My current team is so toxic and hurt my mental health so much that I have to go on LOA. The thought of going back soon is stressing me out. I want to stay at the firm but maybe switch to a different office location. Anyone know how hard/easy it is to transfer to a different office at PwC nowadays? Thank you!!

Same experience as you. I moved to business services and so much happier.


Is the “toxic” culture just at your engagement team for a specific client or is it the general office culture? Can you not just switch to a different team ? That will be a lot easier.
For switching office I’ve done it before from a small office to a big office but I did it for business reasons. At the end of day it all comes down to business needs, like if you are a senior work in industry A and the office you are wanting to transfer need seniors that have experience in industry A then the transfer would likely be easy but at the same time if the office is a popular one that a lot of people want to go it will be somewhat competitive, you will need to be a high performer to be considered.
I would still try to solve the issue though, were you being treated unfairly or it’s just the overall culture is toxic but nothing personal to you ? Or is it a specific person or a group of people that you just don’t get along ? If its #1 you should let Hr know as that’s not acceptable, if it’s #2 have you spoken to other people on your team to see if they have similar feedback? If it’s #3 and there’s no way for you to reconcile that relationship and you just don’t feel comfortable working on the same team with them thenI would just request to be on a diff team (not necessarily a diff office)
Anyway my 2 cents is that don’t run away from problems, otherwise it’s going to follow you the next place you go. So what do you do if you don’t like the new office either ? You can’t keep making transfers between offices when issues come up.
Not sure if you have any other people you trust other than your RL, his/her response was definitely not helpful.


I tried talking to RL about the toxic team environment but they basically said I'm too sensitive/emotional. That's why I just want to be in a different team/environment when I get back.

SA1, sorry, I would rather not go into detail since someone might be able to identify me. I just know that it affects my mental health negatively and I really need an out.

Hi SM1, thanks for the feedback! It is one person (who is a level above me) that started it all and made the entire team hostile towards me. I think if I can get away from this person, it would help a lot. It's just the service line team that's toxic and not the entire office but I would like to stay in my service line. I don't even ask for much in a team as long as they're not out to get me or put me in a position where I can't just put my head down and just do my job.

Anybody work for Parallon HCA? I’m wondering what they pay you as a virtual registrar if you’re a non Hispanic versus if you are a Hispanic person. Starting they have offers for pay of $21.

I currently work in Revenue Cycle Management and I’m so unhappy. I started my career with BCBS processing claims and that was a dream. I would take a pay cut just to go back to that.

Suggestions?


Perspective. I’m retiring from the service and I’ve positioned myself decently to be competitive. I have a graduate degree pursuing a doctorate, LSSBB, ScrumMaster, SPHR, and PMI-ACP.

For anyone who needs to hear this today to keep motivation up- when I started my side gig, I didn’t know if it would ever take off. Wasn’t sure if digital courses are a thing.

Paid, fulfilled on spot. Of course you have to do the work, but the days when you feel like giving up, remember why you started
