Have you had to change your start date after accepting an offer and how did it go? I told them I need to give 30 day notice and so I set my start date (incorrectly) assuming the background check and drug screen would take a few days to clear. However, the drug screen is now taking over a week and a half (still not finished, maybe tomorrow). Apparently things are much slower due to staffing issues and labs are backed up. It’s cutting into my 30 day notice significantly. Thoughts?

Post-COVID fishies: How long did it take until you felt back to your normal selves? Are you not quite there yet? It’s been just over a month since I tested positive and although the worst symptoms are gone, I’m so tired all the time. Everything exhausts me: laundry, walks (especially in the cold), all the back-to-back zoom calls… I can sleep for 12 hours, it’s insane. Just hoping to hear from others!
My manager (female) stretched her legs during a 1:1 meeting and wrapped her legs around what she thought was a table leg. Turned out it was actually my ankle. I was shocked and didn’t know how to react, and before I knew it, it had been too long to awkwardly tell her. So I sat perfectly still the entire meeting. She never found out and I never spoke about it to her.

So I recently accepted a position to become director at another healthcare organization in my area. I’ve been at my current job 4 years. Any suggestions on the resignation letter? I don’t want to share too much but I report to the head of my hospital and have mixed feelings on what to share.
My mat leave ends next month and I am absolutely dreading it. I’m fortunate that my baby is easy going and sleeping well so my time with her has been great. I’ve been getting bad anxiety thinking about returning to work. I’ve seen women post about how they couldn’t wait to go back to work so I feel strange that I’m not like that. Anyone else been through this?

I work a midsize regional firm and, no surprise, we are hemorrhaging staff. And it’s the good ones leaving. Some for family offices and industry positions, which I can understand. But others for smaller accounting firms as staff and seniors which just seems like a career killer to me. I’m convinced we need to do retention bonuses, raises, and recruit new talent by paying above market. Of course I’m a younger partner and don’t have the pull to actually make this happen. Thoughts?
I started a firm with three other colleagues about a year and a half ago. We all came from the same bigger firm and now obviously we are considered a very small. We want to make our first hire and hire someone for around $100,000 as a manager to manage around $200,000 of work. They came back at $120,000. After taxes and benefits that’s $150k to manage and prepare $200k of work. Anyone own a smaller firm who can share opinion? How much work should one manage for that kind of salary?

Where are all the accounting professionals going? Competitive pay and benefits aren’t enticing enough. People want work/life balance but how can firms provide that when the workforce supply is so low yet demand is at an all-time high. If technology is the answer are there firms that are successfully implementing solutions?

Will auditing eventually be conducted electronically using AI? What does the future hold?
Any firms that use CCH make sure your invoices are being checked carefully. We just reviewed ours and were over-billed the last 2 years. We were supposed to have discounts and the math wasn’t even correct across for the amount times the discount to the amount billed. The worst part is our rep then gave a bullshit story of how the list price was incorrect on the invoice but the amount billed was correct.

An ED that is called an “associate partner” (or now I think sometimes just partner) outside the US? I doubt they get anything - only equity owners will get a payout.
