KPMG always underwhelms. They’re in the last of the pack in terms of wanting to increase comp. But as others have noted, a ton of people including myself have left this year so will be interesting to see what plays out.

What are you doing at KKR? I’m curious.

When I was at KPMG and given my 3% interim raise, I asked about the fact KPMG was below market and their reply was we “researched this” that said, KPMG pay’s seniors in the mid 70s and PwC now the high 80s. There is almost a 20k market difference. Today they gave everyone a 20% raise in Assurance at PwC…Btw PwC is hiring and they doubled the referral bonus too, anyone need a referral lmfao…

Not having a payout hurt the people at top the most, but honestly I don’t feel that bad. At that salary you should more than enough saved up to live comfortably, and I see it as a bit of payback for those late night “pls fix” emails

15% in a non promo year is great what you mean! My first year I was a tier 1 and only got 8%

Same as EY2. Before SM years, not sure I had a raise less than 13% - 15% at EY.

Wait we’re allowed to get raises?

At what point does the value of a degree fall off? I'm in my early 30s, and have five years of experience, and work on a very theoretically interesting project. I believe I'm on track to promotion in the next year. So, I could put in a year of full time school to check the box off, but I'd be sacrificing hobbies and social life (not to mention cost). Is this FOMO or is there real opportunity here?

My firms bonus structure is based on “billed out” (what a partner actually bills to the client) dollars instead of actual hours billed. So you can work 2000 hours but the bonus is based on only 1850 hours, because 150 got cut over the year. Is this normal? It seems entirely unfair and makes it impossible to get a bonus.

Have the option to transfer to Canada (Vancouver/Toronto/Montreal) and keep my US salary or to London at a 10% paycut. My current salary is 100K USD which will be ~65K GBP if London and ~125K CAD if Canada. Obviously my salary will go further in Canada but London sounds too cool to pass on. So my main question is: will living on 65K in London be comfortable enough that I just do it for the experience? Currently in NYC at 3 yoe and will go back to the US after 1 year for MBA. Please advise!

I have 21 days to sign, so not sure what that means from a risk factor situation for them. I asked for additional comp and health insurance. They came back with slightly better package.

We are burnt out but when we raise our hand we just get yelled at and told everyone is dealing with this. How do we escape?

Damn. Was lucky enough to land an interview. The interview went numerous rounds, it was super positive, so then I decided I would be 100% honest about something I wasn’t good at, in hopes of being clear that I was ready to grow. Then I got ghosted, and I think it’s because of the said honesty. Feeling low and stupid for ever admitting a “fault” in an interview instead of just telling them that I’m perfect.
