I'm really struggling with focus & could use some coping tips, if anyone has some. I live alone & am hundreds of miles from my family. I've been in isolation for months (My firm is still doing 100% WFH). Everything feels so overwhelming and coping with being lonely and being sad is getting harder and harder. I'm coming up on a crazy Q4. I'm low on hours for the yr so I need to go all-in on work for the next 2 months, but I'm not sure how to make it happen. Any recommendations?

I recently started a new job and it in no way is panning out as it was made out to seem when I started and there are lots of red flags I’m just tolerating right now… for example, even pto and remote work is not as discussed from the onset. Is it too soon to start looking for something new? How does one go about explaining why you’d leave so soon to a potential new employer?

Should I go to Booz Allen as an “Associate” for about 50% more pay? I’m a SA at 70k.. Worst part is that I must move 3 hours away and must be on client site at all times, while KPMG is super flexible and I wfh all the time even before Covid. Also, I feel like “branding” wise it might be a downgrade. What is the KPMG equivalent to Associate at Booz? What is the typical YoE for Booz Associates? Any Booz/ex-Booz folks on here to help give direction?

I want to understand why was Arthur Anderson kicked out of the audit business. I know they played a major part in the Enron scandal. But still these days we are seeing scandals happening. Someday we see EY name popping (Wirecard) KPMG or some other Big 4 but we still hold a strong position in the market. Then why didn't Arthur Anderson in accounting and audit business especially what I have learnt that it was largest among the big 5 at that time?

Perspective: monogamy is anti-human nature; in this era where each parent could raise a kid independently, marriage tends to be a shackle on many aspects of life. We live once, why does society expect us to live with 1 person for 60+ years? No wonder divorce rates are through the roof!
