EY completely agree. First firm I worked for..before I started I was invited to the holiday party. Best party ever.. people were very funny and very mellow drunks. Heard next day people were passed out in bushes at the country club where it was held. I went on many a business trip with these people for six years, partied hard, worked hard and laughed my ass off. They made audit, FDIC work a blast. 20 years later still friends with most.

Went on vacation with a couple friends and they’d actually never heard of FIRE.

What is the deal with managers + up who have calendar blocks all day long and are constantly in “busy” mode? It makes it almost impossible to schedule necessary meetings bc it’s never clear when there is an actual conflict, and I try to avoid pinging questions when someone’s in red mode to be respectful of them being in a call or needing to focus but when it’s all day I just have to ignore it. End rant lol

Current employee refers two candidates.

Candidate 1 comes with a glowing review from employee as a great person to work and interact with, has a good resume, but seems quiet and reserved during interview.

Candidate 2 interviews really well, resume is similar enough to Candidate 1, but employee says this candidate's day-to-day personality is quiet and withdrawn.

Do you hire the person who interviewed better or the person who your existing employee says fits better on the team?

I read a lot of complaints in regards to how Big 4 treat their employees.
I genuinely feel that I’m at a firm that treats their employees better than Big 4.
Moss Adams gave employees restorative pay, gave us $150 for having to cancel the Christmas party, and (rumor has it but not confirmed) bonuses are being accrued and expected to pay out as normally scheduled. DM me if you’re tired on Big 4 culture and would like to consider a switch.
