Right there with you. I usually take a 10 minute break to stretch my legs and walk around at about 2:30 or so, if I have the time. And stay hydrated! I find if I forget to stay hydrated in the afternoon, it makes staying productive even harder.

Unpopular opinion: most of public accounting issues stem from no one giving accurate upward reviews. I go out my way to reach out to HR to ensure negative upward reviews are documented because we have a lot of dumb people in this industry That moved up further than they deserve Because people are afraid of the recourse.

Hi fishes, need a suggestion
I'll b getting an offer on 1st Aug and will be joining on 2nd Nov, but my wedding is fixed on 2nd Dec for which I would require atleast 2 weeks of leave.
I haven't informed the HR of the new company regarding the leaves i am planning to take for wedding.
I will resign from my current org on Monday
How should i proceed? I doubt the HR will revoke my offer in case I inform them about my leave plan since no company would allow taking long leave within 1 month of joining

Hi boys & girls!

Joined a big firm (Big4) not long a go and starting to feel like I got a good grip on my current work.

I've always been very technical, so I think that the only thing I am missing now is making sales. (I really wanna make partner)

How to deal with not being staffed on deals and seeing others in your year be staffed? When asking partners directly for work, they refer you to the staffing partners. When asking staffing partners (repeatedly), they say “thanks for interest, we will have something soon.” Weeks and weeks pass by and you’re always below where you should be for billable hours (at this point, very far below). All reviews are essentially perfect and no negative feedback. Extremely frustrating and discouraging.

I send her my schedule for the next two weeks. She tells me she'll get back to me. It's been a week and a half and she hadn't replied. Have I been rejected?
