Has anyone felt more pressure to be "perfect" at work during this pandemic? My supervisor is acting like I'm not doing enough with this one project and we even have vendors helping with it...

I think it's natural to feel like that during this pandemic. It's an unprecedented event which means you shouldn't know how to feel/act during this. I felt the same way when this all began and there was nothing but uncertainty in everyone's personal/professional life. Just keep your head down, keep working hard, stay the course and everything will fall into place.

This was a very kind response and I appreciate it. Stay safe out there!

Hi All- no question, but just sharing a (potentially very obvious) tip that has been working for my anxiety: cutting back on drinking a lot.

My project has slowed down over the last few months and with the pandemic and everything it’s been easy to have a few drinks every night and then a few more on weekends. My anxiety went through the roof over that time period, in large part due to different life factors.

But after taking a week off from drinking at all, I’ve been in a much better headspaxe

Help me understand how keeping track of hours relate to what is actually billed to the client when we are preparing tax returns faster with “auto flow” or “sure prep”? Am I mistaken that we still charge what a tax return is “worth” regardless of how quick we prepare it? Seems like keeping track of hours is just a way to keep us busy, and the reward for finishing under budget is just more work at the hopes of a “bigger” raise.

This tax season is so terrible. I worked 75 hours last week and still have 4 business returns that have not completed yet. Client end has terrible turnover this year and sent us the PBC very late. Staff and senior keep complaining that they cannot finish before deadline. More ironically, while we are working our ass off, partners are enjoying their conference in FL last week. How “good” is that.

Hello marketing ladies!

I'm currently a demand gen director - this specific marketing director role will overlook product, content, digital and all things to drive pipeline.

Some of the bits in the case study seem interesting - eg.. increase 3x deal size when the goal is to grow 60% YoY (ideally 100% YoY). Also around the point around what the marketing budget should be..

Thanking you!

As an account exec, I'm the producer. I was really lucky for a few years to have a director who helped with every aspect of the shoot - budgeting, scheduling, shot list, even manual labor! That director is no longer with our agency, and our new director is very hands-off.

I'm trying to understand if I was just spoiled with our past director, or if our new director is lazy... or if it's a mixture of both.

Thanks in advance!
