    I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunities for career advancements. Large company which can allow you to move internationally or to different industries. Work with great colleagues who will become your close friends.

    Cons

    Longer than average hours. Work is demanding and the pressure is high at times. The pay is lower than what you would get if you leave the firm. On the other hand, you can use the firm as a platform and always be able to find a better paying 9-5 job if that's for you.

    Advice to Management

    The US firm should look to the European KPMG's operation and take some simple steps which would greatly improve the quality of work/life for employees (e.g. showers in the office, subsidized gym, free mobile phone for all employees, etc.)
