Big 4, small office….

Hello there everyone, first time poster here,

I am getting my MAcc currently and received an internship in Assurance Services with EY for this Summer. The office has around 70-80 associates I believe; pretty small when compared to offices in large cities like LA, NY, Chicago, etc.

Of course I have read countless horror stories about interning and working full-time at Big 4, but I am curious if anyone has experience with smaller Big 4 offices and what I might expect? Longer/shorter hours? More time working with clients vs. getting coffee and supplies? More diversified work vs. simple, repetitive work? Either way I am going into this internship with a great attitude and work effort, but it would be nice to know if there might be some perks of working at a smaller office for Big 4.

I'd appreciate any advice or comments!
