PSA FYI 60 hour weeks leading up to busy season (May) and 70 hour weeks during busy season (June-September) are an expectation, aka the norm.

Kinda makes me mad. If everyone has been working 60-70 hours all year and it’s become the expectation, then we aren’t getting fantastic raises.... (?)

It’s like we get beaten into submission with regards to working these hours until we submit and enforce the same expectation onto the “young-ings”

Working at small firm for 7 years. They created a new Staff Manager position to supervise and train the support staff in 1 office and other internal operation tasks. They promoted a paralegal into the position. They just asked me to take on the training across all offices because the Staff Manager is doing 50% paralegal work due to turnover. I told them if I were to take on a task of a manager, I should get a promotion and raise to do the task. They did not agree. What do you think?

Posted this in the Litigation and Arbitration bowl and I guess non-ADHDers just do not get how you can fall off track for an entire month. Anyway reposting my question here:
ID people, how long did it take you to get to billing 160-170 hours per month? I am 4 months in and had a terrible Sept. I only billed 75 hours and know I am capable of better. I was up to 120 the previous couple months, but just fell into the void last month. I keep hearing that it gets easier to bill and people don’t even

I was wondering if someone can help me clarify the PA requirements for taking the CPA Test. I have a Bachelors degree in Economics, but no Accounting credits. I was wondering if my 36 credits in ECON, Finance, Business Law classes will qualify me to sit for the test? I fully understand I need 150 for the license, plus 12 accounting credits which I plan on pursuing after passing the tests. The NASBA site says you need 24 credits in the above but it’s not specific.

File lots of returns for family. SIL sent me a 1098 for student loans with $0 interest paid in 2019.

Last year interest $1,500 and I don't think these are Federal loans. Tax refund to pay for hot water tank that just broke, so, you know.

I cannot imagine having a decent job and not paying your loans, just cuz???
