Just received an offer from EY-Parthenon TSE. Can anyone provide insights into the workplace culture and working pace? Can I expect to work 60+ hours per week regularly? Is there significant travel for a junior manager level?

How often do junior managers engage with clients directly? I am a black man with pierced ears: partner didn’t seem phased, but im still concerned about career progression. Moving from US to UK, worried about UK being more conservative and less open.

Welcome to the team! Do you know if you are joining a specific competency?

If you are on the post deal, you will have 100% client interaction and you may need to travel to the client site (both domestically and internationally). Travel has been significantly reduced after Covid.

If you are in the pre-deal it will be mainly through management meetings/calls.

Hours depend on the type of the project. The shorter the project, the longer the hours. I would say 50hrs per week is my average (excluding commuting and any breaks).

The team is very diverse and has a friendly culture (i am not British myself). I wouldn't be concerned about career progression. You will be rated on your project performance and practice development contributions. As everywhere, the team that you will work with is the most important factor.

Not sure whereabouts you're moving from but London is one of the most open/liberal cities out there, especially when it comes to race. Having said that, I've never seen a man in the corporate world with an earring - take from that what you will

Let me be the first to welcome you to the team. Culture is very inclusive, but it’s a very large team, so can sometimes feel like you get lost in the crowd. Team is very diverse in terms of race, though style of dress can be on the conservative side. Working hours vary a lot with types of projects, pre deal is generally more intense, but on average well below 60 hrs.
