KPMG’s Holiday Card is Like the Video Version of Wordy Wall Decals

Well, KPMG has officially thrown this year's holiday video card into the ring and our tipster calls it "somewhere between EY & Withum on the awful scale." As with a few other firms, it's not embeddable. I'd like to think this is some genius plan on the firms' part to keep themselves from appearing here […]

This WithumSmith+Brown Holiday Video Card Is Either the Greatest or Worst Holiday Video Card Ever

Unfounded Rumor of the Afternoon: PwC Making Mid-year Salary Adjustments?

From the mailbag:

There are rumors that pwc is planning on doing something similar [to Deloitte]. In one of the meetings with an audit team, Tim Ryan [one of your Thanksgiving Day hosts] mentioned that there would be bonuses and salary adjustments sometime in December.
