I worked at KPMG US full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Pay was good. It looks great on your resume. The name recognition carries a lot of clout when you decide to leave.

Cons

Always understaffed, trying to get by with their employees by working you into the ground. The culture is harsh and includes yelling and fair doses of backstabbing, gossip and anger.

    Pros

    Global firm and clients; fast-paced working environment; diverse service lines; aggressive annual compensation increases; opportunities increase with tenure/experience; global mobility/transfer options available.

    Cons

    Political working environment; many subjective performance metrics; opportunities vary depending on your manager/director/partner support; compensation model creates incentives not aligned to business strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider shifts in compensation model to create more objective performance metrics and compensation aligned to these targets. Also, consider a better incentives to encourage members of the management group to invest time in new business opportunities, not just managing existing work.
