I noted this in the British Medical Journal last week, written by Dr Des Spence when discussing the way in which medicine is sold to undergraduates:
University prospectuses should be more honest. Rather than seeing images of relaxed and smiling doctors in white coats gathered around a microscope we should see hungover,frazzled doctors and nurses huddled at the fire exit smoking. The caption might read "A career that pushes you to the edge and then flings you over it."
I couldn't help but think there are some accountants who might share that opinion.
