I think you found a slip up lol. There’s been a lot of people out there trying to do literally 2 jobs from separate companies in the hope that they won’t find out

False alarm! I assumed this person was a contractor with my company, guess this person is not based on a quick channel search!

funny

Umm no

No but I’m sure some of them do. We don’t pay them a lot.

Were they a contractor or a full-time employee?

I hope that's it but even that is bizarre...

Do share the details

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
