What are the career levels at KPMG? What level aligns to 7 YOE in consulting (also have 3 YOE in industry)? And what do current salary ranges look like for someone in this YOE range? Made a recent switch but considering going back to another big 4. Also interested in understanding what the culture’s like in the OCM group? Work-life balance? Saw some recent-ish negative posts about the OCM culture so interested to hear more perspectives. Thanks all!

JP does it again. Would be interesting to see if big 4 would be making any adjustments to pay scale as well. Hint *EY* for mid year raise.

What are benefits packages like outside the Big 4, particularly at MANGA (I guess that’s the new acronym with Meta), Salesforce, etc?

I’m paying $3796/yr for a family HDHP where the total OOP max is $7600 ($3800 for individual). D throws in $1k to HSA if you max personal.

Curious to hear from people (or general thoughts) who have gone from FAANG to Big 4 or Accenture Consulting. I always hear about the opposite. What are the driving factors? Is it worth the potential short term pay decrease, and the decline in WLB (I was previously at a mid-market consulting firm, so I was used to the ups and downs of WLB). I currently find myself getting bored regularly, not to mention the lack of true career direction here.

So most people are WFH for the next few months probably.
