It’s extremely slow moving so as long as your reviewers are semi-competent (which for EY is a surprisingly difficult ask) you can generally plan out your schedule fairly well with few late nights due to fire drills. If your reviewers aren’t competent, then your life is constantly putting out fires caused by people above you who don’t know how to do their jobs. TP, at least at EY, also pays terribly so anyone worth their salt exits to industry as soon as they hit manager for anywhere from 50% to 100% pay raise.

I think it’s a smaller team so you’ll probably have a lot of work (basing this on the fact that like a handful of TP people do the work on any deals I’ve seen)

Hi, pls tell me which is better capgemini or Deloitte India(DI) in terms Job Security?

I graduated from law school in 2007, went to big law and was laid off in 2009 due to the Great Recession. I went back to school and got my LLM in tax, after a stint at big 4, I got back into big law but was asked to start over as a first year. Years later, close to partnership and being mentored in that direction, I lost my job due to something completely out of my control that I can’t get into. I always wanted to make partner, but I’m struggling at my new firm with not enough work (p. 1)
