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

    Pros

    endless opportunities for learning, great down-to-earth manager and partners who will listen to your ideas and care about you no matter who you are. They really do care about your well being if you're a high performer. If you don't deliver and don't add value well don't expect any special treatment. that's fair.

    Cons

    depending on your client load, hours can be very very long and the associates you work wth more of a burden than help. Again totally depends on who you get as clients and associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify early on the high performers and invest especially in them.

    Former Employee - Graphic Designer in Montvale, NJ

    I worked at KPMG US full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example.

    Open culture, very diverse, lots of room for growth to a certain point. Firm provides plenty of personal time and drives for a strong work/life balance.

    Cons

    Although they push for a strong work/life balance it isn't always possible with shrinking budgets and growing work loads. Also, nepotism is alive and well and causes issues in many support areas.
