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

Pros

Awesome training, great people and family like atmosphere. They also have a great list of clients and if you speak up you will get a chance to work on your desired clients. The pay is not bad for an entry level job and the brand speaks for itself in the accounting world. 5 Weeks PTO!

Cons

Hours are pretty bad for 7-9 months out of the year but that depends on your schedule. Work gets pretty redundant and dry after a while. No opportunity for creativity. You are like a robot copying prior year workpapers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to work life balance. If you continue to get new clients, you should hire more people accordingly so that people aren't constantly overworked.

    Pros

    Advisory practice is filled with talented folks. Reputation allows for trusted advisory relationship with key clients and often on the short list for calls when opportunities present themselves.

    Cons

    The travel aspect is less than optimal...utilization often trumps efforts to staff locally

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistency in applying criteria for promotion across functions / practices would result in less turnover
