    I worked at KPMG US full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really smart and driven people, collaborative atmosphere, plenty of chances to develop multiple skill sets, plenty of travel, direct access to senior management (and they tend to take your inquiries seriously)

    Cons

    plenty of travel can get old, not many chances for advancement, in some groups the managers play favorites, there can be long periods of no work in your own field and you need to be willing to do something completely different for a while, pay is less than what you might get if you leave the firm

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to keep key talent from slipping away by possibly being more transparent about the advancement process.

    Pros

    KPMG is the best of the big 4 by far. Great people and fantastic experience overall. Plus they are building a new office.

    Cons

    The turnover is the worst part but that goes with any public accounting firm. Busy season helps put things in perspective but overall it is not that bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay to help stop turnover and increase team efficiency.

    Pros

    This is a good place to start your career. You can work hard and move up to Sr. Associate, after that it is all politics and how well the business is doing.

    Cons

    Company has a very short term planning cycle. Responsibilities can be very ambiguous. They do a poor job of identifying high performers.

    Great company to kick-off a career or a great way to get diversity.

    Nobody looks out for you and you have to take 100 percent ownership of your career progression

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a leader.

    Pros

    I work for and with highly intelligent teammates. I feel valued and respected. I always have high quality resources in which to be successful. Company invests well in training. A lot of learning is through experience in public accounting so I am happy that I am learning from some of the smartest people I have had the opportunity to work for. Professional environment without being stuffy. Inclusive environment.

    Cons

    As with any public accounting...busy season hours are awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to value all levels of your staff. The little rewards of movie tickets, gift cards, sporting events, etc do make a difference. Please keep that up.
