    I have been working at KPMG International as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work. People are friendly and knowledgeable. The benefits are decent and the pay is competitive. They allow you to work from home when the weather is bad if you work in IT. The work life balance is great, everyone expects you to do your work and they don't bother you. The management team doesn't hold employees back from pursuing other opportunties within the company, which is a breath of fresh air.

    Cons

    Could use more training for new hires. I wasn't really trained on my current role, I just asked a lot of questions and taught myself most of the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More organized training for New hires

    Interesting project on financial institution. I really love the people there and the manager is really approachable. Hands-on experience from the first day and even travelled with managers.

    Pros

    Solid business credentials and track record of delivery. Trusted business advisors to companies and individuals around the world. Intellectually stimulating place to work!
