Why? You want to show off to your buddies at KPMG? Not like it matters at your level anyways.

No links/articles to back it up but in Dallas tax they are known for overworking their people wayyyy worse than the other 3 (generally speaking, but the team you're on plays a part no matter what firm you are at obviously). I have some friends that worked there with horror stories.
