    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Career progression and brand name are the two reasons why I decided to join KPMG. They really know how to treat their employees well. The Houston office has bought Cirque du Soleil tickets for everyone in the office, and they have rented a yacht to have a party on. In the tax department during busy season, there is always free food, and they buy dinner for you ever night. The benefits are top notch as well. I think it is the only company that gives you five weeks vacation starting off.

    Cons

    It is very structured. Your career progression is not really based on performance.

    Advice to Management

    I would tell them that they are doing a great job.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The main reason to work for that company is enhancing your resume. it looks good to future employers and you can find a far better job after working there for 2 years and obtaining your credentials. One learns a lot, overtime is sometimes better paid compared to other big four.

    Cons

    This is the most back stabbing environment I ever experienced. When you start as a new associate, you are treated with zero respect, swamped with menial tasks. Working hours are very long, work at the weekend is expected during busy season, so one does not have any time for hobbies or recreational activities.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and reneging on promises.
