    Pros

    Everyone has my best interest at heart.

    Cons

    It can be a lot of hours one minute or very slow the next. It's hard to have any consistency in Advisory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to utilize more potential in your employees.

    Opportunity to work with other bright, talented consultants

    Current Employee - Senior Administrative Assistant in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at KPMG US full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Awesome people, great benefits, great administrative support network. The people are great to work with. Definitely a great place for an accountant to grow their career. a place where people care about their work and doing a good job.

    Cons

    As an accounting firm, the administrative team needs more support. There are many layers to get change done within the firm, it would be more effective if improvements took less time to happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    create an open channel to all levels and provide quicker action on ideas. if people think their ideas matter and can make changes, they will provide them. if they think their ideas go into a 'black hole' they won't say anything, because they think to themselves 'why bother' if nothing changes?

    Management clueless and seemingly indifferent to needs of employees when it comes to use of office space. Technology is behind other firms.
