    Pros

    Compensation is good, time-off is generous, opportunity for advancement. KPMG offers a lot of perks to its employees which helps to make it a fun place to work.

    Cons

    It's an accounting firm so it's not the most creative place to be but there are opportunities to work with people who have amazing backgrounds and you can learn so much just by being around them. There is a culture of competitiveness between difference sections of the company - negativity, back-stabbing. If you're a positive person and don't engage with the negativity, you'll be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example.

    Pros

    Nothing really positive to say.

    Cons

    Horrendous leadership, highly political, outdated services and technology, bare essential benefit package. Work life balance is non-existent. 80 hour weeks are expected with little to no praise

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate 50% of mid-level to executive management in Montvale, NJ. Harry Moseley and John Veihmeyer are clueless inbeciles who are driving KPMG into oblivion.

    Pros

    Many interesting and genuine colleagues provide guidance and assistance.

    Cons

    Highly political and little job security. Often people are promoted on the strength of their ability to network with the right partner or higher echelon director and with little regard to their talent or credentials. If you do not have a partner protector you are in dangerous waters. I was part of a group that was let go because one notorious partner wanted to get rid of one employee so to cover his tracks he let go of the entire group of 20.

    Advice to Management

    Look carefully at what is really going on in the partnership, stop the outsourcing and hire American workers who need the work

    Pros

    Opportunity, benefits, flexibility, genuinely good people and a generally supportive work environment -- they are really trying to move ahead of the competition and doing a lot of around high performance, employer of choice, to get there -- it is a supportive culture

    Cons

    A great deal of shifting around in the international space, doesn't really affect the US firm but if you're working in any capacity that touches on global you will be driven crazy by changes in direction, constant addition of responsibility with no commensure increase in compensation, constant need for consensus in decision making slows us down and makes it very difficult to make progress -- worklife balance? what's that?

    Advice to Management

    Either decide to be a federation of independent member firms and forget trying to have a global organization OR create a real global organization with decisionmaking capabilities
