If you have an opportunity to go work with someone who used to be your boss in a previous job life, would you? I’m in a similar situation where I saw a position posted at the company she is at currently and I reached out to her about it.

Now more than ever discern who is speaking blessings into your life vs sputtering negative beliefs to take hold and manifest in your reality. Don’t allow those who are seeking to manipulate you to get you in a position where you’re performing mental gymnastics to justify having them in your life. You know who you are and how to stand in your truth without anyone else telling you how you are and what is true.

Happy Monday 🤗

For referrals. Does it matter:

The seniority of the person referring? (IE: Is it better to get referred from a manager than an associate?)

The tenure of the person referring? (IE: is it better to get a referral from someone who has been there six years instead of six months?)

The position of the person referring my? (IE: if I applied for an analyst job with the marketing department, does it mean more if I get a referral from somebody in that department vs say a software engineer?)

Hello fellow fishes,

So I am working in a technical role for around 1 and half year at USI.
Work is flexible, hours are good.

But I am the kind of person who codes for work, not as an interest.
And after 1 year, I am getting overwhelmed, with the amount of technical stuff I NEED to learn to stay relevant in the project. Should i think of switching career paths, like maybe an MBA? (I am able to be technical, but not deeply technical like a pro coder)

I am so tired of Deloitte allowing bias towards MDs. Only because you are not an equity partner, your voice is automatically muted, you can contribute but you don’t get to decide. The minute a senior manager gets promoted to a principal, he gets on top of an MD with 15+ years experience and treats you like he is your boss. I mean this is a cast system at its best! I can’t wait to leave this firm, COVID can’t end fast enough.

Hi. A bit new to audit and have a question on a report's opinion.
I came across a somewhat old auditor report (from a very small auditing firm) that listed several instances where employees misappropriated assets within its schedule of findings, yet the opinion was unmodified. Is this fine? I would think it'd affect the opinion not knowing everything that was misappropriated. Could it be that the auditor felt comfortable enough on how much they identified and that lowered the risk?

What do you do with a senior manager who seemed lost all the time? Granted he is new in the engagement - we both are. We talked through things a couple of times but he does not seem to understand it and keeps on asking about the same things. Does not know what is happening on the file or does not seem to care to learn about it. Would only know about things that come through his emails, and would only care where things are at when we are reporting to the partner.
