Consulting Exit Opportunities

Is lateraling over to KPMG a bad move? Sick of the PwC culture. Wondering if the grass is greener type of deal.

Not really. Big 4 is all the same, although the grass is never greener all these firms are the same with their own pros and cons. Exit opportunities may be better, but that’s subjective.

Grass is only greener if your willing to water it

Culture is better here. Couched by other folks who moved here from the other 3. Just look up the numerous threads on this

From what I’ve heard it’s more relaxed than the other 3 but again it’s really about who’s on your team

Seems relaxed with a heavy touch of passive aggressiveness. It all depends

Could be greener... all depends on the immediate individuals you will work with.

My experience has been that every partner in the big4 are like the franchisees of fast food chains. KPMG is like A&W. Every partner does things differently, it's a little island. Sometimes you (the client) get a great product, and sometimes it's a little burned. I'd like to think that some of the other companies are like McDonald's: consistent at every location. But the reality is that partners change firms all the time.

As a Han person from Xinjiang, it hurts to see how people always associate China with CCP and just negative things in general. Ugyhurs are not treated fairly but there is no genocide either. The one child policy was only applicable to Han, all other minority groups have always been able to have as many children as they want. How could you call that genocide? There’re so many factors that play into the problems at China and it’s just not black and white.

Fellow ladies- what do you typically dress in when going to work or travelling on work? I am seriously sick of in laws passing bad comnents regarding my "work culture" and dressing styles on a regular basis. For any guys reading this- learn to stand up for your wives even though it may be standing up to your parents.

Anyone else just sitting around waiting for the ax to drop? I'm a soon to be 2nd year corporate associate who has seen work completely dry up. My utilization held pretty steady around 50% immediately after shutdown, but August was below 15 billables with no appreciable work in the pipeline. Aside from letting people know I'm available and doing pro-bono/CLE, it's starting to feel like a serious "covidcation" leading to termination.
