I’m curious to get the groups thoughts: things like masks haven’t really seen any “innovation” but with the likelihood of COVID being around for a while, do you expect any companies to try to upend the status quo?
So I'm a single dad, which I feel can be tough sometimes - doesn't fit with gender norms. It's the professional equivalent of not having baby changing stations in the mens room.
Is it a red flag if a guy is generous with his money but not his time?
Example: when he has time he prefers hanging out with his friends, or spending time alone. He also goes on trips with his friends but not me. But he splurges on dinners and gifts etc

Have you noticed inflation and the general chaos we're moving through affecting your business and firm? Just asking for different perspectives here, not a political discussion.
Any firms that use CCH make sure your invoices are being checked carefully. We just reviewed ours and were over-billed the last 2 years. We were supposed to have discounts and the math wasn’t even correct across for the amount times the discount to the amount billed. The worst part is our rep then gave a bullshit story of how the list price was incorrect on the invoice but the amount billed was correct.

2nd year partner at a top 6 accounting firm. Have offer from big 4 for $200K more annually. Don’t really want to take it, but how can I not.? That’s approx a college education annually after tax. Should I try to negotiate or just take the money and jump ship. Feeling Seriously undervalued for what I’m bringing to the firm in terms of people building, sales, book of business. Hate to not be loyal, but $200K is $200K. Advice please
I started a firm with three other colleagues about a year and a half ago. We all came from the same bigger firm and now obviously we are considered a very small. We want to make our first hire and hire someone for around $100,000 as a manager to manage around $200,000 of work. They came back at $120,000. After taxes and benefits that’s $150k to manage and prepare $200k of work. Anyone own a smaller firm who can share opinion? How much work should one manage for that kind of salary?
I work a midsize regional firm and, no surprise, we are hemorrhaging staff. And it’s the good ones leaving. Some for family offices and industry positions, which I can understand. But others for smaller accounting firms as staff and seniors which just seems like a career killer to me. I’m convinced we need to do retention bonuses, raises, and recruit new talent by paying above market. Of course I’m a younger partner and don’t have the pull to actually make this happen. Thoughts?
Vaccine mandates over finally. Except for the unconstitutional hypocritical NYC mandate.

Newer partner and first time having extra money to invest. I’ve maxed my 401k contributions past few years and currently have the rest in a brokerage account. I’m planing for a lot more contributions the next ~20 years until I retire. What does everyone else do? Is the Roth IRA the way to go? 529 plans for the kids?

I believe the way it happened with Andersen/Accenture is those that benefited were the Andersen partners not those going to newco but someone on here may be able to definitely say one way or the other
You definitely have your history incorrect. Andersen received only the payments that were already owed to it under internal agreement. Andersen consulting was allowed to leave by ruling of International Arbitrator without paying a single $ of break up payment.
All partners will participate in the split, so yes, if he’s admitted to the partnership before the ink has dried on the deal, he will benefit.
But there’s no guarantee the deal will go through. I’m skeptical at this point.
Agree. I’d be really surprised. There’s a high bar as far as how many partners have to agree and many are very skeptical it’s a good idea.
