    Pros

    I enjoy working with the people here. They are very helpful and easy to work with. If you are looking to get additional training there are plenty of opportunities and resources to fulfill that need. Perks are good, company values are great. The flexibility they allow for PTO and work-life balance is wonderful.

    Cons

    The compensation could be improved.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    First and foremost the people. I've been employed at companies where the work was less than ideal but the people I worked with were stellar, which made the day get on well. Fortunately, at KPMG you have the best of all worlds. Great people, great professionals, great professional, personal, and social development opportunities. Truly cannot say enough about it.

    Cons

    Every place of employment has "cons", however, so far I've not found any glaring issues. I was pleased with their benefits, my salary, and my leadership.
