Here’s Your Open Thread for KPMG Compensation Discussions (2016)

Now that it’s fall, many public accounting professionals have been rewarded for all the hard work they put in last year. Some people are happy, some people are sad and everyone is still thinking, “I don’t get paid enough for this shit.”

Now that it's fall, many public accounting professionals have been rewarded for all the hard work they put in last year. Some people are happy, some people are sad and everyone is still thinking, "I don't get paid enough for this shit." 

As always, we celebrate the end to compensation season with KPMG. Full disclosure: I used to work at KPMG and, to the best of my recollection, my discussions ranged from "fine" to "god-awful." 

And based on one tip we received, expectations are low:

KPMG comp talks have begun.  Get that thread posted brah. Can't wait to see how shafted everyone is.

This tipster is not the first, and certainly won't be the last, person to wish ill will on his fellow Klynveldians. Some people can't help themselves. They're certain to get a lackluster raise or bonus, so it's only fair if everyone else is getting lousy raises and bonuses too. I get! Not great for karma though.

Let's try to keep things civil and get right to the important stuff:

  • Position, promotion (if applicable)
  • City (region is not informative) & line of service
  • % raise 
  • % bonus (if any)
  • Old & new base

Only wishing you the best, Klynveldians. Give us a shout if you need a hug.
