Senior, pregnant and worried about busy season because half the seniors in my practice quit in the past two months. Directors have said to seniors “brace yourself”. I am already stressed and high risk and off my ADHD meds and struggling a lot to get work done. Is it worth taking maternity leave early and “screwing over” my teams? I feel guilty. Doctor suggested to take medical leave if I am struggling. Need advice 😢

What are peoples opinions on work from home? It seems to be an unpopular opinion but as a junior I despise it. I work 3 feet from my bed, I find the barriers of a phone/email between me and a senior to add a huge amount of stress to my life and I think it’s stunting my career development at my firm because I can’t build relationships as effectively. I’ve never at all had mental health issues before but now am really starting to feel burnt out and anxious most of the time. What do you think?

So much anxiety about going full-time with Deloitte soon. I am interning with Deloitte now and I still have so much anxiety. Like I’m not doing enough even though I’m also doing school full-time. I keep reading awful things about how the culture is cutthroat and to “suck up” to managers but I’m not even sure how to do that? I’m just stressed I’m not doing enough.

Recently got an offer in LCOL/MCOL for a senior tax accountant role for 87k. 3 years of public experience and have been in industry for almost a year. Current job pays about 5k more, but is a bit of a rarity in my city. New job’s team and culture are more appealing to me. Is the offer reasonable or should I try to negotiate? I’ve never negotiated before so I’m scared they might pull the offer. Thanks!
Put on a project just because I'm a POC and it connects to the work. I want to do a hard pass but fear of repercussions. 100% feel like the token (look we care and have a person that match you & this aesthetic) POC. It just doesn't sit well with me on how it was tossed my way nor feel comfortable to do it.
