I worked at KPMG US full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Brand name employer, can learn a lot quickly (due to the long hours), people are generally hard workers, large company with experts in many disciplines, ability to change practices (although this could take several years).

Cons

No work/life balance, culture of staying until 10pm is pushed down by the Sr. Managers even when completely unnecessary, most of the talent leaves before making Manager leading to incompetence, extensive travel (even in audit). Salary + bonus is not on par with private industry (about 40% less in fact, until you make partner, then it evens up).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop pushing 'face-time' and instead focus on results (particularly for fixed fee engagements), and people might stick around longer. Pay real bonuses to junior staff.
