The culture is shifting at KPMG. We are moving more away from transactional work into more project oriented items. Long term I think everything will be handled by their remote transactional group called Administrative Assistants at KPMG (ASK).

Hiring in my area and wondering if it is a wise move. May look to stay away from the big 4 all together, just undecided.

I have undiagnosed PTSD from this industry. Layoffs, toxic culture, office politics, double standards, a healthy dose of #metoo scenarios. Thought I was on top of/over it but it gets triggered every now and then by circumstances that I can’t control. I live in fear of being “let go” every second of every day and it has and will continue to sabotage my career. Please help me. Desperately need support, advice and shoulders to lean on

For those in Big 4, is there any way they can find out about a brokerage account if you don’t report it? If so, how? I find the concept of having to report/import all your investments to be intrusive and restriction from investing in any Audit clients (especially when I’m not in Audit or doing any work for those clients) to be ridiculous but I comply anyway. This isn’t a policy debate though, I’m simply curious about a Firm’s ability to find out about unreported brokerage accounts...
