Alright, need a sanity check. What does the average work day look like for everyone? 8 am to 6:30 pm in client office and something like 1 to 3 hours of night calls, Monday through Thursday. Insane???
We often talk about European OOO msgs in this group, turns out there are challenges. "As costs ballooned, officials were "stunned" by the French taking a month vacation each summer." www.yahoo.com/news/budget-overruns-culture-clashes-over-121033257.html
A&M fishes do you feel pressure while taking vacations as your comp is tied to billable hours? Also what’s the policy on remote work, can people work from another country (eg. Canada or Europe ) for a few days if they are supporting during US work hours. Big 4 is strict about international work location, so just curious.
Hey fishes! Need some guidance here, currently working at a top 10 firm, I like the IT audit work, I enjoy my team, but I’m feeling like this will be my last busy season here as I want to try some place different + get better pay. My main question is… should I go for a big 4 for 1-2 years to gain that experience in my resume and then jump to industry or should I jump to industry directly? TIA

Any PwC Managers have any advice on navigating the culture. I joined recently and already had to pull a director aside regarding how she was talking to me?

When your client understands what you do better than your team lead and asks to extend you and your team lead asks, why are they asking that? First time for everything...
I don’t have a degree but consulting experience at Big 4. I learned you can get a bachelor degree in wine tasting, do you think it would still be accepted as a regular bachelor degree for future jobs?
Thinking about applying to be a senior 1 in the Tampa market. Any idea on the salary? It's for assurance. At PwC.
Guilty! Being the interviewee recently has taught me what I failed to do as an interviewer. 1Outline your hiring process/timeline. Simple but oft overlooked. Tell them how many people they’ll be meeting, when u aim to shortlist, when u aim to hire. Communicate- someone is probably intensely waiting for any word. They may miss other opportunities for u. 2 Closure! Surprising how many places don’t let u know when they’ve moved on from u! 3 Can u offer helpful advice for them? 4 Reply to all.
How people with small kids are managing WFH? I have 18 month old and both of us are in consulting. It's getting almost impossible to keep kid engaged and work. Interested what other parents are doing
DoorDash recruiter reached out for a role, proceeded to send me the analytical exercise a few days later. Prior to her sending me the exercise I realized I don’t want to go forward with the interview process as I’m too slammed with work at the moment. Can I just tell her that I no longer want to move forward? Will there be negative consequences?
Looking to create a tool we can use for stakeholder relationship tracking. We want to be able to hear a clients name, look them up in the tool, see info about their role and department, and see which of our consultants have worked with them before and on what projects. Trying to think of an easy to use, interactive tool beyond something like excel. What’s something you’ve used for this before? Don’t think we’ll be going as far as purchasing a license for a CRM software
