That crazy EY manager post has got me wonder which places with robust and dynamic economies relatively has the best working culture. Western Europe promotes work-life balance but seems like there is lots of labor inflexibility and institutional stagnation. East Asia arguably more dynamic but stereotypically overworking. Or the American or the Australian etc culture? Any takes? Obviously subjective since we all prioritize and value factors differently
FYI for those who’s curious about salary here, I think the LinkedIn tool is not bad. Screenshot below. Also anyone up for networking in Amsterdam hit me up :)
Came into consulting with the shark mentality and wanted to be an “over-achiever”. Now, I’m realizing that the juice just isn’t worth the squeeze (cringe). I just feel down considering my firm is not issuing any raises or bonuses to non promotion folks. Therefore, getting the same reward as the dude riding the bench with a <50% uti. The middle ground is the place to be quite honestly. Can anyone shed light on this pls?

For the first two years at PwC do you get 10/month of vacation? Then starting your third year do you accrue 15/month?
To be completely honest I really find auditing to be boring and tedious. I really only learn how to audit better versus learning how a business really operates/ how to do the job of a controller or CFO. The only part of the job I really liked was talking things over with the client and with the WFH that’s at a stop. Will things get better for me as a senior or should I consider hoping out when things look better?

For those who have gotten degrees and certifications, how do you find the time to study with kids? Mine are not in school yet and don’t go to daycare. Hubby doesn’t work from home and we don’t have anyone to help with childcare either. I’m already working late hours and waking up early to get work done.
My wife is a finance manager. At the start of the new year, she got a job at a small tech firm locally for 25% raise. It's owned by private equity. While they did say it was long hours, she's been working 8a to 10p each workday, with team calls from 6-10p. She's also been working 6 to 8 hours Sunday. What do you all advise she do? How can she manage expectations when her boss is VP of finance, reporting to CEO, who is over promising? Last person they hired quit after 2 days.
