Not surprised. I actually worked on a small cyber project this year and it was tiny in revenue.

Idk how your on boarding went, but it felt like I was being thrown into the wild when I joined PwC. No one cared, no one reached out. At KPMG, directors/mgrs/HR all sent welcome emails and gave me choices for my first project.

They hired a bunch of army vets. It seems to be growing, but I am not in cyber.

Layoffs at PwC cyber or KPMG?

P1 - layoffs at PwC. Some director/manager layoffs earlier this year

.

Many Cyber partners left past couple months - not a good sign

.

Partners left in Advisory or Assurance?

Advisory

Confession: former PwCer here

OP- are you at KPMG cyber now?

SA1 - Yes I am. Still trying to piece together a story of what's happening at PwC cyber though

Do you like it at KPMG more? If so, why?
