Based on other posts.. 50-60 at PWC seems rather low. Granted, could be office to office basis

Honestly if your firm isn't overly busy right now, that is a bigger red flag than if they are. The market is absolutely crazy and it makes sense why PwC (and all other big4) are so busy. There isn't anything wrong with the firm, just unreal market conditions. If HL isn't just as busy, I'd be worried when the market isn't as hot

It’s a pipe dream to work 50-60 hour weeks right now in FDD… come join and you’ll see.

I get interrupted a lot at work now that we are virtual. I don't feel like this happens to everyone else in my team as much, meaning folks tend to let them talk longer. So I've reduced my contribution and talk less. But then others make the same point I'm thinking and would normally have said. So now I just look like a silent non-contributor or someone who gets interrupted a lot. Office/team culture is generally good, respectful and peaceful. How do I change this? What can I do differently?

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
