I’m interested in applying to an industry role, but I searched the company and it turns out that it is a holding company of my main audit client. I have never seen the name in any of the work I’ve done. I’m at the associate level for more context. Is this an independence issue if I apply?

You can have an independence breach related to any affiliate of your client. If your client has significant influence of an entity, they are an affiliate. Also "small" JV but disclosed directly on the FS? Probably material to the client.

Editing to add that since your not partner, nobody will prob care as long as you aren't a FROR even if you're working in their acct dept

Go read your independence policy, but you're probably not at the level where you need a cooling off period. If you're serious about the role there are probably reporting channels in HR/risk management you can reach out to yo notify or ask questions. Obviously if those aren't fruitful, you probably should approach the job partner/SM. They're never opposed to ppl leaving...that's how they keep relationships that devlop business.

Check CES if they are restricted entities. That is how you answer this question properly

@O0 You should never, ever admit this to anyone ever

What do you do with a Staff with ~1 year exp that legit won’t work. For example, you give them a simple task at 10am that should take 3 hours max, they ignore your check-in messages and then ask if they can give it you in the morning. They never ask questions. Morning comes and they still didn’t do it. When they finally do it, it is riddled with errors and clearly shows they didn’t try. Working under tight deadlines, this staff is killing me as I cannot rely on them at all. What would you do?
