You guys laugh but American workers work harder to produce less. We could be enjoying a much better standard of living with more time off, more pay, and more respect.

Agencies are already being squeezed pretty hard financially. If you did wanna unionize, you’d wanna want. There’s no good solution until agencies can prove they’re worth the $$$. You probably don’t realize it, but your agency is probably charging 3x - 4x your salary to your clients...the model needs fixin’

To be clear, are you a midlevel who's tired of something?

Hi guys, I am due to start working at EY soon within audit. I will be commuting to the office by train when in the Birmingham office. This will be from Leicester. Usually if a commute is about 1.5 hours+, Mazars authorises hotels. Is there a similar policy at EY? When not in the office I would prefer to drive to clients, not sure if me being in Leicester affects whether they will tell me to suck up an extended commute? Would a mileage claim be from the office to the client? Thanks!
