Just had our first team remote call. I have availability and team is looking for work for me, but I’m planning to resign on Friday bc it’s a good time to transition out. Should I tell the SM?

Why resigning right now is generally not smart for two reasons 1 everyone hates folks who quit during busy season - it will also look bad in the future when someone sees your resume 2 we are in a recession - might be short but it’s the wrong time to start a new job

Somebody I know left the firm during busy season last year (end of February) without any plan at all and got hired at another accounting firm around May.

Just out of curiosity, why is it a good time to transition out? I would think this is a terrible time

What's a good billable hour total for 2020? Given covid conditions (we faced slump in work about 2 months) and work from home productivity.

I am 7 years out in a transactional practice (real estate) and have an opportunity to move in house at a regionally respected company from a midsize firm. I have WFH flexibility at my current firm but bill about 1850-1900 per year. It would be about a 25% paycut. I have also been offered partnership starting in 2022 if I stay - not entirely clear what that long term structure looks like (would have to develop a partially independent book in next 3-5 years). Am I crazy if I leave?

WFH with a kid is making me less productive, so I end up working 30% longer hours to make up for it. But the longer I work, I get diminishing returns in productivity, so I have to work longer still. At this point, my mental stamina is just worn out. How do I fix this?
