Not sure if y’all have been in a similar situation but I’m staffed on a project that is mindless busy work and I feel like I’m not progressing in my career.

Not sure if I’m being super negative or are some of these thoughts normal? Is it WFH syndrome? Thoughts on how to cope?

This is a question for the auditors in public accounting firms. Do you know if there’s been any discussions about PA firms pushing back on clients filing deadline because of staffing shortages? Im on the tax side helping a prep and my client said that tax auditors have heard whispers about it and that a mid size firm already came out and told some clients that they will be prioritizing based on the statutory deadlines rather than when they want to file.

SOS! Need to set up a lunch with a higher profile client who doesn’t drink alcohol in NYC (so food needs to be on point, and a view is preferable!).

Tried Restoration Hardware Rooftop and they only take parties of six and no private events.. but thinking something in that vein where there’s a potential activity (aka walking around) and not JUST drinking!
