Consulting

Thinking of joining KPMG. I’m equivalent of a Director level there. What’s the firm culture like? Heard mixed things.

Been at K for 5 years. Came from a small boutique firm and initial years were rough. But like others said, very people focus. People are generally very helpful but there are a few bad apples regardless. The firm has been very supportive of my life events and personal life. The team was very supportive to me when I had my kids to keep me stay away from travel as much as possible, some of my mentors even willingly share their sales to help me avoid bad metrics when I was busy with kids, supportive during my relocation due to personal reason and generally very fair to me on performance review and such. Of course, I also work my ass off when needed so it’s pretty much reciprocal. Granted, I’ve not been to other b4 and can’t compare with others.

It’s been covered above but I’ve been impressed by the people and attitudes of most - including all of the leadership I’ve worked with. I’ve been here a couple of years and have turned down a number of offers to stay.

Started a job at a tech company. People, culture, hours, benefits/pay is great. However, the role is not what I was expecting. It’s junior & administrative/sales oriented. I thought it would be more analytics & strategy based. Just got another offer for a corporate strategy role. Culture isn’t great, pay/benefits aren’t as good but decent, but I’d learn so much more in the role & it’s a manager title . What do I do? I’m early in my career. I’m happy rn but the role isn’t good career wise

I’m feeling very sad. I just learned that the partner in my previous firm got fired. I considered him my mentor. He took me under his wing. He was my Don Draper and I was his Peggy Olson. I’m really bummed about this, heartbroken and worried. Nobody knows why. The ex-colleague said everything was normal, they sent him emails but bounced back. Nobody saw it coming. 😢

Hey all! Currently live in DC and thinking about moving to either: Los Angeles, Austin, Seattle, or stay in DC. Where would you move/live considering: cost of living, housing prices, and job market. I feel like LA has a rough job market in terms of competitiveness of applications compared to DC/Austin but benefits elsewhere. Feel free to share anything else I should know! Thanks!

PARTNERS: two questions —1. If you see an associate has really low hours for the month, do you imagine them chillen on a beach somewhere or do you consider they probably spent most of their days sitting in front of the computer being “available”? 2. If you send an associate a random e-mail on a weekend like “Can you pull X and send to Y”, would you get annoyed if they responded saying they weren’t by a comp or would you consider it reasonable that they wouldn’t be by a comp on a weekend?
