I really don't have time to take my CPA exam coming up. Going to lose one in the next couple of months. Client work is extremely demanding and yes I've talked to manager but the work is still there.

Pwc1, be pissed if he or she delegates down. If it is able to be delegated to a staff, the senior really shouldn't be doing it to begin with no matter the reason because that is not efficient use of resources or the budget

I think in that situation, taking pto to pound out an exam might be helpful. Like around the holidays so you get close to 2 weeks with only one week of pto used. Not the best situation but it sure beats enjoying the holiday's now and being the S3 that hasn't finished their exams

These responses really don’t help... my advice, commit at least 5 hours of studying on days you work and spend a majority of your weekend (8-10 hours Sat/Sun each)

That is ~41-45 hours a week of study time. If you absolutely cannot do that, I would also advise on taking PTO. Trust me, the exam is not as bad as ppl always make it out to be, it is just a huge commitment.

As long as you work at it you will get it. Try and delegate tasks to staff as much as possible.

Suck it up, buttercup. Why didn't you take them whilst you were an associate? You know, over the last 30 freaking months? Or you know, during grad school or undergrad, depending on your state? No excuses.

Oh, and btw, def not a morning person. Used to roll into work ~10...

I literally did nothing but study every spare waking minute for 4 months straight and passed all on the first try in two testing windows. It's completely doable. There are no excuses.

I work at a boutique consultancy, usually with strategy questions directly with C-level managers. This time they have asked us to take on a more operative role as a product manager. I have been selected, and as there seems to be a lot of experienced managers here, I come to you for advice. What are some important tips & things to consider now that I am about to step into this role at a company where I mostly know one c-level manager from previous work?
