I see a lot, I mean A LOT, of bashing on KPMG in this app in this bowl, the m&a bowl, compensation etc. Now, in all honesty, im coming from a firm that’s not Tier 2 or boutique, so I am looking forward the opportunity. Why is KPMG hated on as the comic sans of the Big 4? FYI I’ll be going into strategy as post-MBA.

Interviewed for an industry position last week and asked my interviewers what my hours would look like. They answered "uhh 40?" with a confused look. I explained to them my crazy hours in PA and why I wanted to ask, and they just laughed and said that no overtime is expected. Either public accounting really screwed up my view on work hours, or this is just an abnormally relaxed company.
