Hi guys! I just started with KPMG as an S1 in business tax (about 2 months ago) There seems to be more and more push into going back to the office. I have a disabled sibling and an aging mother, which is why I prefer to WFH. Is there any way to apply to be fully remote and any tips on making that ask or who to talk to? I’d really appreciate any advice!KPMG

Don’t work for KPMG but I’d imagine they will be flexible- talk to HR/ relationship leader (or similar position). If they aren’t willing to bend- come to PwC. We allow people to opt to be fully remote

Seems like you have a genuine good reason to WFH. Discuss this with your PML and that's it. If they don't bulge then they don't value you as an employee and don't care for you as a person. Start looking for another job if you can't come to an agreement.

Thats’s a stretch to say that they don’t care for you as a person. There was nothing that indicated that OP had a fully remote position. If they decline their request it just means they prefer their work to be done in office. Its a business decision.

Remote vs in person for software developers in their early career. I started my career in 2021 fully remote. After the office opened again in 2022, I was able to learn a lot about the system from other people in the office and solve bugs faster. Without a doubt made my job easier. Lots of my colleagues still work from home in 2022. I can’t see why they are making it harder for themselves on purpose. I’m fairly confident they can afford to get to the office because they have teslas and shit.

I think client code is far more complex and the learning there cannot be matched by self study. Am i right about this?
