How would you describe your firm's culture?

POLITICS. I think it is mostly about this in most firms.

The firm as a whole? Absent. It's inherently full of micro-cultures.

It also depends on the team

like

Deceptively cooperative in the face of relatively good natured competition. At least my team is. Hard to judge with not spending too much time at office.

Super friendly and great coworkers...but you better find the right roles if you want to move up.

like

Selectively "One firm". Only when it's mutually beneficial

Full of people that ask stupid fucking questions

Too broad a brush to say what's a 'company' culture. It varies a lot. With teams, services, etc.. And most people juml between firms. So, it's a cocktail.

Ha, that sucks ^

I meant within the strategy consulting teams... Many throw around the usual buzz words (meritocratic, people-centric, entrepreneurial, ... ) but from my experience jumping around the actual experience can be very different. I would say KPMG is cold, disorganized, and riddled with political traps. Anyone else care to share?

I think we hire uniquely down to earth and probably naive people at entry level. Definitely could be capable, but the firm exploits those qualities in every possible way.

Recently got an offer in LCOL/MCOL for a senior tax accountant role for 87k. 3 years of public experience and have been in industry for almost a year. Current job pays about 5k more, but is a bit of a rarity in my city. New job’s team and culture are more appealing to me. Is the offer reasonable or should I try to negotiate? I’ve never negotiated before so I’m scared they might pull the offer. Thanks!

Hi Guys,

I am in big dilema to choose between
Legato Health Technologies and a Service Based Company.
Both have offered same CTC, one is service based another is product based.
But read in Fishbowl only that job security isn't good at Legato, is it true ?
Your inputs on Legato's work culture, wlb, annual hike, job security etc will be very helpful in taking a decision.
Thank you in advance.

I’ve been super supportive of the lgbt community most of my life, but something about the whole Elliot Page thing rubbed me the wrong way and sent me down a bit of a rabbit hole. I have no problem with someone being trans; the thing that bothered me was the culture policing going on around deadnaming and shaming people. Then I found out about xenopronouns (ze/zem etc.) and it feels...odd. Like I’m playing this game of pretend where people get mad or shamed for not playing. Idk, I feel (cont)

My salary is $58,000 right now. Evaluations are coming up. If I don’t get a raise to a minimum of $60,000 what should I do? I enjoy the work environment here. Me and two others were the first “younger” generation to be at this firm and worked hard to develop a team culture. Would hate to leave it to get paid $2,000 but my husband and I have financial goals we want to meet. Also, I don’t have a CPA license yet.
