Work life balance is definitely better compared to what I hear in Asia but still not fantastic, probably average 12ish hour days. Some studies are 10 some 14+ Work is largely in Syd/melb, with some in Auckland and bris/perth. Transfers/engagement loans overseas happen but not super common. You probably can’t specialise in one function/industry due to the small office size. No matter what your specialty is you’ll probably get dragged into other things too. Initiatives, you can do it if you want, but no one forces you to do anything. Integration with global firm is okay, we fly in partners/senior partners/experts often but not so much lower down peeps.

Thanks Mck2! Keen to know what work life balance and travel ops are like (have been told significant number of international projects but not sure if this is realistic)? Also interested in communities of practice and internal initiatives and how much you are expected/encouraged to get involved with these types of things? Also how is the integration with practices/groups globally. Current firm does CoP well and gives great opportunities to get involved with internal programmes (in addition to project roles) which I have really enjoyed. Thanks so much!

Thanks so much @McK2! Interestingly quite different to what I’ve been told in recruiting so glad I asked here!

So, super weird question: Others often consider me the "smartest person in the room" but I love being challenged and called out when I'm wrong. Is this weird? Is there a term to describe this (other than obnoxious)? Asking here because for some reason in our culture it's super taboo to talk about how smart we are and we're all supposed to pretend we're less intelligent than we are too avoid looking arrogant or making others feel inferior.

I don't know how much longer I can do this.
