No KPMG Houston is weird. I have worked in many cities over my career and have never seen such a difference in culture at a big 4 than Houston KPMG. Realize I am PwC so may be discounted but it is a weird office here.

Can you elaborate a bit more? I keep seeing this sentiment that Houston is every Big 4’s “problem child” but I’m curious why. Is it the people?

OP, so you work remotely for another KPMG office but not for Houston? They’re not going to make you transfer to Houston? I think you should just show up for events that you’re invited to and start introducing yourself! I’m sure there will be some nice people.

Yeah but still. I can’t come to event and start talking to everyone each time. 😂. Just wonder if anyone want friends in kpmg Houston lol

I get it, it’s much easier to have people in your group that you know by default. But you might meet people if you show up.

I worked at KPMG Houston in SALT, and it’s really not terrible. (I’ve worked in other offices). Deep down they’re all the same. I’d recommend asking your PML (who likely has a lot of connections across the firm and in Houston) to connect you virtually with a few people in Houston that’s your level to help you integrate.

How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.

When do you think it’s the best time to ask my firm to be remote only/ work from a diff country? During my review? Right before I move? Moving isn’t an option and I have enough money saved up in case they fire me on the spot. Just thinking maybe there’s a time to ask where they won’t fire me right away and don’t know if I should take advantage of the market now or wait as long as possible. I’m a 2018 grad specialty corp.
