My client got F'ed over by one of their employees failing to disclose some things to the SEC I caught it brought it to the clients attention now I'm stuck doing diligence on over 100 employees. I keep catching things. I feel like I'm creating more issues for the clients but at the same time I'm protecting the firm as a whole which they're thankful for. Do I have anything to worry about by finding all these problems?

Wow that’s awesome; way to go!! Insist people start to call you “eagle eyes”

Just be careful how you present it. I have the same issue but lately I get the feeling that some seniors see it as “oh here we go again.. what is it this time” type of thing. So make sure you present it in a way that doesn’t make it sound like you’re always “finding issues.” Make it sound like you’re proposing a way to move forward.

Prayers that I can keep my mouth shut at the office today ladies. Had an ambush meeting yesterday that completely blindsided me and my boss with feedback from my client.

If it's true, I'm probably quitting because the client hasn't even indicated there's a problem and I can't do two-faced relationships.
