At what point do public accounting firms, especially the partners and the senior leadership realize the industry has a major problem on their hands with the number of accounting graduates dwindling every year and record exodus from the industry given the mismatch on stagnated pay vs the amount of work expected to be done? Are they really that oblivious to think outsourcing to India is going to solve all of their problems? No one is willing to have a real conversation.

Received a verbal offer from a recruiter congratulating me on clearing the final round. However did not receive a written offer or what the TC package would look like. They have started the right to work checks and the investments / pension plan declaration. Is this normal? Should I send across any documents or wait for the written offer to come through (not even sure if the terms offered would be favourable!!)?

Anyone faced a similar situation / have any advice on how to proceed? Thanks!

I’m going to quit my job.

We are a tiny but successful startup with a fantastic team all the way up to the CEO, but my two direct bosses are VERY toxic. It sucks because this is a women-founded/led tech company with a LOT of potential. They checked every box when I interviewed!

What advice would you have for quitting when your team of critically depends on the headcount? We’re hiring, but no bites yet.

I don’t want to burn bridges, but my mental health literally cannot take much more. TYSM!

Just in case anyone is in a financial pickle... if you really need to pull cash you can pull your Roth IRA CONTRIBUTIONS without tax penalty. Granted it’s not a great idea to pull from your retirement, but if you’re in a bad enough spot, know it’s an option. You can always make more contributions later when you’re in a better position but don’t pull earnings because you’ll pay taxes on that. (Unsure if this is truly good advice so I’m also curious about everyone’s thoughts please)

Are there typically payment history requirements that would make a new loan ineligible?
