    I worked at KPMG as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They set you up with a performance manager and performance partner who really seem to care that you are enjoying the whole process National Training is fun because you get to meet people from all over the US and learn the software before you start Interns get overtime so you make alot of money

    Cons

    The hours, I worked 108 hours in a week and they treated me like a slave. My team was very unorganized and when we ended up having problems with the 10k there was alot of hostility. Not a very good work environment at all. I cried everything If you sign full time overtime isnt a thing so youll be making about 10 dollars an hour based on how much you are working and how much you are taking home

    I have been working at KPMG (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great PTO 25 days, over-time meal reimbursement, exposure to many industries

    Cons

    Work-life balance, what's that? Your work consumes you. You must move quick during busy season, no time to do things in your personal life. Competitive culture, people get sour when they see you leaving work before them. Busy season starts earlier every year.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put a minimum hour requirement on your staff. They get burnt out.
