Is it normal for you to ever be “ghosted” by your administration? I feel like I’m constantly emailing, calling, texting, and meeting with them and nothing gets done. As soon as I leave their office, I’m ignored. If I email/text them a question or request, I’m ignored unless it benefits them. This is at a district where I travel between 3 schools and have 3 principals. They’re all like this and communication is especially important since I have to travel.

Do you think smaller public accounting firms would pay someone with manager/director big 4 experience to come in as an outside coach/consultant to coach and mentor their seniors and associates? Maybe if the pay structure was conditional to only if the consultant could improve retention rates or some other metric? Thanks!
Does anyone know if the salaries posted for internal vacancies include bonus and/or car allowance or are they just the base salary?

Does anyone have any insight to the prospective salary of a senior marketing science analyst at PHD media? Gauging to see if it's worth staying after a promotion vs looking elsewhere.
If you had a great candidate but the only thing "off" was his "background" would you hire him? I have two candidates to choose form and I really like one of them but he has neck tattoos and is "different" than the rest of the team. I think he had a rough past but he's doing great things in his career now. Still, I'm worried he might not "fit in" with the rest of the team. Thoughts? Anyone experience this?

Recruiter that I talked to a little bit a few months ago but never ended up applying through (I didn’t apply anywhere) just reached back out to gauge interest. I said only if he can find me something remote. No response since. Well well well, I guess the ghoster has become the ghostee 🤷🏻♀️

Firm just required us to get a booster shots (presumably even to WFH). Advice on whether it’s worth stirring the pot and trying to avoid compliance? I’m vaccinated, but honestly just don’t want to get a shot every quarter, which is what the progression is looking like.
If they cited a 50% bonus (~75 K) verbally but the offer letter does not have the amount or % listed, is that standard? Language is “bonus is discretionary subject to company” etc.)
Insurance Defense Associates: Why not unionize? A lot of people are complaining about very low salaries and high billable requirements. This is a product of low rates and stringent billing requirements imposed by insurance carriers. Unionization at a few large shops like Wilson Elser and Lewis Brisbois can single-handedly turn the entire ID industry around. A rising tide lifts all boats.
Fav holiday recipes? ( pref vegetarian)? :)
I’ve got a manager who runs a tight ship: 12 hour days (not busy szn) regularly, no sick days, no company-sponsored events, etc. Mgr makes it miserable. How would you deal with this?
