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

Pros

- Fabulous opportunity to gain experience
- Translatable skills to many other careers
- Highly respected on your resume

Cons

- Bad work/life balance
- Really depends on who is on your team and what clients you are working for
- Doesn't pay nearly as well as comparable positions outside Big 4
- Time tracking and billable hours is SOOOO stressful

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more staff, scope projects more realistically, reward performance with higher bonuses, make more of an effort to hold on to your best employees
