Asking for general advice on how to approach this. Wife has been working very long hours and her company has not hired anyone to replace talent that has left. My wife is left alone with all the workload and the company won’t do anything to bring in more workers. The higher ups keep sending more work her way and no additional hands. Her boss is aware of the situation but won’t act on it. This is starting to cause a more serious problem: mental health issues. What would you do to escalate this?

Internally transferred into FDD as an audit senior 3. My coach and partner have indicated that I’m still eligible for promotion to manager based on years of experience. I’m trying to gauge the actual likelihood of this happening. Obviously firms bring in audit managers at the manager level with no FDD experience but would love to know if it’s possible/likely to be promoted to manager with less than a year of experience. I’d advise anyone in audit to transfer sooner rather than later!
