Lol it’s the #1 firm. I chose EY bcus of the ppl (I know that’s cliche), but I haven’t had the best experiences on the few teams/clients I’ve been on. And other minor things to that annoy me about EY...

Big liar 🤥

I’m sorry, I’m confused. What exactly am I lying about and what would be the purpose of me lying? 🤔

Why would you bother interviewing at all four?

Oh I see. Campus recruiting. And why did you choose EY?

What are benefits packages like outside the Big 4, particularly at MANGA (I guess that’s the new acronym with Meta), Salesforce, etc? I always assumed Deloitte’s benefits were on the more generous side but curious how we go up against some of these tech companies who also generally pay more. I’m paying $3796/yr for a family HDHP where the total OOP max is $7600 ($3800 for individual). D throws in $1k to HSA if you max personal.

Curious to hear from people (or general thoughts) who have gone from FAANG to Big 4 or Accenture Consulting. I always hear about the opposite. What are the driving factors? Is it worth the potential short term pay decrease, and the decline in WLB (I was previously at a mid-market consulting firm, so I was used to the ups and downs of WLB). I currently find myself getting bored regularly, not to mention the lack of true career direction here.

I used to be a top performer before rona but have been so unmotivated for the last year of WFH and my performance is tanking because of it.

WFH was okay at first, but the longer I'm stuck sitting at the same desk in my house alone all day the more meaningless everything feels to me. I don't know what the solution is, but I'm so tired
