Here’s Your Open Thread for KPMG Compensation Discussions (2015)

Aka: KPMG Kompensation Konversations or KKK for short.

It's New Year's Eve in the KPMG universe today and we have a flood of tips telling us that the firm started compensation discussions in earnest on Monday.

Here's a sample:

KPMG compensation conversations (whew, that's a mouthful) started yesterday 9/28.

Another just wanted to send us an FYI:

KPMG comp thread should be started btw

Then there's the polite:

Please add a KPMG comp discussion page.

And the confused:

Am I just not looking in the right place? Numbers were initially released in tax yesterday and should be distributed by Wednesday.

No, you're definitely in the right place.

I always get a little nostalgic when the KPMG Komp thread goes up. Since I used to work at the venerable House of Klynveld, I know that the feeling of excitement and anticipation followed by crushing disappointment is a special kind of emotional roller coaster. I feel for you all. Especially after one tipster shared this:

[W]hat I'm hearing from others is that they are unsatisfied (as usual) but this year it was expected.

As reference, a M2 got promoted to SM this year (1 rated) and got a smaller % raise and bonus than last year as a M1 without promote. Not a good sign for the rest of us.

Eek. Anyway, some of you are anxious so let's get this party started. As always, we provide a guideline for participants to follow to keep everyone happy:

  • City (region is not informative) & Line of Service
  • Promotion (if applicable) & Rating
  • % Raise
  • % Bonus (if any)
  • Optional: Old & New Base

Keep kool, KPMG Kaptains of Kapital.
