I have been recently interviewing at many firms these past couple of weeks. I feel like a lot of talent mangers/ Managers have been low balling hours. BDO/Baker Tilly said an audit senior can expect to work 55-60 hours. I find that hard to believe.

I wish people would stop offering to give out referrals left and right to people they don’t know. Even when we are understaffed, a poor performer is rarely better than having no worker at all.

2022. You’ll find out who these people are fast

Definitely a lie at Baker Tilly. Some offices are now at a 60hr weekly minimum requirement. We are so severely short staffed, most Seniors I see are usually putting in 65-70hrs per week

I don’t doubt our recruiting folks say that but echoing bt1: we are very short staffed. Busy season is going to be brutal this year.

In my experience, my current firm truly doesn't allow over 50 hrs/week during busy season (compared to my time at KPMG, where 60/70hr weeks were normal). Dm me if you have any questions!

Tax is true. Not sure about audit.

Don’t ask recruiters or hiring manager, ask members on the actual team, they are less likely to lie.

Not a problem.

What’s hard to believe about that? I think 55 to 60 busy season hours is the norm for non big 4 firms.

Woah. I’m at a 300 person firm and our expectation is 55 hours. Is there a week here or there where someone goes over 60? Yes. If we see it happen more than a couple times we nip that shit in the bud quickly.
