My experience was it started out fantastic... Best job ever, then they started to stretch people thin to fill hours for clients. Never saw my kid anymore, missed weddings, birthday parties, class reunions... Then policies started to change less incentives, ie cell reimbursement drops, meal changes, no more Amex P card, region base Counselors so I got this garbage absent one that made himself available once every 3-4 months, never replied to emails. Then on top of that audit started to slow down bad, making getting reimbursed longer an harder. Disputes over 3cents, really, but it's all good. In the end consulting is a move up or move out... I don't like the path into what management entails and so on, so I chose to stick with my niche passion; ultimately of hire value than being some manager at EY. It was an amazing FIRM to work for, now it's just another firm in the bunch with a forgotten concept of work life balance.

I’ve been in a smaller firm for a month or so now, and I am struggling to find allies or even collegiality. I have had multiple conversations with other associates who shit talk each other, and say things like A: “don’t talk to B because they don’t know anything…come to me instead” then hear things about A never having peoples backs/stabbing people in the back. It’s making the actual “working” part of the job so tedious because I never know who to go to for help without making myself vulnerable.
