I interviewed at KPMG on 11/14 and got a verbal offer the next day but since then waiting to hear from them. Been following up continuously but the partners are not replying it seems. In the meanwhile i have an offer from BT offering 90k for 4 yrs of experience which seems to be fair. I am just unsure whether to accept the offer as I was waiting for kpmg reply as I want B4 on my resume which apparently is a big deal. Is BT also good on resume for future employers ??

Does BT stand for Baker Tilly? B4 definitely helps when jumping ship and commanding top salaries. However, if you’re needing to start take your offer in hand.

If you have more time and patience wait for KPMG to officially draft it. They are probably behind and catching up on admin, training, vacations, etc. recruiters also can take a while. Not a good sign they didn’t follow back up or reply. I wouldn’t over message them. Do you have an HR contact to directly call and send a nice note to?

One more scenario Recruiters ( especially contract recruiters ) are facing layoffs across the board Are you sure your recruiter is still there ?

Did the kpmg recruiter at least give you a timeline ? Bc sounds like you did get the offer/more waiting on final message/communication from the partner ? I would clarify with the recruiter to see if hes waiting for the partner on the final decision or more just the partner to give you the formal communication (but the offer is official already). Bc yes big 4 does make a diff/ a lot of big/public or prestigious companies require big 4 experience.
Also how long can you sit on this BT offer ? Just tell them you need more time to think through and see if they could give you additional time.

Yes, like SM1, as someone who started at BT then Big4, fortune 100 and back to BT, you can make moves later if it isn’t the right fit, but as someone who left and came back I might have a different POV than most.

I started at BT and now I’m at KPMG. For some context, partners were in training sometimes after 11/15 and a lot of people took the week off for thanksgiving. Maybe give it another week if you can wait

I agree. That was lame but recruiters are so detached from each team. BT can certainly set you up for success. Make the best out of your experience!!

Partners may take vacations right now. You can contact the recruiter and tell them that you have other offer and would like to speed up the hiring process.

If he said so, I think you are just on waitlist. They’re probably waiting on other candidates to see if they accept it or not. If BT gives you deadline to respond, then just accept their offer by deadline.

What practice-audit, advisory etc?

Tax is hiring anybody with a pulse. Not sure why the partner is dragging their feet. Definitely take BT and move on. You’ll be better served at the other B4 down the road and will see more variety at a mid size firm to decide where to specialize later (Ie partnership vs s corp, AWM, REITs, etc.)

Hi all,

Do firms match offers from other Big 4s for campus hires? I’ve received a campus offer from both
KPMG and EY. I’m more interested in the EY offer, but they are paying 3k less than KPMG.

Would it be a bad move to let them know about the other offer and try negotiating? I feel it wont make a difference in the long run, but at the same time I don’t want to leave any money on the table if possible.

Thanks!

Anyone hiring those who have been out of work for a year? I took time off to tend to personal matters, but I am now looking to get back into the workforce again. My previous experience includes time at B4 audit up to senior level and then transitioned to manager in industry. Senior/manager roles are preferred.

I don’t mind audit. However, I’d prefer it not to be at a B4, as I am looking for some semblance of a work life balance.

DM me if you have something above, thanks.
