Very conservative, risk-adverse, "button-up" organization

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

Pros

KPMG is one of the "big four" so there are natural advantages of being part of this large matrixed organization with cross-functional, cross-geography and in-depth focus across industries. The leadership generally truly seems to care about the employees and the commitment to diversity and the community are there (at least on paper).

Cons

KPMG is a good place for Tax and Audit professionals. While Advisory is the largest source of growth, it's lagging in terms of the organizational commitment - this might be a good place for Advisory in 3-5 years as the practices mature.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less hierarchy would help retention and engagement

    Pros

    Professional work environment. Can work independently. Can take on as much responsibility as you can handle.

    Cons

    Used to be a little of a sink or swin environment for new staff......

    Pros

    Get condescending looks. They are NON-inclusive.
    Managers and co-workers are sarcastic, oh...boy even sadistic and they supposedly know-all. They are GODS you see [they stayed in the city they grew up in] and assumption is second nature to them.

    Cons

    No work-life, its a hoax. Not at all supportive to working mothers [its a shame], your 20s something staff makes mothers at work feel like they dont belong there every second [what a shame again], they gossip to no end, even your tween management who is typically single with an attitude problem with no signs of maturity and this is a NON-flexible work arrangement throughout.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Getting promoted is not an indicator of maturity and good judgement skills. Some of your managers are incompetent and your established seniors play politics and make new seniors from outside the organization look stupid. They are highly insecured and have narrow hippocampuses and hipothalmuses. Refer them to a good neurologist.
