Partners won’t turn down more work despite the associate exodus. I get it. Firms are businesses. But, there will be consequences. Deadlines will be missed, things will be sloppy. PSA to associates: you’re the loser here because we are in a service profession and firms make profit off of how many hours they can squeeze out of us minus our fixed salary. Put yourself first because no one else will. To those who say it’s justified cause $$$, I say no job should require us to sacrifice our health.

It’s so hard seeing so many people make so much more money by switching to new firms. I’m making a strategic move that will probably command more comp in 3-5 years than I would have made if I hadn’t made the jump but my salary bump (25%) isn’t nearly what everyone else is getting right now because I’m basically starting over in a new area. I have serious FOMO. I *think* I did the right thing but now I’m all caught up in comparing myself! Could use some words of encouragement or advice, y’all…
So when r the comp statements coming?
Please suggest. Yoe : 5 years 10 months, Offer from HCL Technologies Designation : Technical Lead, Band :E2 CTC : 22 LPA (18 fixed) Please suggest if is it good to join HCL ? How is the hike and variable pay/bonus ? Is it paid in 100% ? And what are the perks and benefits ?
What is the bonus structure at your law firm? Associate hour requirement at my firm is 1850, for every hour over that you get your billable rate (i.e. if your rate is $200/hr you get $200 for each hour over 1850). To me this seems like its just overtime pay. Is this typical?

Anyone have a relationship with a guy who is struggling financially? Our relationship is about a year old and feeling serious but he is kind of refusing to pick a career path. And I had to loan him $550 for some car repairs. Do y’all think he’s ready to be a husband if he doesn’t have $550 in the bank or an emergency credit card? This man is 33. I am an attorney. Not a well paid one, but I got my shit together and I think he should too
Kicking off travel - anyone done any recent research on best reward cards / program etc?
I am so happy to not be grinding out 1065s, K1s, or 1120- RICs anymore . This role I’m talking to cpa firms about outsourcing work, tax software companies, mapping data, educating client representatives about tax issues, I’m making 30% more , less hours. Someone change my mind here with work being outsourced to India and automated - is the accounting profession about to change ? Especially public accounting ? I hated getting back some review points on returns .

Accepted an offer and my start date is mid October. I asked about background check results and if they were going to send me an email once everything was cleared. I was told they don’t do that. How am I supposed when to put my 2 weeks notice ? I wanted to take some time off between jobs but I want to have everything cleared before doing so.
