If your client is 3/31 year end but books investments at NAV using the 12/31 market value adjusting for cash flows, what’s the best way to approach this? They don’t book 3/31 because they don’t get the numbers in time. Curious what other people do

I’m a new manager and am trying to get off a client. Need guidance if I should do it. I work with a very nice senior manager who is up for partner. She gave me a very decent review. The client is horrible though. Piecemeal review comments, constant updates workpapers and last minute changes. The only good thing is working with this senior manager. She is also my counselor. I asked her to get off of this account, and she said the firm probably won’t allow it. I have another senior manager I work
Hi y’all. So I haven’t technically onboarded for my firm yet, I’m suppose to start in 3 weeks. One of the projects I’m going to be put on requested to have a little interview with people of the team so I had mine today. The “interviewer” didn’t really seem to think I was qualified for this project at the end of the conversation (agree to disagree with him on that). Regardless, am I in trouble for not fitting his criteria/selling myself enough…kinda worried on my manager’s response….

I know this has been posted before but I just need support. I’ve been back from mat leave for two months. I don’t like my job, my motivation to work is gone. I just think I hate this work. I am interviewing at other jobs but nothing is happening. I used to have so much drive to do well - even if I hated a project. Now I’m doing the minimum to just get by. I feel I need to be inspired work wise (hence, looking for a new job), but just kinda depressed and aimless.

Moms, I need advice. I’m one month in at D (previous consultant, spent last 5 years in industry as a leader of leaders) and came in at Mgr - and I *hate* it. I’m 13 weeks with our first and mat leave was a huge factor in coming to D, so feeling trapped. I spend more time dealing w/ asshole client SM (not my project SM) than doing work. My coach is great, but her advice was basically, “D is full of assholes 🤷🏻♀️, get used to it.” Is it too soon to leave? Especially pregnant? What to tell recruiters?

Considering going into FP&A because I hear a lot of people like it.... I haven't done much with it so trying to figure out if I'd like it or not. Is it like managerial or cost accounting classes in college? Or similar to finance classes in college (vs accounting classes)? Or anything to compare it to? I've done engagement economics analysis and budget to actual and enjoyed that, but not sure if that's even remotely similar? What's your experience been?

Thoughts on changing wedding coordinator? Been speaking with one for a few weeks (no contract signed), she’s done some work for me including viewing venues and scheduling a caterer. I estimate she’s spent maybe 20 hours on me. But after viewing her past weddings and those of another coordinator in the area, im in love with the other coordinators’ wedding style. I paid this one $500 so far (for my own conscience) but I wanna cut the cord. Harsh?
Random Question - I live with a roommate for the last 2 years now. We have become really good friends and she is like a sister to me. We used to hangout and do a lot of fun stuff before COVID. When I make a plan to do something during COVID, I always include her to do or go somewhere. Of late, when she makes plans, she goes on her own or if she goes with her friends (whom I know), she would not invite me. I feel left out and sad because of it. I think I should not feel that way as she can
