We all know that New York is a central hub for many businesses. As a professional or someone who is interested in the consulting niche, Big 4 offices in this location and everything else they do here might be something you should be aware of.   

The Big 4 (Deloitte, PwC, EY, KPMG) have a head office and other offices all across the state of New York. I’ve also found that each head office of the Big 4 companies is managed by a partner who looks after their client relationships and plays a vital role in internal structuring and management.

In this read today, I’ll let you know everything about the Big 4 companies operating in NY and compare their:

  • Total number of offices 
  • Location of head office
  • The principal or partner working there
  • Work culture

1. Deloitte 

Deloitte has a total of 5 offices spread across New York City and some other boroughs in the state. 

One of the Deloitte offices is located at 2 Jericho Plaza (on the 3rd floor)! Jericho is a hamlet in Nassau County, which is in the western part of Long Island (and bordered by Queens County, NY). (Source)

I came to know that Rochester is another hub of Deloitte. Here, the Deloitte office is situated at One Bausch & Lomb Place. 

Other offices of the firm in NY are in Buffalo and Hudson Square, Manhattan!

The head office of Deloitte is in the New York City (NYC). It is located at 30 Rockefeller Plaza (41st floor). The office is open 24 hours a week, from Monday to Sunday. 

Before that, the head office of Deloitte LLP was once situated near the top of the World Trade Center. (Source)

Deloitte offices are usually managed by Managing Partners or Directors.”

The head office is managed by Roger G. Arrieux, Jr. He is also responsible for overseeing other Deloitte US head offices and largest offices. (Source)

The work culture at Deloitte New York office is well known for its: 

  • Inclusivity 
  • Productivity
  • Advancement Opportunities
  • And more…

According to a former Senior Consultant at Deloitte (NY) on Indeed, “My time at Deloitte was perfect. Nothing to complain about. Culture is employee friendly. Fantastic colleagues. Deloitte tries to keep improving its policies and practices constantly.” (Source)

2. PwC

PwC has quite a few offices in New York State that are located in:  

  • Albany 
  • Buffalo 
  • Melville
  • Rochester 


Besides the above offices, PwC also has a head office. It is near Madison Avenue, New York City.

The office has working hours from 8 a.m to 6 p.m. – Sunday to Friday!

After some research, I came to know that David Pauls is the managing director of the NY head office in New York City. (Source)

He joined the firm as a director in 2005 and has been serving it since then. 

Well, that’s quite a long time!

PwC’s work culture in the NY offices is definitely something to talk about!

If you are a young professional, PwC offers great learning opportunities to help you gain more knowledge and skills. (Source)

The work-life balance here is just “OK.” This is because, during the peak seasons, such as annual audits, you may have to work extra hours.

But here’s a good one – PwC New York knows how to appreciate their top performers. If you excel in your role, it will make sure you know it.

It’s a great motivator, isn’t it?

3. EY

Just like Deloitte and PwC, EY also has a huge presence in New York with multiple offices across the state. 

It has a total of 5 offices in New York, covering:

  • Buffalo
  • Jericho
  • New York City
  • Chelsea
  • Rochester


These offices are located in smart spots to help clients and offer various services in this busy state.

EY’s Head Office in New York is located at One Manhattan West (an economic borough of NYC) near the Hudson Yards district. It officially opened its doors in 2021 and has over 12,000 professionals. (Source)

This is a big deal for EY because Manhattan West is the central hub for its operations in the US!

Herb Engert is the captain of the ship at EY New York head office. He has been serving as the Managing Partner of the firm since 2018. 

At EY New York, work culture is a big deal!

I interviewed some of its employees and found that they really like working here. 

You may ask – why?

It is because EY has an inclusive and supportive culture. The firm believes in taking care of its people and provides various promotional opportunities. (Source)

But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows – some employees say they end up working for long hours without much time for personal life.


It’s no surprise that KPMG also has firmly set its roots in New York. Here, the company has a network of 8 offices in:

  • Albany
  • Amsterdam
  • Buffalo
  • Kingston
  • Long Island
  • Melville
  • Nassau
  • NYC


The head office of KPMG New York is situated at 345 Park Avenue (right in the heart of Manhattan).

And if you want to visit the office, you’ll be surprised to learn that it is open 24/7 – every day of the week.

Yesenia Scheker Izquierdo is the leader at the KPMG New York office. She has two important roles:

  • KPMG New York Office Managing Partner
  • New York Market Hub Leader


The work culture of KPMG in the NY offices is an interesting mix, to say the least.

Some employees find it to be demanding (with long working hours). 

But there’s a reason for it! KPMG constantly focuses on securing the next project, which keeps the employees on their toes.

But here’s a good part – KPMG provides a lot of support for learning. It also provides competitive pay and benefits to its employees.
