I know I am weird, but I feel like being a Tax manager is becoming too comfortable for me...and it feels weird to be in a comfort zone. And now that we know our salary, I feel like I am just waiting to get promoted in a year or two. Am I just easily bored? Anyone feels this way?

Hmm can you elaborate?

Every level should feel like this after a year or two - start to take on more tasks that show you are ready for SM if you’re fine with the day to day of manager life.

I know how you feel, I love my higher level tasks ( merger planning, spearheading forensic and consulting engagements) but dread the work that I loved only a few years before. All in all, probably a good sign !

Haha. What kind of work did you love before?

Hahahaha, I know it's a strange thing to say in the Accounting world ! More specifically, I used to love problem solving, getting into the financials and uncovering why the Schedule L wasn't balancing,for example, or working with coworkers on determining whether a transition/lease should be capitalized or expensed etc. I also, at one time, loved working with and bringing new employees along. I still enjoy doing that but not nearly as much now as I once enjoyed it - in ten years I may hate it ... hahahaha.

Lol and you like what you are doing now! Which is good
