Burnt out...brain dead... Really think that these firms should try staff themselves better and not use a just-in-time system of getting only as much staff as needed cuz once things like Covid etc happen, losing team members and the like leaves those left behind feeling really spread thin, and then that makes them want to leave, and then the cycle just continues...

That’s the model that has been in place for a while. The more people are hired the less money partners make.

Feeling underpaid for the work I’m producing and taking on. I recognize agencies notoriously under pay lower level employees, but I feel at this point I’m worth so much more. For context I have 2.5 years experience, in an AC role. To my knowledge we still aren’t passing out promotion and pay raises (ya know, COVID and all). Any advice? Do I start shopping around for a new spot?

Audit Partners — Do you see longterm profitability of audit in general? Is it going to be worth being a partner, financially, given the risk you take on, in 10-15 years? With audit bids increasingly being driven way down by competition, & lower level resources demanding (much) higher pay than it was historically, I’m not convinced the partner track is still as enticing as it was pre-Covid. Seems like the job market/higher staff pay alone has GOT to be taking a huge cut into partner pay.
