The answer to your question, “how can you do this,” lies in the increased responsibilities bestowed upon the poor soul of a manager who is now effectively the lead senior backstop. So everyone loses. And I’m aware this is a reference but the substance is lacking. No I’m not fun at parties, please find the nearest exit from my lawn and have a nice day.

And when the engagement turns into a shitshow, I can hear Palpatine tell me; “Good. Good. Let the bullshit flow through you.”

Thanks in advance!

What kind of raise would be competitive and fair for jumping from public (big 4) to private for tax, for any level? And would I expect almost no growth in salary in private if there’s no promotion? And is jumping from public to private through audit usually grants a better raise? Thanks for any insight!

Anyone made the jump from agency to freelance PM and can live to tell about it? I want the highs and the lows. I’ve been seriously considering it more and more, but need to know the truth about what to expect. More than anything, I want to be remote and be able to make my own schedule. Any pointers on how to get started? I’d love to do a budget exercise as well, to see how to make it all work—but I know it’s very unpredictable. Any tips/tricks are appreciated!
