Worst in what way? You gotta qualify that. But, KPMG.

How can someone really know unless they have worked at all 4?

I worked at all except KPMG. I would rank from best to worst- PWC, Deloitte, then EY. I worked at Deloitte the longest. They had the best managers and technology. I really think it depends what team you end up. There are good and bad teams in all the big 4.

Worst is what way? It really depends on the group, people you work with and what you want in your career, right. I don’t think there is the worst or best big four tax practice. Only the one works best for you

Why do we need a gun to our head to answer this? Seems like a pretty extreme opening to a question. I’ll pass 👍

So many factors - office, service line, subjective definition of “worst”, etc. Each Big 4 has pros and cons. I would do research on which Big 4 is dominant in the market you are applying to. If it’s a big city like NYC, then they may all be pretty dominant. Then I’d look at the top dominant firms and try to understand who is on the team, what experience they have and if they are people who you want to work with. No one here will be able to do all of the above for you. People jump firms when they are unhappy. People who worked at 3 of the 4 of them are huge red flag under performers. Do your own recon through LinkedIn and interviews.

Is Accounting really worth it on the long term? I noticed a lot of people are ok with their salary but not necessarily in terms of WLB.

Hi Fishes, I am basically stuck while taking a decision. Two weeks back, I have joined the big 4. Now I have an offer from capgemini offering me around 4 L more that my current ctc.

Late night thoughts - I cannot figure out when to throw in the towel on consulting. I just switched to a Big 4 role two weeks ago and I feel like my stress has shot up significantly. I hate traveling for work and I want a role with good WLB. I know two weeks is nothing and I feel like a failure for giving up so easily but I feel I'm just not made out for this kind of life. Should I just suck it up and stick it out for two more years for the exit opps?

Thoughts on going from a big 4 MC to a lower tier consulting firm at SM level for a good pay bump?

Have offers from Firm A (5k employees 1B revenue) & Firm B (2k employees 200M revenue) to come in as a senior manager and create/build a new, niche tax practice similar to what I played a pivotal role in building at a B4. My biggest issue at B4 has been the big firm BS (hard to get things approved, slow moving, high performers not rewarded appropriately). What’s the right balance between the resources/client base of a larger firm and the autonomy/pay of a smaller firm? How small is too small?
