Deal closes, your client buys/sells the company you did DD on and it hits the news online. Are you annoyed if the partner doesn’t say anything about it after weeks/months or hard work? Or could you not care less?

On to the next deal. It’s not your deal. You’re just a vendor unfortunately.

No. Who cares.

Idk I would at least expect the partner to mention it while he/she is personally giving me a post-close foot massage

funnylikesmart

No, no one cares. I'm in it for the paycheck, who cares if something ends up the news that I did not influence in the slightest besides maybe some overly rosey BS projection they give to lenders

Don’t really care

Depends on the deal. I’ve had major projects that involved celebratory trips out to the client for blowout dinners / events. I’ve had small deals that no one really cares about where not much if anything was said. Things are busy, don’t take it personally

I don’t care..

Struggling with JE’s for earnouts paid post-acquisition. Amounts were paid out to former owners in a prior period. I think the entry was Dr. accrued expense; Cr. Cash. Now it’s sitting in accrued exp, so I asked why and the client says it was wrong and is reclassing now by Dr. Investment in Sub; Cr. Accrued Exp. (Investment in sub rolls up into current liability.) Does this make sense? I’m so confused about what this should be.

You CAN be that leader that people want to work with. 1st, self assessment is required. Be honest: As a leader,have you engaged in/accepted Attribution Bias with a dash of gender &/or race bias?

Be on the lookout for Attribution Bias in yourself & on your team. It's a hindrance to creating a high-performing, inclusive culture.
