    Pros

    Working at KPMG was one of the best career moves I ever made. I was given lots of responsibility on projects, I worked with ambitious and educated co-workers, and I was rewarded financially at year-end for all the extra hours I worked late night and on weekends.

    I would highly recommend a position at this firm for those just entering the workforce upon graduating college.

    Cons

    While my efforts were recognized and rewarded, if you want to work with another manager or partner, you need to speak up, politely.

    Pros

    Personal and professional growth, work with very bright people

    Cons

    no work life balance, over worked and under paid

    Advice to Management

    Need to make sure your people are better leveraged.


  3. Helpful (2)

    Great place to build a career in Audit or Tax, Advisory is a slippery slope with little to no real strategic direction

    Pros

    In Audit or tax, opportunities for learning and development are seemingly endless and performance management is good

    Cons

    The advisory practice is struggling to find its footing in the market - management consulting in particular. There are too few partners to grow the business and the practice does not have a good track record of tactical execution of strategy. Partner/Principal behavior is at times unethical. Timely feedback on performance is practically nonexistent. Be prepared for surprises at year end.

    Advice to Management

    Examine a person's holistic contributions to the firm before terminating them because they had one difficult year.

    Pros

    Excellent support for advisory. Associates and Senior Associates are very bright and eager to learn. High potential to become future powerhouse in industries like Pharma, Energy, and Power/Utilities if they learn to better use their new hires.

    Cons

    Upper management should better learn to use their team to focus on the core industry in advisory and not focus too much on billable hours

    Advice to Management

    Better allocate resources. New hires want to work in the industry they are hired for, not in a different department

    Pros

    The benefits and perks are amazing. The environment is very comfortable. Everyone I work with are very well educated and smart! Pay is great

    Cons

    Pay is great however, you will never have time to spend money or make time for yourself. Even during the off season I my whole department is still at work till midnight..

    Advice to Management

    The partner is great! he is smart and helpful in so many ways. However, the managers below him have poor leadership.


  9. Great opportunities and great people, poor compensation and work life balance.

    Pros

    The people really are great within the advisory practice. Very smart people who also enjoy having fun. Good benefits including small pension and 401k matching.

    Cons

    Below market compensation including little variable compensation. Lack of space in New York Office means that you must reserve a cube every day if below manager. Work life balance is a definite con as work can be unpredictable.

    Advice to Management

    Must pay people better and more equitably. When transferring between various functions market compensation bumps should be given.

    Pros

    Great place for growth; you will get recognized for the name and allow you to move into a big company if/when you choose to move on.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic and politics; you will need to play the game to be able to move up at the rate you like. Otherwise you are just another number and will move up with everyone else, whether you/they deserve it or not.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better merit-based system
