought its right....

I’m not sick of it, but I am annoyed when I turned in an alteryx workflow most can’t review it and if I turn a .py file in, i get very strange looks and have to redo all of it in excel.

How long to wait before letting a nanny go back to work after covid? Our nanny started feeling sick around 9 days ago. She tested positive 8 days ago. Her symptoms have been very mild (just a cough and a runny nose) and she’s been essentially symptom-free for the past 48 hours. However, I had her take a rapid test just now and she is still testing positive. My husband and I both work full time from home and it would be ideal to have her come to work tomorrow. WWYD?? Thanks fishes!

Getting sick of selling the market, watching it go my way, and then roaring back. So, I went back to revisit the daily. Could we be trading an extension long? Is that the reason why this market is going up? In Mid-June, we sold off to 2394 in ES. We can back for a 2nd test in early July but, rallied and we have rallied ever since. 3375 is the objective, 125 points away, and right at old highs. Do we have to goto old highs before a sell off? Maybe? Buy the 21 (yellow) and 51

Help me out, everyone seems to be having much milder symptoms with Omicron. Is the hospital capacity issue due to people panicking and going to the hospital despite having mild symptoms or because staff are out with illness?

In the start of busy season and my 8 month old goes to daycare 3 days a week. I feel worn down already by work & her (a single mom basically). I was looking forward to her going to daycare today because we had off and I could run errands and just have a DAY to myself.. her school was cancelled. Is it bad if I take a sick day on Wednesday just to have a mental break, alone.. I feel guilty because it’s busy season.. but I feel like I am drowning.

I’m so sick of politics and people politicizing things that don’t need to be. This is the perfect time for a new political party to come out called the “I hate politics, let’s just” party (pun intended). Instead of blue or red it’ll be colorless. It’ll just include normal f-ing people who meet in the middle to agree on things and avoid drama. People will stop posting polarizing political posts with misinformation, and just post about normal things. Illegitimate news outlets will have less fuel.

I just need to vent. I am so sick of dealing with one of my coworkers. He has been a thorn in my side since I started working at my new job. He thinks he is the boss, despite the CEO telling him he's not the boss. He wastes 90% of his time micro-managing me instead of doing his own job. He intentionally alters my work after it was finalized, without telling anyone. He lies to everybody and nobody here likes him. The CEO won't get rid of him, nobody knows why. I love my job, but can't stand him.
