Current Employee - Tax Associate in Lisle, IL
Current Employee - Tax Associate in Lisle, IL

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

Pros

I gained experience in sales and use tax compliance while working for a Big 4 firm.

Cons

LOTS of turnover since Feb. 2012. I know of interns at smaller firms that make more than our Senior Associates. The work is redundant. Doesn't "feel" like you work for a Big 4 firm (no interaction with partners within SALT or employees in other service lines. Not a diverse office by any means.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase compensation, become more involved in the career planning of Associates and Sr. Associates.

    I worked at KPMG US as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Terrific environment and good ERP infrastructure. Pays well for the consultants and Employees are highly empowered. Most of the work is done offshore and learning potential is good. As employee, I see the growth potential is huge. If you are contractor, you pay is appreciable.

    Cons

    Decentralization of controls and heavy politics. People seem to work together and like each other, but not so in reality. Several of KPMG Senior Management are looking at timelines than the bigger perspective and picture. Not the right right people in right place, I would say may be 2 to 3 out 10 are right skilled and doing their deliverables effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
