I think it all depends. My office has a female managing partner and the majority of regular partners are female as well, but another office I worked for previously was the opposite and definitely had more of a boys club environment. I must admit I much prefer having women in charge than men...

I think overall accounting is more supportive of women than other fields. Some of my girlfriends in another field work in a "good ole boy" environment. I feel lucky.

Partner in my tax group is a woman. And leadership tried to be advocate for women and their advancement.

My group has a high concentration of female partners and EDs. When I was making my decision on which path to choose I reached out to them and found that my group does make it very easy for women with families to achieve that level by being understanding and flexible. That has really been my experience so far and have been here a year, 2 kids and was rated a 4

This year has been insane. 200+ hours every month. July has been really been slow though. I’m at like 35 billable hours this month. I’m a first year in transactional and staffed on deals that haven’t picked up yet. I’m hesitant to reach out for work because I don’t want to be overwhelmed ... but I also am getting anxiety because I literally have nothing to do all day. Anyone else in this boat?
