Genuine question as I wanted to know is it strange for someone to want to switch to advisory from tax. Would it be difficult for someone to transition from that position? I understand that they are too completely different work but similar fields. Also wanted to know what’s the day to day basis like for advisory during covid and in general

My therapist just told me I'm depressed..do you ever feel like they tell you things you hear a lot or could have figured out on your own? Like take care of yourself, it's ok to feel such and such, etc. I'm still newer to therapy so wondering if that's the common experience? Do you ever have moments where you're like wow that actually is eye opening and I wouldn't have gotten that from reading self help books and websites etc?

Why don’t big 4 consider other was to capture productivity? Utilization is such a huge factor in big4 but capturing productivity within that is a lot harder to measure. Thoughts on big4 moving to a productivity model over hours model?

Would you rather work for an older, more established company with lots of employees, average salary and a slow climb of the ladder to leadership?

P.S. both companies are known across the globe.
