Pros

You do have a "better" schedule compared to most public accounting jobs. Although, being in the Federal government practice, you have a very tough busy season in October and November.

Cons

In the Washington D.C. Federal practice, if you work here, it benefits you only if you plan on going to work for the government in the future. If you want to work for a private company of any sort, working here will not benefit you at all. Most people enter public accounting to get a vast experience in different fields. However, if you're in this practice, you will not get those experiences.

    Pros

    Great co-workers at the non-managerial level and ability to work with some of the best clients.

    Cons

    Managers pad the budget and pass the blame down to the staff level. Partners are completely disconnected and abusive to staff. For example, Partner visited client A for the first time after having been on the engagement for 5 years. Same partner called staff and spent 15 minutes yelling at them while on vacation the day before the staff member's wedding. The rant was uncalled for and a result of errors made by the Partner. Nobody takes responsibility for errors in previous year audits. When you try to correct testing the following year, you are labeled as a trouble maker. No room for growth.

    I worked at KPMG US full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Big 4 company, heard very positive feedback on employment from colleagues working at other practices. Each office location and practice has their own culture and that should be taken into consideration. My negative experience was not reflective of what I heard from other offices during my time there.

    Cons

    Job description did not match actual job, still a lof of the old Anderson culture remaining, excessive hours and mandatory weekends (2-3/months) year round (~70-80/hrs), high manager pressure to avoid any time off, poor leadership skills from management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get more HR involved to monitor more of the management practices with Associates and Senior Associates
