    I have been working at KPMG US full-time (less than an year)

    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.

    Former Employee - Tax Intern in Dallas, TX
    Former Employee - Tax Intern in Dallas, TX

    I worked at KPMG US as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    KPMG had a great work environment and I really loved my coworkers. On Fridays during the summer, we were encouraged to leave at 3:00. As an intern, I found the training and mentorship programs to be helpful, useful, and overall made the transition easier.

    Cons

    It's a Big 4. The time you put in, especially during busy season, was just nuts. If it's important to you to succeed at a Big 4, then it's worth it, I'm sure.

    Solid company to start, but not rewarding high performers drains talent

    Pros

    Great for the resume, with a number of solid exit opportunities. The advisory group's culture is overall really good and tries to keep a well balanced work/life.

    Cons

    Advisory group doesn't have a strong stance in the world of consulting. Mostly tries to cling to technology implementation and PMO type work. The real, true consulting project are few and far between. Also, doesn't have a strong presence in the energy industry.

    Healthy work place but not great, relevant or exciting work.

    Current Employee - Manager in Dallas, TX
    Current Employee - Manager in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at KPMG US full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    New technology, real drive to grow and acquiring niche firms. Leadership is strong at national level.

    Cons

    Limited local vision and strategies. Hiring direct entry partners and higher level people who seem to be more interested in hiring more people from their previous firms. Most who are hired have limited success and leave within 12-18 mths. Career path for promotion is based on sales. Difficult to achieve because the company is seen as audit firm first which does not seem to take advisory services seriously in areas in big data, cloud.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on finding clients (smaller clients) with needs rather than a few mega clients with less intense competition.
