I’m about to be staffed on a 3 month project and I will be having surgery on the 5th week of the project. How should I let my manager know? Would this be grounds to not staff me? The surgery is important and the recovery shouldn’t be too bad (1-2 weeks). I plan on taking a week off but letting the team know that I can come online to work but not the full day
We are in the process of consolidating accounts for a new client and moving them over to Charles Schwab where we custody - all straight forward stuff. The client has an old 401k from a previous employer and filled out the paperwork with that 401k to roll it to Schwab. So about $470k hit her Schwab account last week. And then exactly 7 days later, another $460k hits again. Both from the 401k custodian. But her account was only $470k. I think they messed up royally. Now what???

I have just over 2 years experience in consulting, I am focussed on FS clients but still a generalist for the most part and I’m not truly enjoying consulting. I would like to be client facing with a good work/like balance, and so have looked at roles such as customer success or account executive. However, I’m wondering what other types of roles could work for me? (I realise there are so many options but I just have no idea and so don’t know what to look for!) Would appreciate any and all ideas!

As a tax manager how do you stop feeling like a factory worker on the line churning out tax returns? I’m outgoing and do not like being in the weeds…stayed in public accounting thinking making manager would get me to more of a sales/client relationship position but nothing changed since I was the main client contact as a senior and now have no one to delegate to.

Question about contingency fees (I work in an insurance defense firm and therefore have no idea)- client signs contingency agreement with law firm. Law firm eventually sees case is not going to be a winner in court, and therefore withdraws. Client, on his own, negotiates a settlement. Is prior law firm that withdrew beforehand entitled to fees from the settlement? It’s a first-party property damage case. Thanks in advance!
I’m being made to work about 50h of client work even while taking PTO once a week. PPMD just keeps putting me on additional small projects that require about 5-10h/week even though he knows I’m fully stretched between a full time and part time project taking 45h+ which is why I’m taking 1day/week off. I feel imma get burnt out soon and start looking elsewhere. Anybody going though this? ‘Tis the impact of high turnover & lack of understanding of boundaries + Team can’t find new candidates

Really struggling mentally, client work slipping & my relationship with my SO is hard. I find it hard to get out of bed most days. My visa situation is unknown, I haven't seen family in two years and still recovering from a recent assault.. I just got dropped from my PRD (with my coach) for being flaky. I feel defeated. Anyone have advice on how to cope when struggling so much? I feel like life would be better if I didn't exist... FYI I'm already in therapy...

My wife was informed a few weeks ago that she would be laid off as of end of year. She signed the paperwork and will be receiving a decent severance due to her tenure there. Now the company is saying they may have some other work for her to do for a few months and they could extend her contract if interested. If she says no, is she still eligible for her severance since she already signed her paperwork?
