In today's episode we discuss what causes stress at the big 4 accounting firms.
Do you hear all the rumors about the big 4 being stressful but aren't sure why they are stressful. We go over several factors in today's podcast episode.
Do you think all the stress just relates to the long hours at PwC, KPMG, Deloitte or EY? No, that is just a symptom of the larger problems.
Long hours do cause stress but that isn't the only reason stress exists at the big 4.
Some of the reasons that stress exists are:
1. Lack of mentorship
2. Underbidding by other accounting firms
3. Lack of goals and expectations
4. Long hours
5. Face time at the office (No, not the app)
6. Poor project management
7. Client focus
8. Client demands
