Dont you guys feel even a sense of guilt when this happened to your loved ones??

If you do feel sense of guilt, thats the right way to think. As a financial services director and a Chartered Financial Consultant, i am specialized in providing financial and wealth advisory services specializing on family planning for middle aged adults. With over 12 years of experience in the financial services industry, such adversaties mentioned above would not be an obstacle with the financial products that we could offer.

Alternatively, if you want to step out of the corporate slave life, you could also join our team which are experienced financial consultants that are well renumerated compared to other industries such as banking, law and medicine.

If you are interested, do not hesitate to hit me up

Some engagements can be very relaxed. small company, no urgent deadlines, no complex workpapers, client willing to pay for filing extension. Everyday can switch off laptop at 6pm

Those unlucky ones are booked 6 to 9 months on one large engagement with many deadlines and with many bullshiit like quarterly reviews, interim, pre-final, final, many meetings, many reporting deadlines and all these will overlap each other so you can be doing interim , Q3 review and pre-final concurrently while preparing for meeting with client. Your peak period will be 6 to 9 months. Those even more unlucky ones will be double booked on other engagements on top of this large engagement

Wha variance very huge bro. Working hours is just the unit of measurement. The factors are many.

Client itself got many variables already, can be very complexity of biz and structure, can be very chin chai or very anal. timeline also can be need to report by xyz date vs can tu for 4 months kind.

Internally, your manager itself can be the devil or the angel, same goes for your team, you can have a team full of monkeys or a team full of people on auto pilot.

So considering all the factors the spectrum is very huge. Very good means maybe peak OT until 10pm for 2 weeks can close case. Very cui means 4 months of OT till 3am from your interims to finals also see before.
