You should just be having your exit interview and return equipment. Maybe a last free lunch if some manager likes you.

Okay guys thanks for the advice. I was asking as I got a lot of new work dumped on my desk today with deadline being this coming Tuesday so I wasn't sure if I should try to start and try to finish it or just hand it back to the manager who gave it.

^^no because it's an "if"

You should be working a 12 hour day, getting all your client work done.

You should not be working at all. It's solely for pack up purposes

Lol. Do they know its your last day?

Yeah they did. Both HR and I sent a firm wide email, which is why I was surprised about even getting the work in the first place. 🙄

Is it okay I log off when I was told to? Just started I January and it’s my first busy season. By hearing and saw all the stories that people are working super long hours made me quite worried as I was told I could leave at 6 pretty much everyday. I did finish what was assigned to me but seeing all the AM and managers staying online till super late made me stressed. Should I ask more to do or is it normal for a first year audit? I was also preparing my ACA exams.
