I’m seeing the same post about joining KPMG in “sunny Bermuda” on LinkedIn. I love how this is being advertised as a vacation when we all know you’ll never see the light of day.

Lol, it’s not that bad. I worked in a big 4 in Bermuda before. My busy season hours are usually 55 hours a week at most. The working style/vibe on the island is chill.

US salaries or localized?

Isn’t Bermuda due East of Virginia? I always figured it was a 4 seasons type of place.

Yeah but it’s way far out into the Atlantic. It’s a tropical climate, so winters are like 60F.
