I have been working at KPMG US

Pros

name recognition, ability to work directly with partners, room for growth, chance to get hands on experience working with major organizations

Cons

beauracracy that comes with large companies, can get lost in the shuffle. also have to worry about company history of getting caught up in scandal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

be more communicative on how to progress career-wise. try to let top performers be more autonomous and loosen the strings on micromanagement.

    Pros

    They have a lot of good leaders who will give you the tools needed to succeed. I never felt like I did not know what to do and I was always given the support I was needed. It was a great place and experience and I learned a lot about myself as well. I also very much enjoyed the out of office programs they supported which gave me a chance to meet everyone I worked with. Pay was very well too.

    Cons

    Hours can be very long, especially during busy season. Also, sometimes it was difficult to seperate work and life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for people on staff to give their ideas.

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Overall from a management consulting perspective, the work environment is a lot better than those of publicly listed consulting firms (Accenture, Capgemini, etc). Management is focused on the long term growth, and is willing to invest in growing practices.

    Overall the culture is very collegiate, unlike other firms. The firm provides plenty of training for employees.

    Cons

    Coming from a management consulting firm, I found the culture to revolves around risk. It is understandable for Audit, Tax and Internal audit engagments, but complicates regular management consulting engagements (BPS) with unnecessary work being perfomed to comply with the firm's "work paper" policy.

    Overall I find the firm to be fairly bureaucratic with significant layers of management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the work papers policy for management consulting engagements. A lot of time is spent doing paperwork after engagements are done, this time could be spent on business development. Also the firm needs to do a better job of sharing knowledge, some employees treat is treat it as "their" IP, while in fact it is the "firms", our competitors are way ahead in knowledge management and their efforts should be replicated at KPMG.
