I would just be honest with your director on how you are feeling, and talk through your concerns. I had a very candid conversation with my Partner recently in a similar situation and it helped calm the nerves about making mistakes, and they now know the full situation from my perspective. Change won’t happen overnight in terms of getting extra staff, etc but it doesn’t sound like you have a ton to lose, and if they brush you off or get critical then going above them to a partner or reaching out to HR for advice would be the next step.. though Hr typically is not very helpful

This!! It may be awkward and uncomfortable but something’s gotta give here.

correspondence, contacting specialist in the firm, preparing proposals, looking at engagement letters, managing 15 different small engagements, and etc. Also from this year, he/she wants me to do billing as well. With all these things, I’m making mistakes that my director isn’t catching. I’m loosing confidence and I don’t know what to do. I’ve only been at this job for five months. Also I don’t have anyone to talk to at the firm cause I started remotely and my teams so small.

It can be any firm bruh

Reading thru it i figured you are in a small team. Have you reached out to managers in a different service line within the same office to see if they have two cents on what you should be doing?

It seems like you don’t work for big 4. I understand you don’t really know any managers you can talk to but at least find someone in your company (perhaps someone in the same level) and tell them your situation. Look up on skype or teams or company website to find your peers. You can also ask your HR person. Don’t feel you’re stuck coz this is not an uncommon issue at workplace

Sounds like state compliance

Here's the situation. I'm a freelance accountant. I have several part time clients, and one main 30-40/hr/week client. This is about the big one. The company has two co-presidents, but for the sake of clarity I'll call the person I directly report to the COO and the other the CEO - note the CEO also is the founder of the company. Again, I report to the COO. The COO is "working" in exchange for greater equity in the company and a crap ton of pay along the way. Cont.
