Hi all, I am working as a qualified accountant in industry. I started off on a contract and was made permanent after 5months. At 5 months, everything was going well, meeting deadlines easily, fixing any backdated accounts that were messy etc. More importantly, I was able to go home on time. A year on, I have been given more responsibilities, in fact LOTS of extra work. I have asked for a payrise, they effectively said no. I am now in position where my employer is really overworking me to very tight deadlines. We have just about got in a new qualified accountant to support. But i have been doing so many extra hours (to meet tight deadlines) not being recognised or appreciated for it. I feel like it was a big mistake taking on the permanent role, I should have stuck with the 12 months contract. So what shall I do? Carry on working stupid long hours? Or leave and make myself available for contract roles?
