Anyone work at UHY? What's the culture like? How are the hours in busy season /non busy season? Do you work from home at all? I know they are back in the office. What's the dress code (I'm used to jeans and a golf shirt lmao)? Do the managers welcome new methods of preparing returns? Are they afraid of tech / make you prove out your formulas?
Accenture Recruitor reached out. Any thoughts on culture and Accenture life. I have 10+ years in experience - cyber program management and transformation. Ex EY who jumped to Accenture - thoughts
Can we talk about the “Rise & Grind” / “Hustle Culture” aspect that seems to be organically baked into our role as Producers. Of course, it is what it is to some degree- but I’ve realized, in order to do my job effectively, my rest & work-life balance is a MUST. How have you handled that? Or do you just power through?
director of diversity, director of culture, what do they do in the agency? Seriously wondering
I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.
I love orange is the new black but can’t stand how the inmates make pop culture references that they wouldn’t even know had they been in prison since at least 2013.
Does PwC have an "up or out" culture in the Advisory practice? How long does the firm typically expect you to stay at Manager
Want to chat with someone who is Indian by culture and has married either arranged or chosen a love marriage. Going through a turmoil during these times and my thoughts are taking the better of me.. I’d love to have an opinion from someone who’s been through it..
Does anyone else hate the interviews that you think have gone well, but then you end up being ghosted? I thought I did well because the interviewer told me I would ‘fit right into the team and team culture’ and said ‘keep an eye on your email, we move quickly and you’ll probably hear about next steps in the next few days’. Makes me feel like I am terrible at reading situations (on top of being terrible at interviewing). I hate not knowing what I did wrong and what I should be fixing.

Offers from OW ATK and S&O for undergrad position. Which would you guys pick based exit opps, prestige, and culture?
Some general question as I am not 100% on the culture. We forgot our daughter’s scooter at our community park. We see the same brand and color scooter at someone’s driveway near the park. Contd..
What’s the culture like at Wunderman Thompson? No specific agency needed, just in general.

Has anyone done a 2-hr roundtrip daily commute for years? Unfortunately in this situation due to location of spouse’s job -it’s fairly rural and that area doesn’t have the same level of education (kid is about to start K), diversity, convenience, jobs opps me, stuff to do or parks as our current city has. Switching jobs is not an option for him unfortunately. I do feel very guilty about the long commute for him though.
If you were looking to exit Big 4 Consulting, what positions would you be targeting? I have done a little of everything with no specialization (great performance reviews across the board). But now a little unsure of what my skills really are from an employer POV.
Hello 🐠, I have been on a project that I do not like, has absolutely obliterated my work life balance, and put me under a lot of stress. Not to say this doesn’t happen a lot in our job, but I have an opportunity to go back to an old client that I loved. My current project leadership knows the date I’m set to roll off, but have been hinting they won’t let me leave because I’m good at my job. I am so desperate to leave and have been advised by multiple colleagues to do so. What do I do??
Genuine question and attempt to understand: for those of you who are upset or unhappy about more robust efforts at diversity and inclusivity, can you explain why these efforts upset you? Or worry you?
Anyone ever used an employment offer from a client you’re currently on to renegotiate salary or not worth the effort?

SO stressed from the apartment hunt. Went to see a couple of places that looked nothing like the photos. Was told by one place that: “We don’t like roommates.” Brokers asking for a $200 fee just to apply. So many 1 beds being sold as 2 beds. Current landlord ghosting me when I want to stay. If anyone knows of reasonable true 2 bedrooms in Murray Hill or Kips Bay please let me know...bonus points if theu are offering a deal rn 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

What’s the compensation range for M3 (third year manager) for EY OTS / S&O in Dubai as well as HK/SGP?
Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say
If I booked a flight to depart on 12/30/18 and return 1/2/19 how do the PQMs etc get split up on United?
