I consistently see PwC mentioned regarding healthy WLB.

I don't know anyone at PwC who has decent WLB. Those are very few instances.

They are all equally mediocre for WLB. In all seriousness, it is highly dependent on practice and office leadership. 2 people at the same firm can have very different experiences.

I would extrapolate this to say it depends wildly on project / client team as well. My last project was **awful** and the client leadership team (like the PPMD and SMs) was part of that. My current project is a dream and I’m definitely planning to stay on this account as long as possible.

EY is pretty good tbh.

I’ve always heard KPMG/EY have the better cultures out of the 4, while Deloitte/PwC may pay a bit more but the culture isn’t as good. Having worked at 2 of these, I can see the validity to this

Good points S&1. My perspective comes from Advisory at KPMG and Deloitte. Didn’t consider the true consulting arms, but good to hear your culture is great

D was overtly toxic. KPMG was passive-aggressive af (with an antiquated tech stack to boot). Of course, your mileage may vary. Grateful for my time with both but B4 isn’t the be-all and end-all. 🍻

Finishing up my second year in audit (been through 2 busy seasons) and looking for a change. Thinking about a switch into advisory (either internal or another B4 probably), but torn between financial due diligence and accounting advisory. Would anybody be able to differentiate between those two? I’ve done some reading about the hours, exit ops, etc but interested in some first-hand experiences/what the actual differences in the work projects would be. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
