Does anyone have input as to how most designers or graphic designers are doing during this pandemic? Since January 2020, I became laid off from my job working full-time and remotely for a Southwest Florida urologist that I worked for about 10 years. no it seemed I was going to get my job back around July of last year, he decided to create a partnership with an oncologist who had his own marketing team. Because of the partnership, it looks like I can only work freelance for them now.

I’m having a sit down with my creative directors next week, they have some concerns. I’ve been doing well with my radio and tv assignments but not as well with my collateral and email assignments. I’m having trouble adopting the already established voice of the latter but the tv and radio work I get to create my own voice for each project. Any advice on how to plead my case of having some degree of difficulty and not intentional doing bad work?
What is a "good enough" reason to reach out to a partner at your firm? There is a partner at my firm in a completely different practice who comes from the same hometown as me (think ~5k population). I'm interested in hearing about his journey, but I don't want to do the type of work he does. Is it worth it for me to reach out?

KPMG folks. I see the mobile expense reimbursement is $65 with an equipment. Is there a breakout between wireless service and equipment or it’s looked at in total? If I’m on a family plan and pay $20, can I get a phone that costs $45 so as to maximize the $65 reimbursement? Thoughts appreciated
Comp Help - Meta IC5 Offer for Privacy Program Manager
YOE: 10 (not directly privacy related, but relevant for the role)
Market: Bay Area
I feel like the base is quite low, and lower than the base salary range that I communicated to the recruiter. I'd like to counter to 195K and hope they'll meet me at 190K at least. Is that reasonable and any tips for what I can use as negotiation leverage, since I don't have another job offer at the moment?

Yeah that seems to be the consensus. That or go for a smaller public accounting role. Fund accounting does seem to be too niche.
I did a bit of fund accounting for PE funds. My advice is to avoid administrators at all costs, and not to go into it if you don’t want to pigeonholed. It is challenging work and can be lucrative, but your exit opportunities could be limited to other fund accounting roles.
Fund Administrator work is the less desirable position when it comes to fund accounting. I previously worked at SEI who runs a fairly large fund admin practice. The pay is typically lower, the work a little tedious, and from my experience it was a revolving door fraught with turnover. I personally left because if I stayed long enough my exit ops would be actual PE firms and I desired a more traditional Corp accounting role. The work itself mainly consists of running reports and booking entries for deals, preparing PCAPs, and managing LOC, among other things. If you are determined, try to get a job at an actual firm.
Sooo I was in private equity fund administration right out of college. Fairly large fund administrator- the hours were rough but exit opportunities were solid. Lots of people from that group got on at an actual PE firm.
I went back to grad school and received a MS in taxation
While in grad school I moved internally out of fund admin to the tax department
Won’t lie like the only PA jobs I can get are within the investment industry. I’m def burned out and going back to doing talk at a bank 🏦
I guess to avoid being “stuck” keep at it with degrees,credentials ect outside of work. Work for a big enough company you have the option to move internally or at least network internally
