I worked for a Fortune 500 and the tax director who signed off on the provision never earned his CPA.

It’s not uncommon in industry. It’s not like the CPA exam really tests/proves your ASC 740 skills, anyway.

Yes, we have a senior manager have no CPA

Nope, the boss believe in him so cpa was not a issue

Yes, but it’s the exception not the norm

Many of us are trapped in positions that are not in alignment with our values and work abilities. Much like using "superman" to drive a vehicle and deliver mail. You not allowed to fly, use your xray vision or strength. We are confined to live in square box when we are so much more than the shape of the box. I'm not saying quit your job. But atleast explore what makes your tick: what excites you and where you excel.

Got an offer from one of the big 4


My background check came back with a discrepancy in graduation dates. I noted May 2009 but it was actually December 2009. They asked for an explanation which I provided - an honest mistake, it’s been a while I don’t remember the month in which I graduated.
Is this a reason for concern?

I get the feeling that there are some advisory managers that blatantly book every staff member in their office for “just one hour” on “very quick tasks” than blatantly and intentionally immediately dump 20-30 hours of work onto them, so they can get ahead in the musical chairs of finding staff. All to the adverse effect of the practice, staff, and other teams. There’s some people that consistently do this weekly. Kind of unethical.
