Hi fishies! Need your thoughts on the following move. Have been offered to leave my lazy Roche consulting (regional role) to KPMG as a director in the healthcare sector. I tend see alot of horrible jokes about the latter… and somewhere that is preventing me from sizing out the opportunity. The money and exposure is better but I am skeptical.Roche KPMG

    Business Outlook


    An amazing employer overall everything from from compensation to the beautiful Mississauga office is designed with employees in mind. Lots of job opportunities and especially if you're willing to move internationally. I can see why some employees spend a majority of their careers with the organization.


    Long work hours, some employees are doing all the heavy lifting while others coast. Some senior management have so many direct reports they are unable to really have a grasp on what their employees do/don't do. Workloads are more often than not, uneven. More reorganizations than I have ever seen in any other organization, many times very senior or tenured employees let go.

      Easy Interview


      Was good, very friendly and forthcoming. Efficient, but straightforward. All in all was about an hour long and talked about my CV and further experiences that I have had. Also about how I fit in the role.
