I’ve learned everything I know stealing ideas from other people, so I’ll put reader questions here. Have a question? Just reply to this email!
Hey you ever dabbled in Auto Hot key?
I used to use it a bunch! I’ve moved more toward RPA tools for “attended” stuff, as it’ll do the keyboard macros in addition to more complex UI interactions.
Any comments on TaxDome?
I’d say give it a try and form your own opinion. Firms are run so differently, client bases are so different, the right app is super contextual to your firm IMO.
Do you think it would be a good idea to look for a smaller firm rather than working for bigger accounting firms? I heard I could get better work life balance but I wouldn’t learn as much as I would in a bigger public firm.
That’s the same advice I’d give - upside of big firm is fantastic training resources, usually better money, and a great resume builder. Upside of (some, but definitely not all!) small firm is better balance.
For me it would depend on what season of life I was in. If I was pre-kid, still single I’d sweat it out at big firm since it’s great technical experience. Post marriage, definitely post kids I’d never do big firm.
