Mark Weinberger Says Culture Defines EY, Fails to Define What Culture Actually Is

In the slow-as-molasses, reactive world of public accounting and behemoth professional services firms, there’s no such thing as “old news.” That’s why we’re pulling this three-year-old video out of the vault so we can all point and laugh at EY Chairman and CEO Mark Weinberger talking about culture. Or attempting to, anyway.

The LOLs start at 1:01 for those on a time crunch.

Quote Mark (transcribed by yours truly): “The big thing that EY is different is our culture and it sounds trite but it’s not. When people say, ‘OK, define your culture, tell me what it is about EY’s culture.’ And my honest response is, you can’t define culture; you can only feel it. So you have to be part of it to actually know what it is.”

But … you’re part of it and you don’t seem to know what it is? K, bro.

Don't get it gif
