    KPMG is an excellent professional services firm with many opportunities available. They hire top-notch talent!

    Former Employee - Partner in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Partner in Chicago, IL

    I worked at KPMG US full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    More relaxed, collegial culture established by career KPMG leadership, flexibility to move into other roles within the Firm, a "band of brothers" set of relationships that are developed.

    Cons

    The former Andersen Partners diluted/changed the culture in Advisory to more dog-eat-dog set of values, too much focus on short-term results, Former Andersen partners brought bad habits of saying one thing and doing the opposite that tarnished the integrity of the leadership team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Believe in your partners. Senior partner leaders must do what they say and learn to "walk the talk."

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Chicago, IL

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

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive with other consultant companies

    Cons

    They don't care about their employees, only the money they make. Everyone is dispensable I know, but at this company it's blatant obvious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When employees leave after a year, and you have such high turnover, think about why? And think those people who leave will be at other companies you are trying to create business with.

    Pros

    Great people to work with and a very open environment. Everyone is very helpful if you are ever struggling with anything.

    Cons

    Local clients can sometimes be a challenge to get to if you are new to the city. However, the local transportation is easy to navigate once you get the hang of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping investing in young talent, especially in the advisory practice.
