What’s the take on KPMG’s cyber practice? Growing? Stagnant? Competitive? West coast vs east coast leadership good/bad?

Love it here! My leadership team is awesome. They recognize you for all the efforts, set boundaries so I'm not sending late night emails, works with you to provide opportunities that align with your goals. I've been actively recruiting my friends bc I genuinely enjoy being here. Quite a few colleagues have turned to friends. I know KPMG doesn't have the best reputation as a firm, but cyber practice is growing rapidly and my pay is competitive.

DM if you want to chat more.

I’m very happy in our Cyber practice. I appreciate the cultural shift over the last two years to support our people. I’m sure in some areas of the firm it’s a lot of talk, but from the teams I work with within Cyber it’s good to see it’s not just words. For any Women interested, we have a strong support network for women in Cyber that adds to my positive experience.

I have been in cyber for about 4 years. Manager now. I like it a lot. I’d say growing and has good brand but depends on team. So many different groups too: GRC, IAM, Assessments, cloud, etc

Good to know. Thanks

KPMG is a good firm, worked there years ago; however, the brand is not strong in cyber security and a lot of the work is or was risk and reg type of work. So it depends on what you are looking for. When I was there it was a great lifestyle. Great WLB.

Definitely was, the practice has evolved.

I really enjoy it here. The cyber practice is one of the fastest growing practices at KPMG. People from other cybersecurity firms are coming to join our team at quite a substantial rate, so the pay must be competitive for experienced hires. There’s lots of work as well but respect for work life balance when it’s needed. I have no major complaints
