It’s interesting to me how people say things like “the week is going by fast” as if it’s a great thing. Shouldn’t we want time to go slowly? Once it’s gone you never get it back, plus we’re not guaranteed to get anymore time. If you dislike work so much you want it to go by as fast as possible it may be time to make some changes.

You’re telling me you love when work drags on and seems to last forever? I value my free time, not my work time.


Yes KPMG 1


If the week flies by it means I was in 'the zone' for a large amount of time. Either work goes well or I have constructive calls - time just goes faster when you're enjoying yourself more. If the week was a slow drag it ment I was stressed or bored.


Always thought this

They don’t understand your post . People think that we have unlimited time and we don’t. We are in the hamster wheel until we can actually disconnect. I don’t think your family will put in your grave . Reached 100% utilization in a Big 4 ! For an entire year!

Time working those extra hours that we are required to eat to success in a more than competitive environment is time we are wasting in our live. I prefer to share time with my family than being stuck in a office with few friends and a Boss that I am not sure if really likes me or just have to put up with me as there is no other option.

Life is short and time is a limited resource

The week going by fast for me is a good thing. It means I am engaged in what I am doing and enjoying what I am doing so much that I get caught up in it. If time is dragging on that means I am bored and constantly checking my clock.

Hi ,

My last working day in
FIS Global was on 28th June and i got June month salary three days back and got payslip of June month.

But I didn't get my Service Letter till now .
Kindly tell how many days it will take to get the service letter and to whom I need to drop mail.

I have already dropped mails to teams but they are just mentioning other people in mail by saying please assist but noone providing my service letter.

Kindly tell to whom I need to drop mail.

OK folks, I'm kind of pissed. I interviewed with a dream company, made it to 6 interviews (all the way up to VP). Weeks later the recruiting manager shares they went with someone internally, no feedback. Today I see the same position being promoted. Do I pursue the same role or take this as a sign that I wasnt a good fit after all and let it go?


I heard something new (well too me lol) the other day that has stuck in my head.
Confession: I want a “Brain Dump” partner.
It was explained to me that at the end of the day you have a sit down with your partner/roommate/friend and “brain dump”—talk about anything that happened during the day, at work or personally that bothered you or happened so that you can get it all out before you go to sleep. Then you can start fresh each day. 😊 just thought I would share!

For accounting managers and above in industry - what metrics do you have to evaluate your team’s performance? I’m new to industry and my company doesn’t have anything but I’d like to set some goals for my team such as closing by 5th business day, getting all recons done by 20th of the month, submitting JEs by date indicated on close checklist, reducing number of manual JEs, etc. Looking for other ideas that can be quantified and tracked.


Hey 606 people, if all the performance obligations in a contract have the same service term, why does it need to go through a full RSSP allocation. No matter the allocation of selling price, the revenue recorded is the same (if it was bundled with point-in-timers, then yes I see the reason)
