As independence is heavily scrutinized in audit (and tax/advisory), what types of sidegigs have you seen Big4 firms approve? KPMG uses an example of “teaching a fitness class” in the annual independence confirmation as to what all requires approval (basically any and everything). I’ve dabbled in wedding planning. Is this likely to be approved? Exactly what all information does the firm ask you when you’re seeking approval for a side gig?

From what I’ve heard, as long as you’re not offering services that compete with your firm you’ll be okay.

I'd say it's likely to be approved. I'd just put in the request. Everything has to be approved

How are you all using calculators with class? What grade level do they become standard use? What are model/brand you using? Do you teach to do by hand first or the calculator first?

I will answer... standard starts at 8th grade pre algebra, we use TI 84s and I try to teach by hand first but then quick move to the calculators to help back up their answer.

How much are other AGMs getting paid in fine dining?

I’m a senior with dreams of going in-house. The maternity leave at the firm is great so the plan was to have a kid before I leave, but of course we’re struggling to conceive.

I guess I just feel like I should be gone, but I’m not, and it’s really hard I’m struggling with depression and burn out and going off birth control didn’t help. (cont)
