Why don’t accounting firms publish profits per partner annually like big law firms do?

I think it’d be a good move and help establish some much-needed transparency. The bigger question is how would the entry-level staff/associates react in seeing how much the partners make?

The real answer is because nobody would work for these firms if they knew how bad they were getting fucked.

Can you really fathom this? Yes you think variable share partners are publicly going to publish this at any pa firm? Partners would be fighting amongst each other.

Do you want every employee’s salary and bonus to be posted as well? Could be upsetting when you see how much more your peers make or when they start analyzing you to determine you are not worth what you Most accounting firm partners make a lot of money but they all have 100% of the risk Eventually you will be paid what you are worth.

Per partner Profit is your high end estimate or a little better

I just needed to post this where people could relate. I’m 6 weeks along, constantly exhausted, and feeling a low level of queasiness all day. I’ve lost motivation to solve the most basic problems (like convincing my toddler she needs shoes to go outside) let alone run my project and lead proposals. I’m sure it’ll get better in the second trimester, but right now I spend the day counting down the minutes until bedtime. Any tips for survival are welcome!

How long would you wait before following up with a recruiter after a phone interview if you haven’t heard back? Everything in this process has gone so quickly until now and I don’t know whether I should reach out or not. I had a phone screen with the recruiter the day after she reached out to me and she set up my phone interview on the spot. The turnaround time has been less than 24 hours for everything but now it’s been radio silence and I’m starting to get anxious.

Made a project plan based on a previous merger they provided and changed the names to match the current merger. Scheduled meetings on a weekly basis. Took notes in meetings. Never spoke to client. Played video games the rest of the time. Apparently I'm the best consultant ever according the client feedback to ppmd. They also recommended me for promotion to manager for "being extremely diligent and hardworking". Why can't projects/clients like these be the ones that get multiple phases?!!
