I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than a year)

Pros

More independence once you become a Senior. Flexibility.

Cons

Unpredictable hours during final audits. Work load can be based on how much the manager participates and takes on.

Advice to Management

Show all levels of staff respect, treat them with dignity, and don't push manager/partner tasks onto lower level employees. This creates an enjoyable environment where the team feels valued and respected and therefore will work harder and more efficiently.

    Pros

    KPMG gives you the opportunity to get great exposure to a variety of industries and a good variety of assignments (on the advisory side).

    Cons

    - Work/life balance is a farce unless your family places professional success ahead of quality time. - No diversity within managers and partners, which discourages minorities from staying with the firm long term. - Not enough green initiatives to reduce administrative time of staff and managers. - Performance ratings and promotions are more based on which managers/partners champion you versus your actual merit.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of good talent is leaving the company based on the aforementioned cons, especially minorities who don't feel they have a true place in the firm.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a place to begin your career: training, prestige, and experience

    Cons

    Unqualified management, repetitive work, petty and dishonest behavior. You must conform to their way of thinking or are considered a threat. Racist and sexist.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what your doing. Develop a plan and stop playing reactionary catch-up with competitors. Question: How do you feel about being considered (by some) #5 out of the Big Four (note - some publications rated Grant Thorton higher) in the US.
