What team? Adelaide is an amazing place to live but pretty limited in terms of opportunities.
Big 4 in general is pretty limited unless you're in strategy or the traditional services (audit, tax).

Beautiful town with great cycling/wine. It’s tiny though (compared to Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne). Some defence industry, but not much corporate action. Exits would be pretty limited.

What you should do when dealing with a very toxic worker that keep on sending passive aggressive messages to you as well as in group chat and email.
Things like when you answer his question he respond: I know that
Or when he keeps on saying my change requests were just minor in group meeting but actually not.
And keep on saying how hard he works when he clearly wasn’t and already underperformed compared to an intern level.

How to not let this toxic co-worker not poison me any further?
