Methods group at KPMG is the same group as NFTS at Deloitte. Are you going to focus more on Methods or R&D (they’re under the same umbrella under both companies but KPMG employees typically do both while Deloitte employees focus on one or the other). The Methods group at Deloitte is awesome, but so are some KPMG teams. The R&D group at Deloitte is suffering a ton lately with turnover so it’s going to be a hard job to handle right now (not enough seniors to provide guidance). If you are going to be working with Methods in PA for KPMG that team is really strong and super friendly, can’t really speak about other regions though for them (they work more at state level where Deloitte is a national team).

That is super valuable insight actually. Thank you so much. So I will be focusing more on the methods side, but they told me that I will be able to help with the R&D side as well, which is very appealing to me. That’s good to know that Deloitte’s team is more separated in what they work on. I like the idea of working on a larger variety of projects.

I went through this process myself, and my only piece of advice is to go with your gut on this decision. One time I let upper management talk me out of an internal transfer and I ended up regretting listening to them. They didn’t give me the experience they promised in the end, which influenced my final decision to accept an external offer. Beware that both firms will do all they can to keep you. Maybe see if you can meet some people in another group within your firm and then judge if it’s a good fit for you. Then go with your gut on which path is best for you and your career.

How would you go about telling a company you don’t want to do anymore interviews? I was originally told probably two or three, then “one last one”, and now “potentially two more”.

Honestly the interviews seem more like meet and greets. Cont.
