I worked for KPMG for many years before moving into the HRSC. The executive leadership is in New Jersey and is narcissistic and has personally destroyed the careers of several leaders within the HRSC organization and they were forced out of the firm. The entire organization is run based on the personal whims of executive leadership and has had an overall negative impact.
Leadership in the Dallas office has become fearful and neurotic because of the executive leadership. Local leaders have sabotaged those who work for them, for personal advancement, to appease upper leaders, or to redirect attention away from their lack of leadership.
Many productive workers have found themselves out of a job due to leadership, working in conjunction with HR, to eliminate those who they see as competition to their personal advancement. Leadership is not above shifting blame from themselves to another while seeking to appear blameless.
The HRSC has a lot of leadership changes and personnel conflicts that negatively impact overall productivity and the work environment.
The culture of the Firm seeks to grow individuals and has excellent benefits. It is a shame that the HRSC and HR organization doesn't adhere to the rest of the firm's philosophy.
