I worked at KPMG US full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good clients, fast paced, good reputation in general.

Cons

Like many companies, it isn't what you know but who you know. Company is too big for its own good just like other companies of its ilk. Why anyone would really want to work for these types of companies is beyond me now. They are all like MLM companies but on a bigger scale. Start as a little minion and try and work your way up. You better be drinking the kool-aid and start in these companies early if you want any chance of success to make the big money at the partner level. Better find someone to be your guardian angel along the way as well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look beyond the reviews of people as they are often just about the personal relationships people have rather than their professional ones.
