I'm a first year and this is what I expect from my senior.
1. Be there for the staff.
2. Teach the staff.
3. Make sure your staff is comfortable to share their difficulties.
4. Be cool
5. Support your staff and represent them

like

Senior here - I agree with EY2. Manage your manager. Have good project management skills. Let them know when to expect deliverables, raise issues quickly (like within minutes). Don't be afraid to let them know you don't know something or if you're struggling. As for your staff/associates. Be relatable/personable in order to create a healthy environment. That way questions/issues will get filtered to you quicker. Don't treat them like they're dumb. Take the time to coach even if it sets your own work back - it'll pay dividends later on. Remember you were in there shoes too!

Most of the job is managing your manager and making sure to develop staff so you can properly delegate

And don't forget that staff are often only 1-2 years younger than you so don't go on a power trip.

I’ve listened recently to several conversations about quality of work product issues during WFH. Some people say they have not given feedback (giving someone a pass) because of the need to be kinder and be mindful of personal challenges (childcare etc) and then I read an article/study about how lack of constructive feedback for women is hurting women’s advancement and how important feedback is for develo. I see both sides. Have you changed whether/how you provide feedback?

How much do you truly feel you need to live in NY with the lifestyle that you want without overdoing it. As an accountant I feel like $115-$145k a year then having a partner making the same or less is more than enough.

Say we do an conference event and sell tickets that include meals for the attendees. Is that meal (as part of the ticket) a COGS or the like? Would that count as a supply item?

My thought is that while it’s a meal for someone it’s not a meal for those doing the acts of business/business expense.

This would be under a non-profit.
