Well, this is something.
Back when I was a tax associate, my colleagues and I would watch the Hoops and Yoyo “It’s Sarcastic Wednesday.”
Here's a great story about Aaron Blecker, a 105-year-old Great Neck, New York resident who's had a pretty good run. And yep, he's an accountant.
Plus, Uber, a PwC tax partner is in trouble and a dude drop out of college, says it's a scam.
Gone are the days of meticulously color coding client folders, strategically placing sticky flags and paper summation tapes, and making perfectly placed tickmarks on each beautiful sheet of paper.
Have we missed anyone?
This is the equivalent of an arms race in the accounting world, I guess.
The big news in international audit firm world today is an announcement by the PCAOB that Deloitte’s Brazil firm audited badly and then covered up that bad auditing, which is also bad.
Last year, the only second-tier accounting firm not going by its inititals, Grant Thornton, announced a new paid-time off policy that would allow its employees to take unlimited vacation.
DIdn't need this. Didn't want it.
