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

Pros

Nice company party, working from home is generally allowed

Cons

60 hour work weeks, management over-promising to clients, slave like work environment, low pay, culture of "whoops"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your people better, pay them at least what the standard is at other Big Fours, enforce restrictions on constantly working excessive hours,,,, (or pay them overtime), HR - get your act together

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

    Pros

    The com pay is very diverse they hire people from all backgrounds, they are very family oriented, they provide exceptional training and they pair you with a career mentor within the firm. They have an amazing volunteering program and the PTO is 5 weeks if you are not stuck in multiple busy seasons.

    Cons

    Average work day is about 12 hours, clients are not efficient and effective, whatever practice you end up in you are stuck there for a couple of years. Salary could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers and Partners that actually contribute to the engagement.

    I have been working at KPMG US full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Opportunity, benefits, flexibility, genuinely good people and a generally supportive work environment -- they are really trying to move ahead of the competition and doing a lot of around high performance, employer of choice, to get there -- it is a supportive culture

    Cons

    A great deal of shifting around in the international space, doesn't really affect the US firm but if you're working in any capacity that touches on global you will be driven crazy by changes in direction, constant addition of responsibility with no commensure increase in compensation, constant need for consensus in decision making slows us down and makes it very difficult to make progress -- worklife balance? what's that?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either decide to be a federation of independent member firms and forget trying to have a global organization OR create a real global organization with decisionmaking capabilities
