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

Pros

The learning experience, education and training is great and will help you tremendously for your future work life.

Cons

I is very difficult to maintain your work life balance, long working hours and overtime is not rare, open workspace culture is something you need to get use to but a lot of companies go towards this. Management is not ver open for change and sometimes lack of communication about business decisions etc.

    Former Employee - Associate
    Former Employee - Associate

    I worked at KPMG US full-time for 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.
