What’s better being at a small consulting firm working with people you like and solid culture but lower pay. Or going to a bigger firm (Accenture, Big Four, etc.) with more competitive higher pay?
Mamas, my husband is having a really hard time at work. He’s been very stressed out, the culture is very toxic, and he’s a very passionate person so he’s having an extremely hard time. He’s working nonstop, we have a 6 mon old son, and I’m working full time as well. I talk him down from the ledge everyday, he’s decided to switch jobs but right now isn’t having luck. He’s extremely smart, just isn’t fitting in at this place. Thinking of setting up some time to talk to a psychiatrist..cont
Happy Friday 🐟!!! A lot of us complain about our desi culture, desi parents, aunties, etc.. What are some of the things we like or appreciate about our culture?
What’s the culture like at Amazon? All the articles and most of the employee reviews about it being toxic are pointing towards the fulfillment centers and the tech side of the house. Is the corporate side just as bad? I see a lot of x consultants in corporate roles and wouldn’t expect one to jump from one firing pan to an even hotter one. Thoughts?
Better culture for m&a tax in NY - pwc or EY?
Hey Fishies I accepted an offer from PwC SDC. Can anyone throw some light on what kind of a shift in work culture I'll expect? Currently working in EY India. YoE 6 and tech stack Microsoft based.
I’m burnt out. Biglaw six years and got pushed out. Now at a midsize firm. I work more than I used to and getting paid 1/3 less. Work is not bad at all and the firm culture is great. I never wanted to become a lawyer to start with but now I’m stuck here. If I switch to a completely new profession, I would have to start over. My hubby’s financials are not great and I feel I’m obligated to stay at my firm job to make it work. I really don’t know what to do...
I am still learning and my sr manager is really making me feel stupid. And maybe its just my firms culture but I am on a new engagement and have no senior above me to guide me, the work stream is just me and my senior manager. She had asked me a question about the engagement as to why we are doing something and she got mad because this was the second time she was telling me. I know she is really upset with me but this is all new and I have no one to go to for regular questions. I feel so dumb

I'm a recent graduate and previously was very close to going to Wall Street. Even though mgmt consulting and banks attract a lot of similar people, I've noticed a HUGE difference in the culture of online communities for the two. Banking (WSO, Insta IB meme pages, etc) are all about money and prestige with a "fuck you" frat bro vibe, whereas consulting ones have a friendlier tone, less money/prestige focus and more liberal political beliefs. I just find this all interesting, any thoughts on it?
Got offer to move to financial services start up- way better culture and slightly better salary + unlimited remote work so I can travel. Think I'll be happier there but also really want an MBA (cont.)
Any recommendations for desi therapists (or anyone who can understand the desi culture)? Going through a ‘very desi situation’, felt it would be better to talk it out with someone who can understand, if not relate

All my MBB 🐠, is there anyone who would be willing to chat with me about your role and experience, the company culture and work and potentially work with me to see if I am a good fit and also if you would be willing to refer me? I am currently a Senior Consultant at EY.

Considering a position at a known tech brand...how much stock options should I be asking for/how does it work?
Let’s see how entry level accounting salaries have increased (or not) over time. I started in September of 2014 with a mid-market firm in tax at $53k in a non-HCOL city. Your turn..
My little girl now has an option of returning to school in-person through her spring break. My spouse is a high risk + extra careful when it comes to all things pandemic. I'm worried about my little kid's lost year & want her to go to school & interact with her friends, learn, etc. She's been home since March. Schools are being extra careful, maintaining all precautions, etc. But I can't convince my spouse to agree to this. Anyone else in a similar situation?
I’ve been feeling really down about my job lately. Last night I randomly applied for a job at EY-P that I thought I perfectly fit the bill for. Within 12 hours I was reached out from a recruiter and was asked to schedule an interview. Even if it doesn’t go much farther It feels like the confidence boost I needed to know there are other options out there for me.
tired- hiring manager agreed on remote work (and being in office/client-side as needed) —> present case study —> hiring manager and team likes case study -> HR said I didn’t get job b/c I want remote
Thoughts on MUH-TAY-ZIK | HOF-FER in San Fran?
Had 3 phone interviews + one in person. Went well. But now they lowered title/experience needed, I assume to find someone cheaper. How can I tell them I'd still consider w/o seeming desperate (I am)?
