What deadline?

Literally nothing

If there are no independence issues then like the others mentioned likely nothing will happen. But if you/your family or SO have investments/loans/relationships etc that would be impermissible for independence and you failed to check/preclear before you start working on this engagement then there will be an independence violation and you will get into BIG trouble. So if you know you or your family have a lot of investments I'd suggest you at least take a look at the restricted securities/affiliates listing to make sure you are all good. Unless you are a manager or above then you should be already precleared through the independence checkpoint system.

Having a bit of an issue with my manager. She is an SVP who catastrophizes constantly and it has become very stressful, to the point that I am shutting down. For example, she is of course part of many conversations that I am not. She often comes to me and says “so and so client/leadership is upset about this”. And I’ll ask for context, how do I help/fix, etc. She doesn’t provide any and just reiterated that they are upset about something we did. I ask for clarity; is it something I did? Cont.

Newbie question… Am I allowed to bill for reading internal emails about a matter? As the only first year on most of my matters I’m just cc’d on a ton of emails with the more senior folks strategizing. I read them all so that I don’t look dumb if asked to do something. But will the client pay for my time just reading emails? If so, what’s the best way to phrase this?

Fully remote roles. Anyone else notice smaller companies that don't have offices in high COL cities tend to not pay as well as companies that do have offices in high COL cities. I've had a few HR interviews lately where I thought that, after they revealed what the top of their pay range was. I asked for more than their max each time. Feels bad cause I'm in NYC. That's one of my main concerns with fully remote roles.
