I cant speak to KPMG but many companies give in the range of 1 week for every year of service with a minimum or 4 weeks. If KPMG truly gave 4 weeks for every year of service service that would be unprecedented. You would have senior managers getting 1 year of severance....wow!

Dixon Hughes gave Aug - Dec severance for everyone laid off. That’s 5 months for people they wanted to cut from their payroll.

High-5 and a sweet amazon gift card for then effort

Speaking for Canada here but its varied widely. Generally about 4 weeks for every year of service and another lumpsum of 4 weeks on top of that. Not performance related if that helps at all.

That sounds amazing

I honestly didn’t know people got severances... what level do you have to be at to get this? Any staff I know that have tried to leave within my old group got walked off their client as soon as they put in their notice and forced to use PTO or have their last day be right then and there. Most of the management and above got threats about taking proprietary info and blah blah... Are severances common outside of the US maybe?

How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.
