Not sure what the deal is with KPMG’s jackass attitude. DM me DPS- I’ll get you a referral if you have a job post you’ve identified. We’re not hiring a lot of externals right now but I know some practices are able to justify new hires if they can’t source the talent internally.

"To solve complex client problems" - yeah, that's what we do here in consulting all day! LMAO We don't get increase in our billable hours by "solving" problems.

You’re right, you don’t get more billable hours by not milking a client before “solving the problem” or closing a deal/engagement. Instead, you lose a client, lose your reputation and get fired.

You got laid off at J&J?

I’m so sorry to hear that, I didn’t know they were doing layoffs

I'm actually the client. Need to hire a consultancy for a project (5ppl). Proposals were horrible. KPMG didn't have the staffing.
