Considering joining one of the big 4s… which one in your opinion has the greatest culture?

These firms are HUGE. To the extent that there is a monolithic culture at any firm, it’s going to be very similar at all four. The variance will be on a group level, driven by the partners and types of projects.

Do you mind me asking why?

Really depends on the practice sadly. If you like the people who interview you, that’s a good sign.

Ya, know which practice you're specifically applying to, then ask "How's x practice in y city" and you'll get a better answer.

I really liked the people in my practice at EY. The firm’s behavior during the pandemic and the internal processes and systems, not so much (and no I wasn’t one of the people downsized).

Haha! Good luck! I came from Big 4 (KPMG) -- "boys club" culture, very hierarchical, and if you're not a straight hire from college, you will feel old. Good luck! I hope you survive it. :D

Def not D

Did you leave D for BCG?

Big 4 and culture seem to be joke ; I would say do your homework in more detail.

Having been at 3/4... if you're at all specialized in any industry, then it's very much up to your individual group. If you're a fresh hire out of undergrad, then looking ONLY at culture, ignoring exit opps, pay, biz school prospects etc., I think KPMG > EY > Deloitte > S&. Actually it's more like KPMG is #1, EY #2, Deloitte #3, S& would be #1000000000.
