Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior.

All with full authority to be rude and unprofessional! EY Deloitte PwC Accenture Boston Consulting Group
