Yes...when you work in public accounting even if you're a secretary or admin, you have to follow independence protocols. Even if FDD was housed in a separate legal entity, you're still considered one for independence purposes.

What location and pay were you given?

The rules kick in once you are a manager. You can’t own stocks of an audit client of the office you are employed in. So unless you work for the same office that audits Tesla, you’re good.

In a predicament need some thoughts: I’m getting offered a new role (not a promotion, just a new role within my project) that has more lead level responsibilities.

Now, this is coming at an interesting time when I was already looking to transition to a new company - an immediate transition will get me a quicker salary bump that I would otherwise have to wait a bit to get at my current company

Hi moms .. has anyone spent your Mat leave alone with your new born ? SO doesn’t have much leave and I am worried whether it will be too much to be alone with a baby all day and I am a FTM to be .

I, a childless woman who does not plan to have kids, am jealous of the parental leave parents get to take from work from choosing to have a child (a big life event). I 100% understand that they are working in a different way by taking care of the baby and being deliriously worn out in the process, but it makes me sort of jealous that unless I have a kid there is no life event that I can take ~3 months away from work to focus on and enjoy, plus have my hours prorated and a job to come back to.

I have enjoyed my time in consulting and feel fortunate to have made good money during my time here. I no longer have a desire for wealth accumulation as I feel like it makes me do things I am not interested in at all - leading to unhappiness. As I look to exit, what are some blue collar jobs out there where you can go to work, come home and truly leave it at work? I don’t need to make a ton of money, as long as I have benefits for my family I will be good.

I left my last job because I was on-call 24/7. Now I’m 24/7 again but due to billable requirements. I have no hobbies, no free time, and only spend about an hour/day with my kids. Not sure I want this life. At least I had insane PTO for govt work.
