Which consulting firm do you think has the best culture? It's all arbitrary but I'm curious what people say.

Accenture I love it here very nurturing

Worked at D, PwC, EY and now ACN. ACN so far has the best culture imo. Followed by EY, then PwC then D. Each has its pros and cons. ACN can be a bit loosely structured, EY too rigid and strict, PwC filled with douches, Deloitte backstabbing and competitive.

And Accenture, please don't take that the wrong way. That's my very narrow exposure to accentures culture. I'm describing my experience with a few Accenture employees so it's clearly not significant enough to represent the company culture as a whole.

@D1 it was only earlier this year when we were laying people off. I actually thought it was better than how Deloitte and PwC just had mass layoffs even for people staffed on projects. At Accenture we only got rid of people who were on the bench for 6 weeks. Also this policy excluded first year analysts. It's not like that all the time. I was on the bench for 3 months from July till October and obviously didn't get fired.

its the only one i've worked at, but i like the culture at pwc, its very supportive and encouraging. i like that we get paired with three different career mentors at different levels in their own career.

If you find other ways to keep busy like BD work or internal projects or training. In other words have purpose remain invaluable.

Based off my experiences from recruiting, interviews, friends, etc I feel like Deloitte and EY have a good culture. A lot of the ppl I've met at Accenture were serious and couldn't hold a conversation. MBB and Pwc i have minimum exposure to so no real input.

Deloitte ACN PWC the worst

KPMG the best 😜💁‍♂️💁🏼

Back on the market and I’m coming to find two things: 1. Less desirable agencies are the ones who want people back on-site soon, with no wiggle room for remote work. 2. These same agencies want to pay salaries based on COL in the city where the agency is based even if you’re working/living from another market in the interim. Example: Midwest based agency paying Midwest salaries to folks living in places like NY, SF, LA. 🧐🧐🧐🧐
