This is the fourth state I’ve lived in and so far I would say the biggest jerks are just on the road. Everyone I’ve met in the office and at bars is really friendly!

We’re not all jerks, but you need to be fluent in sarcasm. It’s possible you’re taking seriously what is said sarcastically... it’s also possible, we’re jerks.

I found out that I was pregnant (unplanned) last week and it has absolutely shredded my relationship. I left the home my bf and I share, and I came to stay with my family. Part of the reason it got so bad is because he vehemently wants me to get an abortion, and I don’t know if I can do it. There wasn’t even a discussion of keeping it. He told me in no uncertain terms that he would resent me forever. I need help. Can anyone recommend a virtual counselor for us? Does anyone have any advice?

I’m a tax senior 1 (will be a senior 2 in October) and just got an offer with a 26% raise at a large public company on their provision team. There’s also an aspect of FP&A and helping with transactions so not strictly tax. All seems super interesting and the team seems great. I really like my EY team and my counselor has talked to me about an early manager promo next year but have never intended to be a PA lifer. Any reason I shouldn’t take it?
