That we work 80hr weeks for two months just to issue a stack of papers of which we only have 2 pages of words in. And then sit in front of a group of people 8 months later to get our work torn apart, causing the firms to document more and more and more for the stack of papers. Oof. Viscous cycle.

Working with a large group of people who copy everyone from the group on every email, even if it has nothing to do with you. And yes I know people do this to cover their own butt. Just hate receiving 15 + emails ,every day, that have nothing to do with me.

Just out of curiosity...when you give them work did you clearly explain what is needed? If you don't, you can't complain about work not done to your satisfaction.

Hey fishes,

Don't know why lady interviewers have a problem with gents or is it that the interviewer simply wants to reject the candidate.

Left big 4 for industry a couple weeks ago and everything is going really well at the new job. I applied to the IRS 6 months ago and just heard back I have an interview. An interview is not an offer, but still torn if I should go forward. My city only has one industry highly dependent on the economy, and I was drawn to the IRS because of stability and feels like I’ll only get one shot. Not here to start a comp debate - family who works for the gov says they will match current salary. Any advice?
