Great place to jumpstart your career. Not too sure about the long run.

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

Pros

Solid promotional path (Hierarchy: Junior Associate - Associate - Senior Associate - Manager- Managing Director - Partner). Good entry level compensation.

Cons

Rarely see managers, not much opportunity for mentorship. Little training... you learn as you go. Steep learning curve.

    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.


  2. Helpful (3)

    Poor Management and lack of leadership.

    Negative Outlook
    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.
