What are the personalities of each big 4? Is there really a differentiator in people across each big 4?

KP: partiers Uncle D: didn’t know there were parties in college/never left the library, and are kind of boring as a result EY: weirdly, just, way too attractive to not be modelling on the side P dubs: jocks, but like D1 varsity so they are smart enough to get through college with a solid GPA

“Holier than thou” and “we are the best, like duh” at PwC. “EY Nice”. I’ve worked at both and those are my impressions. Honestly love both firms, don’t know which type is better just yet. Both highly intelligent and professional atmospheres.

Each office and team is different. But if we are gonna generalize, aren’t all the firms Slytherin? Lol

Each Big 4 has the same variety of personalities.

This is 100% true. I have worked with multiple teams across the US and even a few internationally. I have seen first hand that some teams are awesome and other nit pick the crap out of everything and are always looking to point blame or protect themselves at the cost to others.

Long story short they are all the same

Started career at EY, with Deloitte now. I’d say they are the same in general, each office has its own personality though.

Why are we generalizing things? In any group, there would be all types of personalities.

I was a client of all 4 before deciding to return to public. EY was the only one I applied to (I’m not returning alum). EY treats their clients the best from my experience.
