Not sure what market you're in but it sounds like a pretty good opp and decent salary. I left after a year of senior and job offers i got were 80-90k

Similar to my hcol market. First year audit seniors made low 70s and the people that left were able to move into the 80s.

From my conversations with the Company there is a lot of opportunity for growth. Another one of my motives is going back to an office and I don’t see kpmg doing it in a full time perspective.

What are your career goals?

80k is kind of low, what do you think career progression will be like there?
