It depends on your office and team. I work in a smaller office and don’t feel as though I’m constantly watching my back.

No. It is really not. Work hard. That is all.

You’re in advisory, it’s more competitive in that Los

Medium-large office. Lots of hard work, yes. But for the most part, if you put forth the effort, people will go out if there way to help you succeed... For the most part, you always have those few anywhere

Once you’re at any firm, working hard is essential for success so it’s not really that different than a non-B4. Getting an initial offer or trying to transfer to a niche service line is probably the most competitive it ever gets.

Yes. It is seriously no joke. The work we do is easy but THE LEVEL OF QUALITY that is expected is way higher than what was expected of you in college

Lol of course dude, no real company holds you to the college standard! I hope that’s not your baseline!

If you work hard you should be fine at most levels. The only time big 4 is really competitive is when you are trying to make partner. That’s when politics and how you play the game rears it’s ugly head.

Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

Didn’t realize my headphones weren’t connected and opened Spotify, clicked shuffle and my phone played “BABY YOU GOT A BODY LIKE A BENZ” at max volume on a quiet client floor. Happy Wednesday. 🤦‍♂️

So annoyed because upgrade to a bulkhead aisle seat in first class on my flight home but ALL I want is to sleep in my perfect exit row window seat I had so carefully selected... #consultingproblems
