GT 1- I worked part-time at BDO when my kids were little. I’m now at Deloitte and working 100% although I might cut it back to 80%. Before I was hired I mentioned that I might want to cut back a little. I’m just so tired of having no life for 4+ months out of the year. There’s a manager in our group that’s 75% and a senior manager who is part-time as well. You can find part-time, not sure how common it is. I think it’s easier to do in tax. I started out in audit and tried part-time back in the 90s and it just didn’t work, but then again I was only a senior

Hey I’m curious as well - can you really stick to the 75-80% during busy seasons?

I’m there! Partner at a mid sized firm for over 24yrs. Good comp top to bottom, good work life balance. I’ve developed a great client base and love what I do. Even more than helping my clients I love to help our staff achieve their goals, both personal and professional. Could have retired years ago but I’m only 57 and I love helping clients staff and community. I will step down and retire in about 8 more years but not because it’s my goal, just the right thing to do for the younger partners at my firm. The key is finding a firm that’s pays for performance and results rather than pushing hours. If you’re good at what you do and are not happy, then why are you there and what is your plan to make it better. Life is too short to waste much time at a job you don’t love.

With 5G, the zones of beach that meet your qualifications will be limited and probably won’t have liquor stores close by. Pending geospatial analysis for confirmation.

I currently work in a hybrid sales/marketing role. However, I would love more experience in marketing specifically so I can move in to a marketing specific role. Does anyone have a suggestion of books or articles, podcasts, organizations to follow that will allow me to stay up to date on the latest trends but also help prepare for a marketing centric role? Thank you

Spinoff question... I know FMLA technically only covers you if you've worked for 12 months at your employer but has anyone actually had their employer say "sorry you we only here for 10 months so you can take your two weeks of accrued vacation, after that we'll expect you back." ? Since FMLA is unpaid anyway, I would imagine most employers would at least let you have unpaid time off.
