I have been working at KPMG US full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Diverse cultural background, thorough foundation to start a career

Cons

It gets really hard to aspire to be a partner. It's the business model, I was told. You rise fast, but get slowed down at the top.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None.

    Pros

    can hardly think of any other than it shares the KPMG brand

    Cons

    Extremely detached senior leadership especially the business unit heads
    Business unit heads generally have low level of understanding of the type of work done by various teams.
    Denial by the leadership that KGS is a BPO/KPO, when in reality work done by large number of people is backend in nature. Even in teams like due diligence, forensics, accounting advisory often quality of work is fairly basic
    high levels of favoritism
    excessive dependence on expats to drive business which has resulted in lack of stable leadership. key people seem to change every 2-3 years.

    The work environment is not at all good, no work ethic amongst senior professionals and no accountability

    Pros

    Good brand name on CV, though over the years the brand name is getting diluted. Tasks are not challenging and do not reflect what is needed for CV

    Cons

    The Senior Management lie to people and the most unprofessional set of people in any organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your partners to be more accountable.
