Hello! How does KPMG evaluate performance and deliver feedback on projects? Is this the main driving force behind promotions or is that based on utilization?

They use AERT to track project feedback. The secret to good reviews is a good PML and ass kissing up the chain or working on a partner's pet projects.

There are three driving forces behind promotion: 1. Can you be charged out for more money 2. Are you about to quit 3. How much do the decision makers know/like you This is true for any consulting company. The good ones are very structured around 1, the bad ones wait until 2, the god awful ones rely on 3.
