Who here would switch firms for a better culture even if it meant less money?

I would seriously consider going to a firm that evaluates on performance/projects completed and doesn't require time entry for salaried professionals. I would love to be expected to complete X tasks in a period rather than X billable hours.


Like all things, there's a balance among critical success factors and pain points. I however after transitioning from PwC have experienced real positive cultural change and I'm better for it.


I agree that would be better, but I would not be willing to take a pay/resume hit for it


I made this move. Big four to regional and audit to advisory. Happy with my decision. Got a small pay bump but I'm sure longer term pay will be less.


Assume the better culture is real and say what that means to you. The less money isn't so much less that it completely changes your standard of living but less discretionary money to spend. This is not a discussion about any particular firms or BIG 4 vs. Not Big 4.

Your question implies that our culture is not up to par to your standards and the pay exceeds your expectations. What concerns you about Wipfli's culture?

Sorry it was read that way. I actually meant quite the opposite other than the time keeping personal issue I have I think our culture is above par but the pay might be a bit lower than some other firms.

How do you improve your documentation to not get so many notes back? I literally put everything I know plus what the client said but I still get questions back, like in that documentation is everything I know and there is nothing more I can give. I also try to word it in the most audit way I can think of to make it sound professional but no luck.

Joined EY early this year as a S2. We have no staff on our team, so the past few months have been nothing but grunt work. I’m expected to take responsibility for the projects but I’m spending 75% of my time rotating PDFs etc.

I’m not growing, actually I feel like I’m going backwards in my career. Yet on paper I’m getting paid a great salary and am supposed to be looking at manager next year.

Do I stay and drive myself crazy until manager? Or do I have some self respect and go where I can grow?
