They ended a defined benefit plan and replaced it with a cash balance plan. I’m vested in both.

Partners still have defined benefits don’t they?

Sort of, it’s self funded.

Does KPMG even have one anytime? I know Deloitte does.

What's a benefit?

Hi fishes, I received an offer from big 4 with 60% hike. My managers wants to retain and I asked them to match if you want me to be retained. Now I got a call from GPM yesterday. He used harsh words like "being greedy" "selfish" etc and offered me 30% in the end. I politely declined but he asked me to reconsider as he said "it would be unfair for the org for you to leave so soon." Let me know a proper response. Also what do you think of this behavior by GPM?

Hi folks, I am a java lead with 9 years of experience skilled in Spring boot, microservices along with cloud exposure. I am not certified in any cloud platform though. Currently my ctc is 18.70.

I got call from HR of one of Big 4 firm. She had such an irritating tone for a HR. When I told my expected CTC, she went on to persuade me to quote lower number since they don't have budget. I even came down to a point since I wanted to get Big 4 Opportunity. She kept on saying a number which was not even 15% of my current package. Finally, she said she's not going to process the profile with an almighty attitude. Such an arrogant tone from Big 4 HR. I wonder this MNCs have idiots as HRs
