    Current Employee - Senior Associate in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Great learning experience, you get a lot of exposure to many types of clients. Given a lot of responsibility early on in my career. Excellent training programs. Work with very smart people. Client interaction is frequent.

    Cons

    General lack of management at the firm. HR is responsible for scheduling and does not factor in your preferences. There is no room for advancement. Extremely high performers are not rewarded properly via promotion or extra pay. Managers and partners have large discrepancies in management techniques. Management does not care about providing quality work, all focus is on squeezing output and running at highest level of "efficiency" which does not allow improvement of work. Client service is dismal, seems that most clients just use KPMG because of it's name and reputation. Oh and the hours are terrible and you are not compensated for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your top performers, start caring about providing a quality product to clients.

    Current Employee - Senior Project Assistant in Charlotte, NC

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

    Pros

    Great benefits: 5 weeks of paid vacation plus additional holidays. Company tries to hold fun events. Each employee given a PML to help with transition, reviews, etc.

    Cons

    Little room for growth. Limited direction and very limited mentoring. Office is extremely quiet, very little interaction with coworkers which can make for a long, almost isolated day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better mentoring to new staff. Be more inclusive of staff, instead of merely focusing on managers/directors.
