Hey y’all! So my team just hired a direct report for me. They’re joining as an AE (they have internship experience and we’re an AAE for 9mos).
While I’ve always had levels under me who I’ve helped manage, train and oversee - I’ve never had a direct report. Someone who’s development is my responsibility.
Any advice on how to be amazing for my AE?

As an accounting major graduating in the fall, I am thinking about my career path and wondering how I should proceed. I don’t know if I want to do tax or audit yet. I did a tax internship at a midsize well known company last semester and will be doing an audit internship this fall with the same company. Is starting out at a smaller public company okay or should I go for the B4 and then move on in a couple years? I want a good WLB but I know with this career it will be tough to find.

Hello fellow moms. I have a 13 month old who is the light of my husband and I lives. He literally makes everything so fun and seeing him after work every day is the highlight of our days. We have talked a little bit about having another, and I’m just so torn. I love our tot more than anything and I cannot imagine life without him. However, it is exhausting with both of us working full time. We basically are both going non stop from 6:00AM-8:00PM. Our house is not clean like it used to be… contd.

A new hire was brought onto my project. I'm responsible for training this person but they have very limited knowledge in SQL and no Tableau or Python experience. They don't have an understanding of relational databases and poor attention to detail. All of these skills are required to do the job. They keep making basic mistakes. I believe they lyed on their resume. At what point is teaching this individual the fundamentals too much? Has anyone been in this situation before?
Has anyone ever been a contractor for any of the big 4? Just curious what the experience was like. I'm looking for more flexibility so was looking at this option.
