Describe your firm's culture. For those of you that have worked for at least 2 of the B4, how are they different?

I worked at D before, PWC seems better but probably because I work with people who care about me.

PwC is very work hard play hard. People are generally very fun and relaxed/chill to work with... as long as you're getting the job done

This is more of a market/service line based question. I have worked at 2 different markets within PwC and seen a big difference. At the same time, I have interviewed for 2 different offices in Deloitte and that experience was different from one to another too

Deloitte and KPMG, but two different markets. Deloitte sucked, very cut throat and toxic culture (small office), whereas KPMG was more fun and relaxed (mid-size office)

^^same. Went from small office at Deloitte to a big office with KPMG and it's like night and day. My group at Deloitte was very cliquey and not accepting of anyone slightly different (ex. "I'm not a fan of your college football team because I went to a rival school" is a line that would get you blacklisted from social functions with the team).

How we can better serve the black community is on everyone’s minds. When it comes to fostering an industry that better nurtures, celebrates and promotes black talent what actual argument do we have for asking them to join? How can we expect them to want to partake? At its best this industry has a rare marginal influence on culture for the better. At worst it is one of the grossest reflections of consumerism and the very capitalistic culture that has oppressed black people for hundreds years.
