Fiscal year is 9/30, raises go into effect 10/1


Thank you!

I would say end of the month. And take a 3 month break before starting.


How can you not know that as an SM3?


Who cares. Doesnt answer the question.


Current year end is 9/30 but the firm is thinking to change it to 6/30 which may happen in FY 2021. If you thinking to come to KPMG, I would recommend coming over around July or August assuming your current employer year end is 6/30.

Thank you. That is helpful. Same here at EY. Any idea what the current salary range could potentially be for a director at kpmg in Risk Advisory practice? Just curious as that will be a key driver for my move. Appreciate the help.

Hi All, I have cleared all 3-4 round of interviews in Apisero by 26 Dec. HR also taken all the documents like salary slips etc. She said offer may take some time due to new year holidays.

So just wanted to know what is the point of all these rounds.

They are now 4 and 2.5… should they be able to go to sleep in the room together without him there? Are they old enough to understand and cooperate?
