What would you do if you were 29, single and public accounting makes sense for you on paper but you have more bad days than good? I don’t really like accounting, but excel in client management, staff training, amp is recruiting, etc. The firm I work for loves me but feel super lost as I’m not sure this is for me....I study doesn’t seem to be for me either tho. Any advice?

My previous manager would track us by hours daily, made a fuss everytime anything stretched and guilt us for that and the unplanned leave too unless it was COVID. Hinted him a lot of time, this is problematic but apparently he considered it "standard practice for agile".

Now 8/10 teammates have switched within < 1 year of project start (6-7 months with him) which tbh had good work in our opinion and even team was fun to work with even though none of us ever met in person.
