Getting recruited for EY’s PCS (private client) dept. can anyone share their experience? What’s the day to day like
So I started at a new role at a known retailer about 2 months ago. I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments. While I understand it takes time to adjust to the culture, its seems like all I have witnessed is resistance to change. I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?

I’ve received some feedback about it lately, so wondering if you 🐠 had any advice
