Being on a team where there isn’t a client or engagement manager constantly looking over your shoulder makes this job much more productive and enjoyable. When I have a micro-managing engagement team or client, I end up doing a bunch of pointless tasks and spend less tome thinking about the tasks that actually matter.

Partner: you will work as an acting senior, but we do not grant you the rank of senior or a raise. Staff: what? How can you do this? It’s outrageous, unfair! Partner: take a seat, young auditor. Me: what about the client who ate all the cookies?

How many days of PTO do y’all typically take while staffed and how do you socialise it? Feels like I will be letting my team down if I take time off, especially if its more than 1 Friday, since there will be no one to take over my workstreams and ensure they are completed on time. Other members are working as hard if not more and adding my shit on top of that feels cruel. We’re on a long term project so no opportunity to be on the beach soon (thats a good thing I know). Pls help.

Here's a situation. I have been selected to join as a manager at a big four entity. While the HR seems to be fine with the hike and the overall package, the senior/management in the team/project seems to be unhappy with the same.
