Asking for a friend.. Say you left an audit firm and entirely by chance you ended up working for an audit client's company (a Big 4 firm in this case), but for a different audit team. Is there anything you need to worry about for independence rules?
Does anyone have narcolepsy? Any tips on how you’ve managed it? I have had it (undiagnosed) for years and have bee putting up with it. Fell asleep in classes, while driving longer than 30 min, and in an instant. I fell asleep in a client meeting, when I was one of the lead presenters, the other day, and was super embarrassed. Is it worth getting officially diagnosed? There doesn’t apper to be any good treatments. 😞

Started a new project a few weeks ago. It was very high burn at the start but I thought that would subside over time. It hasn't. I find myself crying sporadically through the day to get through it, and almost every night before I go to sleep (sometimes at 2,3 am). I have 153 days till I can roll off and idk how I'm going to manage. Anyone gone through this before?
Both client & some on my team speak Hindi. They have held business convo switching between the two and I have said I can't follow. They continue to do this? Should I ask to be rolled off the project?
A male colleague of mine, who just joined the team this week, has made inappropriate advancements towards me during a team event, touching my leg while talking to me and saying how pretty I am. Worst thing is he’s joining my project too… It’s a no brainer that this is unacceptable, but it’s the first time this happened to me in a work setting and I’m unsure how to handle it. What steps should I take first? Report to HR immediately or speak to my team’s partner first? Any advice is appreciated
What’s the difference in severity between messing up enough to get rolled off a project and enough to be put on a performance improvement plan?
Project required corporate apt so I had one for a year .. thought I missed the points. Now I'm back to hotels and miss the corporate apt. Always want what you can't have 🙄
Need tips for managing sanity with a client dominating your life. Tell yourself it can't last forever? Set boundaries (how?!?)? I love my job, teams, etc. But this client drives me to job search.

Anyone can share insights on what is the average salary raise and bonus at Grant Thornton and Moody's investors service? Also, what should be the salary expectation range for a 6+ YOE, MBA, CFA ,FRM for New York Location in the financial services industry?
Why do previous generations feel the need to belittle the hard work of younger people? My parents always insist they used to put in as many hours as I do when they were my age, but I know it’s not true because I was actually old enough to remember it! (They could afford having a kid. I can’t)
Freelance to full time in NYC. Should annual match (or be within a few thousand) of what hourly works out to be? Yes they cover health etc but seems like more responsibilities. Hourly was mid market rate.
Feeling so low lately due to keeping up with the joneses and comparing myself. I miss being a kid when I didn’t know what status symbols were and when I didn’t care about money. I remember even as a senior in high school thinking that 70K a year seemed like a massive salary. Sometimes ignorance is bliss I suppose.
What's your go-to lesson?
I am a background check away from putting in my notice. KEEP grinding if you’re miserable and/or have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. This took a lot of ghosting and interviews+offer letters being taken off the table due to COVID. Stay humble and you’ll be next. Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.

What do y'all think of this Forbes article? I think placing more ownership in the hands of internal SME's is valid, but entirely removing consultants whom have lessons learned through the practice of numerous large transformations would be a mistake https://www.forbes.com/sites/steveandriole/2020/07/29/stand-aside-mckinsey-accenture--cap-gemini--the-case-for-internal-consulting-for-digital-transformation/amp/
