its not firm specific, u just have 2 fine the good pepes at any firm. we have great people in the group i am in at ey. we also have the opposite in another group at the same office. As. a senior manager, if my people leave my first thought is how did i fail them.

Wow that level of ownership is very powerful; if you don't mind me asking, are you in Tax within EY? I am applying to tax intern roles at all the firms and was hoping for some insight.

Hi PWC OP! I’m in tax at EY (and also play a role with on campus recruiting) so I will give you a broad overview on EY culture and also things I’ve heard about NY. EY is my favorite big 4 and what I’ve often said is the only public accounting firm I’d work for because I love the culture so much. Overall, I’d say the warm culture of togetherness and inclusiveness permeates across offices and (which is special). NY can be brutal for public accounting in general, but my peers there still love working there. In addition, most offices let you try different areas of tax before you choose your practice/group, so if you do network with EY, ask them about it to see if their office allows tax rotations. Also, have edited to say my experience is in NON-FSO tax. FSO tax is a completely separate function of the firm

Thanks for the input; I have heard about the diversified staff group from EY events on campus. It seems really cool; ideal for those that are unsure of what group they want to be in!

At a career fair on Friday I was talking with Deloitte employees and was setting them up to talk about the culture. A tax manager I talked with kept saying "people will be people" and beating around the bush, he wouldn't even give me a HR canned answer. My friend also works there and said that the people on her floor are not the most welcoming either. Should I still consider Deloitte, or just apply for the rest of the big 4?

I'm in final rounds w a large tech company (interview already scheduled), but I saw that the company just removed the job posting I'm applying for on their website. Does this mean they already selected a candidate and I'm wasting my time? Or does it mean they have enough candidate selection for the final round to where if I have an offer, I'm less able to negotiate since the company has a lot of back up candidates. First time leaving consulting so all of this is new to me.
