SM Pro- building an actual relationship with clients Cons- the partners dumping everything on you with zero direction, the staff- mgrs thinking you are just dumping everything on them when in reality you are juggling 20 more things, sales goals, super angry clients. The cons go on and on my frieeeend! 🥲

Seems like this is a good place to get a reality check on what I am looking for in a position. I am trying to leave my current firm. I am a Senior Tax Accountant. Been the only Senior for a year. Currently make $76k. Had a bonus of $4500 this year. Not sure what the bonus is going to be next year (or if there will be any) since they are moving to a new bonus plan that is supposed to be more "fair and generous" We have a Safe harbor 401k plan. So get an automatic 3% contribution to 401K.

Can someone kindly connect me with Investment Banking HR/Recruiter/anyone willing to help? My friend interviewed for Goldman Sachs NY. Cleared the HireVue but didn’t get any communication further.
