Anyone know how the London audit office is? Compared to US. Hours/culture/etc..

I worked in another U.K. office for 3 years. My hours were no comparison to working in the us. Like not even close. Barely worked weekends and if I recall correctly barely stayed for dinner. I would say that had few clients where specialists from London helped us out so based on talking with them London worked a bit more / but still don't think anything like us. I would say busy season you'd probably charge... 55 hours per week and out of busy season you'd be maximum 40. Would say for London though / and this was not ey folk - but I'd expect to commute an hour a day. Which if you live on la maybe used to that - but most people are not

Agreed with SM1. Deloitte is incorrect in "daily hh" but we do drink a pint at lunch often. I work a lot less than i did in the US but it's not uncommon for me to work at midnight or log on after work. Commuting is a bitch and generally challenging to get used to, so sometimes the days do feel really long.

Getting across central London takes nearly 45 min in a lot of cases. Also many people can't afford to live zone1 either, so depending on your circumstance you may have to take the train (not tube). Then there's walking to the tube... the stations are about 15 min apart so many people I know walk 10+ min on either side...

That said, I liked living in London but didn't grow up with public transport. It was an adjustment is all. It has so many other positives.

Thanks!! Why is the commute longer? If you live in central London, would commute still be as bad? Are clients far away?

Ah I see. Thanks for your perspective!

Haha you actually serious Deloitte 1?

I’m moving to Scotland, not London. So kinda worried about adjusting to life in a small city. Was pretty pumped taking up the offer as I was keen to get the hell out of new york, now i’m having second thoughts

Do you like doing things outdoors? Scotland is beautiful. A bit cold and rainy for my tastes and not into whiskey, but it is fun. Fringe will be great. You can also travel a ton around Europe most weekends (I'm probably travelling one weekend a month).

How have you dealt with underperforming employees / employees with poor time management skills in the past? I've got someone that's a great culture fit and has wonderful creative vision, but is consistently unable to keep up with timelines, so the work on each project has had to be picked up by others in order to deliver on time. It's becoming the norm now and he's very blasé about it.
