quitting a big 4

Question: i have a friend who has worked in a big 4 for 2 years. She is very frustrated working there mainly because others are getting promotions purley based on sleeping with the right people ( you know what i mean).

Now, this in itself does not peeve her off; people are justified to as they please as long as its not illegal. What really gets her is that those managers getting favours are dumping all the work on her and giving very generous conditions ( leave at 4:30 pm etc, whilst she works until 7pm- doing their work) to those on the team that are performing extracurricular services to the boss. Thus, this is impacting her and she wants out.

Should she quit? This is something that has not just happened once, she inform me, and is systemic culture of the firm.

I suggest that because she has done 2 yrs, she should walk but not goto another big 4, but rather try industry firms.

Why can't your friend sleep with one of us partners in BIG4 to make her life easy?

this post sounds trolly to me - but if not, this is certainly a major disciplinary matter if not illegal; don't quit, get evidence, go to HR..

This happens more often than you think. Tell your mate to name and shame the Firm. Perhaps even name the partner in question.

Absolutely. Go to industry or a small firm with the right values and progression based on performance where it matters

In the short term, name and shame the managers and partners involved. Go to HR or press if necessary and you may be some compensation. (The big 4 firms hate public attention .. look at the lehman's incident)

At least 50% Big 4 Partners are on their 2 and some 3rd marriages. Would make a cool article.
