Public accounting is a conservative and structured profession in which the leaders with power lack agility and adaptability to change when it comes to innovation, inclusion, and quick upward mobility.

People don’t get promoted when they’re really good - they’re promoted when their butts have been in the chair for x period of time. The reward for great work is to stay at the same level and do other people’s work. Which is why the good ones leave.

Isn’t there a whole accounting principle called “conservatism?” Take the less favorable of two numbers so it only creates nice surprises if it turns out it was the other result?

Lol, my favorite was when I was talking to a tax senior about income smoothing and they didn't understand why it was a bad thing. Smh.

Please expand on quick upward mobility...

If someone’s ready to get promoted, 9 out of 10 times it doesn’t happen — I know business case is important but how else do you expect the business to grow if the ones with the skills aren’t given opportunity ?

We have been in NYC for a little while with kids (2/4 yo, we are 33 yo) and even if we are financially well-off, it feels like we can’t buy a house for our lives. We are in the legal industry but potentially could work remotely forever.

Anyone found a city they love outside of NYC where buying a house is doable? We love the diversity we can find in NYC (food, international communities). Any recommendations of cities to look at? Not interested in suburbanish settings.

Hello Fishes!

I am moving to Pune by June Week 1 and planning to move into a flat near or in Kharadi. While I have a lot of colleagues looking for the same, I am wanting to find flatmates who work at the different company or in a different profession than consulting.

Now my logic behind it is to not surround yourself with the similar mindset people all the time, some diversity would be nice to have in life.

So if you are someone/or know someone looking for the same, HMU!

Any agency in Chicago hiring for Diversity & Inclusion and open to actually addressing the challenges and make change? Bonus points for an agency that allocates a proper budget.

Why are town Hall meetings so impersonal? They are all about awards / the number of people hired. I know FCB health is large, but we never hear from people who aren’t Executives. Last town hall, when discussing inclusion efforts, there were no people of color represented and one of the 4 pillars of diversity was centered around our “reputation as an organization” (that really rubbed me the wrong way). At my last agency those conversations were always led by people of color from every level.

General question: Is there any room in corporate America for real, actionable DE&I discussions and initiatives? I've observed so many corporate versions become an advertising strategy (SM posts, diversity reports) without doing the actual work (increasing representation in senior leadership, salary analyses, having an effective reporting system for bias). Is this just how it is?

All these clubs allow these merch tables and not tax is collected. When times are good and they have shows 5-7 nights a week these slaves become material
