Is it bad that I don’t care about getting to know the other people in my practice? I am in a small group based primarily in a different office, with completely different projects, but we share a floor and certain events because we are technically all in the same practice. I have no interest in the work the other groups do and frankly don’t understand why we are grouped together.

I don’t network in my practice. Don’t want to be in it. Don’t plan on staying at the firm/practice past promotion

I feel you OP and sometimes I hate not networking knowing it might not always benefit yourself (even my own practice), but you should try your best if you’re thrown into a certain situation where you might be able to connect with others...never know when you might need the connection

Does anyone just find it…really difficult to work when you hate what you do?? I’m a first year in corporate and I’ve started saying no to work even though my hours are low just because I can’t stand it. Everyone around me acknowledges that the job sucks but seems to push through it and so I’m probably just a weak baby. Im also actively applying to other jobs that I want to do more, but after being reasonably successful up until this point it’s throwing me for a loop that I can’t buckle down

Currently in a niche area of indirect tax at EY and looking to get a broader accounting experience. I’ve been interviewing in industry but most places aren’t fond of taking me due to the niche experience. I have a small 10 person office that seems very interested and does interesting work. I’m scared of jumping to something so small. Similar pay and benefits as EY, and nearby (EY is far). What would y’all do? I can’t decide.
