    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (San Francisco, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Fairly simple interview process that lead nowhere. After the interview with a hiring manager got a VERY POSITIVE feedback. However, after multiple follow ups - no response at all. Has been 8 weeks, and I hear that this is normal for how KPMG hires. Well, too bad - I am off the market now, with speed like this they will be missing on a lot of talent.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at KPMG (San Francisco, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    As an experienced hire, I was surprised by the difficulty Partners in a multi-disciplined firm had "connecting the operational dots" of life science and healthcare strategy. I interviewed directly with the senior or hiring Partner on the telephone. Having to meet multiple Partners throughout the process takes a lot of time to schedule and 50% are as they are driving or at the airport. It's critical to know the single value only you can bring to the organization.
