Deloitte folks - can anyone speak to the LA office culture? How is the community feel? A lot of disparate local projects or just depends?

Depends...we staff nationally but you’ll see some level of focus on the west coast in the same way that the New York office has some gravitational pole on the east coast but people still end up on projects on the other side of the country if they follow a certain group of partners or just get staffed on something that needs help. The LA office doesn’t have a strong office culture IMHO due to the fact that people live everywhere in the metro area and therefore don’t go to the office as much. So not much of a community feel beyond the analyst groups

I feel the same about KPMG LA’s office culture. Wish it was different but I guess I’m a part of the problem since it would take me 45 min - 1 hr to go into the office on Fridays. I still love living here though

I lead a very small team. One of my employees was recently upset that a teammate was promoted, despite them being here longer. They are interested to get promoted themselves. This person's review is coming up and I really don't want to promote them. I don't think they are there yet, despite tenure. Someone could argue they are, though, suppose. If I don't promote in this round, they'll likely quit. I'm so torn on this. Would you stick to growth markers or promote for the sake of culture?
