Is GT better than big 4 in terms of culture and career progression?

I'd assume that most mid tier firms have faster/more opportunities for career progression. However I think culture wise it varies not only firm to firm, but office to office

It is tougher in mid size firms.

I think the culture is better here. I left big four tax. Partners care, people are nicer, no complaints.

I'm at Crowe and unless you really mess up the progression is really based on tenure, this might be cause I'm at a smaller office though. It's also the same way in our risk and tax dept

It depends on what you define as career progression. If you ever want to make a move out of public B4 has a much larger network and more prestigious name. More exit opportunities. It may be easier to make partner at mid tier of that's what you want.

Not sure why you would think that career progression would be easier at mid tier. It's pretty much guaranteed at big 4 each year unless you are terrible - at least in assurance. Are you talking about a different service line? If not, please explain.

People get weeded out in my office if they can't put in the work and don't show progression. Now do I have direct partner access as I need it? Yes and plenty of mentorship. But that depends group to group and not even office to office.

So I was talking about the culture - people get really mean at times and will throw you under the bus since they know they have power. Additionally, is it easier to be individual in mid tiers since you don't have a huge crowd?

Even the nicest person in the world has and will again throw someone under the bus. We are self-serving beings.

Either way you tend to work in groups so you can't be an individual per say. Groups are smaller sure but they are there nonetheless.

Been thinking about this a lot lately, please let me know if my thought process is wrong. Long-term career earnings is severely hindered by staying in Big 4. If the end goal is to make partner, than that might not hold true, but C-suite execs make just as much as partners. Otherwise, not being in industry limits your exposure to company equity options which offer huge payouts as opposed to the bonuses Big 4 give out

Are any first year associates thinking about post-big law career shifts already? If so, what? I paid off my student loans in December, so I don’t feel stuck, but would like to build a nest egg for a couple of years if I can possibly sustain it. To be frank, while I want to do a good job because I care about my reputation, I don’t feel at all motivated by the work and think I may have made a mistake pursuing big law when the culture (and the relentless grind) just seem so pointless to me.
