During tax season (pre-covid) there would be a standing ovation for anyone seen leaving the office before 10pm lol

I used to work at EY and our GDS team seemingly worked 24 hours a day... I’d get into the office and they were pinging me and calling me until lunch EST. Then would be back on by the time I was leaving the office.

I’m a former EY FSO senior, it’s the worst group in EY for sure, busy season literally never ends.

I’m depressed. Nothing unique about my depression - I’m in big law, my career defines me, when I’m not working I can’t find the will to get off the couch, I’m sad or I’m numb…I know I’m the only one that can make a change to my life…I’m on antidepressants. Just extremely unmotivated and paralyzed. Self-help books are not for me, but I am curious - has anyone tried a guided depression/anxiety journal? Any recommendations if so? Or, if you have experienced the same, what steps did you take?

Considering switching from Deloitte to PwC or GT. I interviewed for a similar team to my current one. The team at both PwC and GT is smaller than Deloitte. I have been working at Deloitte for 1.5 years. Has anyone left Deloitte for other Big4 or GT? How was your experience? Or people working at PwC or GT, how do you feel about your team/ opportunities to learn/ work life balance? Does it look bad to leave Big4 before completing 2-3 years?
