Partners do have the pressure to bring in new clients and ensuring that the audits they are in charge in meets the auditing standards as part of their KPI. They are actually not as free as you think they are, given that their day to day tasks involve sitting in multiple conference calls with clients, sorting emails, mentoring, HR matters, reviewing 20+ audit files as well as providing quality review to other engagements as well

Partner has to review as well because they have the overall responsibility of the outcome of audit engagements (meaning to say, if anything happens lets say audit insprction by MAS or ACRA, they are the first to answer to the regulators). Partners together with the SM actually sit through conference calls with clients on key management meetings and understanding of the client business process. Also, if the SM is unable to handle the client, the partner will have to step in as well.

So to actually think of it, an audit partner faces great risks given that a bad audit can derail its career. Therefore, is a high risk but high reward career.

Then no money.

Partners are like business owners, they’re motivated to bring in the business to increase their profit share.

The manager should have an adequate overview of the status and progress of the engagement to facilitate this handover.

You cannot ignore work during your notice period unless you are prepared to seriously burn bridges.

What does people do when they resign? As in will they actualy follow up their work
Properly or tend to leave the mess to others? I think it's always the latter. Usually ppl are so burnt out and hence quitting, lost the motivation to do proper job anyway
