I don't understand how anyone can get excited for this job. We're doing glorified government compliance work that we put our blood, sweat, and tears into a file that no one (fucking no one!) outside of the firm and maybe PCAOB will ever see much less give a fuck about.


Come to EY :)


Same. After 2 months of job searching still can't find anything that would suck less than my current job


All good questions and comments - just looking for that right job where I can work 2-3 days a week and rest the rest, and get paid well!


Different office, different industry, CMAAS??? You sure you looked everywhere?

CMAAS too much travel and long hours depending on a project, industry doesn't provide for flexibility and could be boring and I can't think of a hobby that pays well either

Move west (just stop before Cali)

Have you considered Advisory/Consulting shops? There's a bunch of companies that provide accounting related consulting. Things like technical accounting/IPO readiness/SOX/etc... How many years do you have in public OP? If you're seeing a lack of opportunities it could be that you need to move to a larger market or wait it out until you've got more years under your belt.

Maybe you are looking for fulfillment in the wrong place? Sometimes pumping up your none work life is the answer, just a thought... Good luck

Kpmg 1 there are a lot of other useless jobs, at least we get paid and deal with smart people

Life feels like just one roadblock after another. It’s been this way for the past decade and I’m just 28. :(
I can’t even manage to get my last name fixed at the ssa coz it’s too long for their system. And I need it fixed for other stuff tied to it. I know this sounds like a petty issue, but stuff has been adding up for a while. If my life doesn’t get better in another decade I’m going to be a monk. That’s the max amount of patience I’ve left for the affairs of the world.
