Sorry to repeat this: have reposted as a new thread to get maximum exposure...
Appreciated the link Tony (see KPMG thread created 18.10.06)... cheers! It does appear that KPMG are pushing back towards conventional conultancy, which is good news.
I attended an 'invite only' meal with KPMG last week. Unfortunately, the employee contingent were mainly Audit, and therefore had little idea about the Advisory side. Although the company is one of the best to work for, I was slightly put off by the type of work... looked very much like applied audit. However, as I mentioned, most of the empolyees were audit/tax so will take thier views on advisory with a pinch of salt. For learning about the specifics of advisory, the videolink was more useful than the meal.
I have to voice my concerns over the salary. Although the official line is 'salaries in audit/tax/advisory are all competitive', I have a feeling that they are also equivalent. If I'm correct, and assuming that Advisory is moving back towards traditional MC (if there is such a thing), then the money is not competitive! does anyone have anonomous info they would like to share on this subject? Further to this, does anyone have any idea as to when the money is likely to become competitive (assuming KPMG DO want to attract the cream) ?
