Project is asking me to travel the week my wife is due to have a baby or else get an exemption from HR. Is this normal or is my firm just not supportive? KPMG if anyone is looking to join.

A family friend just asked what is it that I do. I told him management Consulting at BCG expecting I’m gonna impress him. He was like oh you should try KPMG.

Just checked in to my flight. Thank you KPMG for putting the onus on the project teams to decide on travel. There will always be a partner who believes everything is an opportunity to sell more biz.

Person next to me in the plane apparently also works for KPMG based on the client work she is doing on her laptop without a privacy screen. I can’t decide if I should say something or just not care.

KPMG just rolled out their Lakehouse training center. Does PwC or EY have something like that ?

I feel like Bain is moving futher away from MBB. I find BCG very similar to the Firm but Bain feels like a different animal now. Time for KPMG to step up? I love to be proven wrong because I like MBB

How is the Workday practice at KPMG these days? I heard it is a bit of a sweat shop in Payroll, Financials and Supply Chain but the HCM side is okay. Healthcare practice is strong. Any details?

Which companies have the coolest principals/ partners? I’d say Deloitte. KPMG has the weirdest partners.

Just wanted to expose KPMG leadership and tell everyone that they reduced our PTO by 5 days without warning and with shady communication in the middle of the fiscal year ☺️

So does Deloitte, EY and PWC all get next week off? Cause KPMG hates their people so much they won’t even give us Friday off.
