    Current Employee - Associate Director in Johannesburg (South Africa)

    I have been working at KPMG US full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Travel opportunities are available
    Strong work ethic (mostly)
    Goes out of the way to be an employer of choice
    Takes "soft skill" training very serious (perhaps at the cost of technical training)

    Cons

    Very dependent on which country you work in
    Leverage of global expertise very limited
    Long hours expected
    Staff aren't always knowledgeable of the basics (i.e. they rise to a manager level to quickly without having experienced a lot of the practical aspects of the areas they are consulting in or auditing)

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
