Honestly, work culture in general in most service based companies in India will always be poor with long and late hours. Product based is probably your best bet. Start ups totally depend on what they’re doing and what stage they’re into right now. Know friends working in some start ups where WLB is decent and learning is awesome. Some where WLB doesn’t exist and work is repetitive.

Depends on the company/team. Startups will generally have poor WLB and maybe higher pay

I am in sixth year at a top firm in Toronto. I’m considering lateraling to another firm that does very similar work to what I’m currently doing, essentially because I strongly dislike the culture at my current firm. If you have lateraled for a culture-related issue, what do you wish you had asked before signing? Do you think there is a way to truly suss out culture before working somewhere? I have several law school classmates at this new firm so will obv ask them.

I am currently a fund accountant and am thinking about jumping ship to a new firm. I’m at a small fund and although the culture and WLB are great, I can see that there is no opening for assistant controller coming any time soon. Is it a bad if I consider looking elsewhere when I’ve only been there for a year? I hear it’s a strong market for candidates so I don’t want to miss out on a potential better opportunity for my career. Greatly appreciate any input.
