Which Big 4 consulting is the best in terms of culture?

Agree with above, plus it depends what you value. I’ve worked at both D and PwC in multiple LoS - for me I’d say PwC has a better firmwide culture, but if you compare specific LoS or team then you may not find a big difference

This is too generic a question to give a worthwhile answer. It depends on your team and op unit, your projects, your situation in life.

My team at Deloitte is great. So I’ll say… Deloitte.

Dear all,

How's it like working for PwC India as SAP Functional Senior Associate?
I have a 5.3y work ex with ACN, as a FSCM consultant (L10 currently, was assured of a L9 effective March, but declined due to growing poor culture within ACN).
Got an offer from PwC India
Current TC: 9.5 LPA.
PwC Offered TC: 19 LPA.
IBM Offered Fixed: 17 LPA
IBM would be a smooth drive, but skeptical to join PwC given the WLB issues, as a lot of folks say.

Any thoughts, comments would be really helpful!

I worked for a top 10 firm. Moved to a small city and got a job w/a local tax firm. My pay is high, hours reasonable, and partners good. Problem is my clients are boring and need handholding w/basic bookkeeping. I miss the audited financials at the top 10. I feel like my skills are atrophying here. I don't know where to go since this city has no big 4 and only a few top 25 firms but they all pay less than what I make now. I prefer office life. Would you stay or look for fully remote positions?

I’ve been in a major struggle lately. The past 4 years I’ve had brain surgery, cousin committed suicide, mother had a stroke, and my grandmother fell and landed on her head last week.
