One promotion a year within KPMG tax as well.

PwC promotes twice a year

EY only moved to twice a year in the last 12 months. I am sure the other big 4 will follow the trend.

That’s pretty nice for sure! It sucks for those who are left behind due to things like delayed CPA testing and have to wait so long.

EY's mid year promotions are only for exceptional circumstances like a lateral hire at the wrong level or someone who needed a certification to get promoted who didn't have it at 9/30. They're definitely not for normal promos.

KPMG is once a year

Not B4, but at RSM for what its worth I've only ever seen one mid cycle promotion in my office, but it was also someone who was ready to walk out the door to another firm if they didn't get it.

Kpmg has a mid-year promotion in audit. Usually special circumstances ie lack of a CPA but could also be borderline people who got passed up and then recovered, or if resource needs increase.

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
