Need to make examples of people. I think it is extremely harsh as lots of new staff don’t know wtf they’re doing and it’s pretty hard to say no to seniors who supposedly have your backs.

WSJ has this guy down as an assistant manager at the time of the audit in 2016. As far as I can tell, that’s the equivalent to an S3.

If that’s the case, I have far less sympathy for him in terms of being a junior auditor. He probably should know better than to create new documentation and insert them into existing work papers of a closed audit, 5 years into his career.

That said I do agree that 2x his net annual salary is a ridiculous fine for this especially considering the partner is being fined £400k which is probably not even 1x his net annual comp.

The individual who wrote the notes, and is being fined £50k, was in his first year of his graduate programme (equivalent to an A1). The individual who instructed him to create the document, and who knew it would be fraudulently added to the file, was an AM (equivalent to S3) and is being fined 100k.

Did he then insert them into the workpapers? Something about this headline feels too vague.

Yeah he should have known. I’ve dealt with court orders before and they probably have similar expectations. You provide everything as is.

What does it feel like to not be depressed? I’ve been working with my therapist and have gradually been feeling better and better. Lately I find myself having more energy than I know what to do with and feeling a lot of joy for just being alive. It’s so foreign to me that I doubt this feeling all the time. Is this what someone without depression feels?!

If I found a house on the market, sent it to my realtor and asked if we can go see this property, he responded said it would probably be tomorrow, seller says it probably won’t pass inspections for financing so I say okay forget it because I think this realtor won’t be any value add since this is an investment property. He does go off and lists things that need work. Will he have probably cause to collect a commission if I go directly to seller with an offer?

Had a mental breakdown today, but was able to use some techniques I learned these past 2 weeks, to feel better. I have a daily journal, and I write one thing I’m proud of, and I write down one negative belief about myself, and the truth (i.e. Ive been with PwC for 7 years and im a failure, when the truth is everyone has their own journey, and no one cares how long it takes you to move up). I’m a work in progress, but I feel better accepting and understanding who I am. Therapy works!
