KPMG has it's pros and cons. The infrastructure is terrible here. Progression and opps to jump to other service lines are a lot better than Deloitte and EY from what I know.

EY by far, they sacrifice actual talent and skills for diversity

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

I’ve received several take home assignments that clearly use real company data or give a good indication to a company’s future strategy.
