EY hands down. The only real upside to KPMG is a slightly faster promo path due to turnover.

Sure thing. Are you looking at specific groups / industries? It really depends also on what practice / industry you're looking at when comparing B4 firms.

Although I’m a KPMG partner and have bias, Advisory staff 1 is spot on. This truly depends on service line and geographic location. Globally though EYs revenues for FY19 was $36.4 billion, and while ours haven’t been released yet (we’re a 9/30 year end, while EY is 6/30), I’m sure we will be north of $30B. In other words, PWC1 is being a little too dramatic.

Depends on service line, market, client portfolio, dynamic of your specific team etc etc and anyone claiming they can answer with a blanket statement is only kidding themselves.

I have worked at both. IMO, it comes down to culture. Two different cultures. EY was way less people oriented for me. Did not show me support when it was an emergency situation and death I had to deal with. KPMG has them beat hands down in that area. Other areas I think EY is better.

I have a friend what worked at both and said that people at EY were very up tight and it was like a high school clique and they love it at KPMG. But I’m sure it all depends on who you work with

I have worked at both. I would say lots of factors to consider. Depends on what service line. I know people that left KPMG for EY with the lure of a promotion (Sr Assoc to Mgr) and were back at KPMG in less than a year. Both have good and not so good.
