Former auditor here-I echo the internal positions. There are a lot of functions within PA that are not 100% client serving and/or can be business support. Look at internal job postings and ask around on teams that have non-client facing work to see what’s out there

Stop talking about how busy and frantic you are with work on a holiday week. It’s not a badge of honor, and I’m not impressed. There are only two reasons why you’re busy:
1. You suck at planning.
2. You don’t know how to set boundaries.
3. You don’t care enough about your direct reports to set boundaries so that they can relax this week.
