    I have been working at KPMG US full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Organizational skills development
    Good training
    Flexible work schedule
    Great vacation benefits

    Cons

    Although flexible hours, work load is enormous. During busy season may work over 80 hrs per week.
    A lot of emphasis on time budgets, pressure to complete things fast and quality often suffers
    Work can get mindnumbingly boring

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set realistic expectations
    Inform staff of scheduling changes right away
    Be direct and honest

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
