Snapshots are important in determining promotions and bonuses, and we are not solely metric driven. We consider things like client satisfaction, subject matter expertise and ability to lead, manage and develop people.

ATK2, UMMM that doesn't even really work. PwC doesn't "sponsor the Oscars," the Academy is one of their clients. And, despite the one flub, they retained the Academy as a client. Amazing what almost a century of good client service, and consistent performance will do in the face of one year of controversy...

Arthur McKinsey, the first consultant, declared that only the colors blue and black were appropriate for consultancies. Codified into law in 1926, no firm could use another color in their collateral until Deloitte sued in 1995, stating first amendment concerns. Green was then introduced to the palate though many firms maintain the historic standard.

Under the Lausanne Treaty of 1931 registered consultants were allowed to pass through all borders regardless of the diplomatic status of their home countries. This tradition is carried over in many countries to this day where simply showing your badge allows you to skip customs and eliminates the need to purchase a visa.

I need your help: please advise me on where (in terms of schedule) to report my long-term sale of a partnership rental building for which I get a K-1. I don’t believe this has been on schedule C in years past. Where does it go in my income? Is reporting the numbers in the K-1 all I need to do? Thank you in advance.

Joined the firm as a sc after leaving another big 4 due to projects of x nature.

Thought d was doing interesting stuff and even specified in the interview that I didn’t enjoy x and that was why I was leaving. Have just started and the first project they put me on is x.

They have other projects and am happy to do anything other than this type of project. It’s needlessly and painstaking replicated, begs for automation and drains the life out of me.

How do I raise this with them? Should I?
