Brande Porter’s FutureMe

Managing Partner, Big 4 Accounting Firm

Key Stats

Salary: Big Bucks
Weekly hours: 50+

You’re the face of one of the world’s largest public accounting firms. You worked incredibly hard to get the title of managing partner, and you’re rewarded with a hefty salary. In exchange for that salary, the firm relies on you to generate business. You travel often to meet with potential clients as well as current ones, while thousands of people working under you get the job done back at the office. You and your fellow partners are responsible for the success or (gulp) failure of the firm. Piece of cake, right?
