Being an accountant sucks

Post by grim1500 » Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:47 am

Specifically, being an accountant at a public accounting firm, that is, doing work for businesses and individuals instead of working in an accounting department for one business, sucks. Doing tax returns for people who would try literally anything to save $2 on their taxes sucks. Doing monthly book work for businesses who have an office manager or someone else equally unqualified who screws everything up and having to correct all of it sucks. Doing audits of businesses but not being taught how to actually do an audit by the partners despite making it known you don't know what you're doing sucks ("just look at last year lol"). Not getting a raise in the two years I've worked here sucks. And a guy I had classes with when I was doing my MBA just became a partner at his firm, so that doesn't help my mood either.

I want an easy accounting job for the city or something. The pay there sucks even more, though.

Edit: Today's Friday, though, and that doesn't suck.
Edit 2: I had lunch and pooped, so I'm in a better mood now. Accounting still sucks, though.

I do, but it should be better every year. At the minimum, cost of living increases should be standard.

Update: I found out yesterday that we were losing the client that caused me to post this topic in the first place. It's great news because I hated doing their work, but it sucks to lose a high paying client, specifically one that I worked on and now gives me one less thing to do.

Haven’t seen it yet but judging by cover image being an accountant is mostly gun fights, car chases and damsels in distress.

I thought that movie was the dumbest thing I had ever heard of until I watched it, and it was actually pretty good.
