Making Work More Human - A Q&A with ex-KPMG Partners 11/6

Appalling how disrespected "non consulting" folks are treated. Essential HR, Recruiting, IT are expected to perform like partners yet get paid like interns with no appreciation given. Please fix thx.

Surely they are not expected to perform like partners

True. Some folk work extended hours with endless deadlines and deal with multiple partner stakeholders and complex projects. Yet salary is along the lines of junior staff.

BCG 1 Nobody said you didn't. The point is that as you move up the chain you will be compensated for those hours and that work. You will get meaningful bonuses. Do you have any realization that internal staff annual bonuses are typically less than one consulting referral bonus? Let that sink in...

This is really interesting - I was speaking to someone last week that said he was changing their business model - and calling IT, HR, “support” ..... it doesn’t seem to have gone down well...

What do you miss about your job that can’t be done WFH? I miss 1) client and meetings with opposing counsel to discuss high-stakes transactions where everyone’s dressed to the nines and do “serious business”; 2) expensive lunches; 3) happy hours and 4) wearing my suits. None of that is coming back before 2021 (probably not only the meetings, but the transactions are going away too...) Glad I still have my job though.
