Honestly, it’s about working with the right SM and partner. They decide whether you like the firm and the work. The firm in general doesn’t matter.

Also, I am not even talking about laid back SMs. I’m talking about smart people who know how to run things smoothly than running like a headless chicken at the last moment and transfer the pressure down the chain.

I quite like Deloitte. That lime circle is so chic. Why the hate?

RSM1 oh I hate my project and team so I’ve been phoning it in. I spent 2 hours picking a font. If I like the team/ client/ project I would work 10-12 hours. Why?

Order goes like this: D, P, E, K (formerly Y). With scaling comp to match and keeping in consideration each vertical in each respective firm operates slightly independently.

Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
