This sounds like sending tributes in The Hunger Games. I find it utterly offensive thst fellow EAs are having to sacrifice their jobs so others may hopefully keep theirs. For those doing so, you are awesome human beings and KPMG does not deserve to breathe the same air as you. How many executives would do the same? EXACTLY ZERO.

I was just thinking of applying for a job an entry level consult job at KPMG. Can someone explain what's going on with the EAs?

We just had lay offs. They are restructuring so most EAs are at call centers in specific cities and minimizing one on one support.

I'm a US citizen working at Accenture in Tokyo, wanting to move back to California. L11 now but should be L9 this year. Trying to plan my future move. Timing-wise, is it possible to transfer as L9 into an L7 position? If so I'd try transferring maybe 3 years into L9. If not I'd try transferring 1 year into L9. Do you think it's possible to transfer to San Francisco / San Jose Accenture from Tokyo? Is it just a simple transfer form or do I have to find a job over there and interview etc? Thanks!

He has given me nothing this year (always gives it mid december or before I go on break -which I am now) also always give an e-gift card so not like it got lost in the mail.

D said we will all move to Central Business Service (CBS)

We will no longer be under Executive Service Center (ESC)

Although management says it will have no impact on us, am suspecting that's not the case.

Does KPMG, EY and PWC have a central support system?

Please, share your thoughts as am thinking that moving to CBS we will lose some perks.
