I have a feeling PWC is better culture wise and with WLB but not exactly sure what things are like at EY. Can anyone give some insights on what the culture and WLB is like within these companies? Not exactly sure what decision to make. I’m leaning more towards EY because of title upgrade, comp package and the nature of the work but I’m also scared because of WLB and culture concerns. EY PwC

Just curious.
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA?

Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
