There's FS in Seattle

I'm not sure about the PNW region in terms of size of the tax/FS groups. Definitely one of the smaller groups but idk how small

like

We only have an FS practice in the Bay Area and LA.

I thought maybe at least Seattle would have some FS. Is tax just a small presence in the Pacific Northwest? Or is there tax, just not FS tax?

Pwc3 do you support other offices like SF and LA? Or is there local work?

like

Yes. A lot of work from SF and SJ office with a mix of funds in Seattle.

Very good to know about Seattle. I'm in LA and work with the FS team a lot. Big team and good leadership.

Pwc2 are you on Seattle FS team?

No but we (greater Chicago market) work with them for a few clients

Cool. I'm currently in a bigger market but new to pwc...is it possible to work remote for my current team out of another office? When I was at EY this was really hard to do....so just wondering if that's even a possibility?

FS tax in Seattle has around 22 people. We are in a hiring freeze right now but that team always needs people.

Thanks for your help! I work primarily with PE but have some hedge experience as well. Good to know there are options on west coast :)

FS Dallas is growing also.

What do your normal hours look like? I made plans for 5:00pm (after working until 9pm for the past few weeks) and was told that I cannot have plans during “normal working hours” which are from 8am to 8pm. There was nothing due the next day and nothing urgent that needed done. I talked to my manager and he pretty much said that’s consulting hours. It’s a small firm, so curious what other people’s hours are?
