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

    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.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere of young professionals who work as a team toward common goals.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work is not very sexy, although important (i.e., audit). Hours can get quite long during busy season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All segments of the business should remember to create career paths for their talent. Young talent can get lost given the size of the firm,

    Pros

    KPMG has a great promotion program with clear goals that they will help you set. They also have family friendly policies such as extended maternity leave.

    Cons

    The office culture can be a bit male dominated but that may be the nature of consulting firms.
