What font do you use for your working papers?

Ed. note: This might be the most important question in the profession.


Hey guys,

      A newbie at Big4 has this dumb question. What font/font size do you use? Arial and Calibri are on my list.

     Or if you are senior and above, what kind of formatting makes the working papers more readable? Color-coded? White/grey/white? Trying to establish a good first impression since I'm on my first job right now.

      Thanks everyone~~
