Yes. 6 months is a long time and projects seem shorter and shorter these days. May be different in GPS where they are longer.

I am in public accounting and I got pulled into the Audit department to help out.

The problem now is I've completed my work and I am still not billing as I had hoped. I was informed there's plenty of work, but not seeing it. Am I missing something here? I haven't been informed I am not doing my job properly.

Would love to see a story on how much Activision CEO Bobby Kotick, 59,has made since he and partners bought Activision out of bankruptcy in 1991 for $400k. He now owns 0.53% so at $95 a share that Microsoft is paying, that alone is $400 mil. But in 2020 alone his pay package was valued at 154 million (some of this is overlapping in his stake)!! Would be fun media story to add up his 1991-2022 comp to the $400 mil to see his total return from what was a fraction of $400k investment 30 years ago.
