Do you wear your Big 4 quadfecta as a badge of honor? Which firm gave out the best swag? Which firm had the best perks while you were there? Which firm had the worst-tasting coffee? Which firm had the worst partners? Did you “achieve work/life balance” at any of them?

  1. Fuck all big 4 in the ass….blood suckers…they will kill their employees trying to save a buck..

    1. I do worked for one of the big for,but I resigned before completing proportion period,instead of big four suppose to be named as big 4 nightmare.
