Anyone at PWC right now? What’s the company like? Psycho hours? Using modern tech (slack, google sheets, lucidchart, github, etc)? Flexible for Mac/Linux? Bunch of ego maniac micro managers? I am considering an opp there, but had bad exp at KPMG, so I am cautious about going back to a b4.

I am in our cyber practice and truly love my co-workers and the work is fairly interesting. I am displeased with the pay and vague expectations that may or may not result in promotion and the politics of the firm. I stay for the people but worry about my career.

Northwest market. PwC is not having layoffs - hiring freeze is in place for most positions and performance based layoffs seem to have been higher than normal.

It’s Big 4...going to be highly dependent on the specific practice you end up in

Like some people said, homogenous work culture in big4 firms is a myth. There are too many variables involved (partner, directors, timelines committed, type of work, mix of teams, and most importantly the client). I have been part of the firm for more than 4 years in SF practice. There are some of best people I met (they will remain as my lifetime friends) and some folks that I won’t smile if we run into each other in aliens land. One thing I can say, I have not met a dumb person so far though. Met smart people, toxic & manipulative, helpful, personal etc but not dumbest fellow.

Which practice at KPMG?

Yes OP, that is true. Many left to work for pure play tech firms. Phds were being underutilized

It’s Big4, you get both ends of the spectrum and everything in between. Definitely using some cool tech though

Been with the firm for past 4.5 years. Never had to deal merging the with doc, ppt shit. We use google suite, and I cannot imagine going to back to a firm working with MS offline products. Having said that, google is not gold. It annoys many times with its crazy loading times, and gives up during important meetings.

How Do I get my students with emotional disturbance to engage in a zoom meeting

I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?
