    Tavares, Matthews, Marner, Nylander.

    I'd say Marner = Ernst & Young.
    They are stereotyped to hire the more sociable ones in comparison to the rest. Marner seems to fit that bill.

    Tavares = Deloitte
    Their employees are stereotyped as nerds who are not very out going compared to the others. Tavares definitely comes across as a quieter person who's not very outgoing and would probably agree with being called a hockey nerd.

    Nylander = KPMG. Easily the most criticized and made fun of, out of the big 4, even if it is just for memes. Also the smallest of the bunch overall by a long margin (Probably is different in Canada though). Is Nylander good at golf? They're stereotyped as a very pro golf firm.

    Matthews = PwC. Process of elimination

    Edit: how do you mark a thread OT?

    The cpao is a terribly run org. It is funny they test for performance management yet continually **** up the cfe process year after year. Should learn from how the cfa guys do it.

    We aren't accountants and don't know what the **** you are talking about. Odd that you'd think we would.

    Babcock is that accountant whose office is above a laundry mat. Uses an abacus and an accounting machine to calculate because that just the way he’s always done it, and says things like “internet? Accounts don’t go job the internet”

    Now let's compare them to McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King and Harvey's.

    Mcdonalds- Marner, always smiling, can still probably qualify for a happy meal.

    Wendy's -Nylander, great hair like Wendy.

    Burger King- Tavares, hangs out in the background, the whopper is always there when you need it.

    Harveys-Matthews, flame grills those goals and makes them your way.

    The power play could use some diversification.

    You know an abacus is very very accurate and more precise than most calculators in simple mathematics?

    I was recently at a conference for accountants in Ottawa. There were 2 accountants from one of the municipalities in and around Toronto (York/Peel not sure). Anyway the point is the both looked exactly like Kyle Dubas. Same hair same glasses. I think accountants in Toronto have found their hero in Dubas.

    Speaking of McDonalds, what is that weird ad campaign they’ve been running with the fat gym teacher and the burger flippers?

    Marner, Tavares, Nylander, Matthews = Grant Thornton. They get the job done, are just a cut below the elites, but paid about the same nonetheless, and thus more than what's commensurate with their skills, reputation, and achievements to date.

    I don't know anything about accountants, so I'll do tech companies.

    Marner = Uber

    Matthews = Tesla

    JT = Amazon

    Nylander = Instagram
