    I worked at KPMG US full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rewarding experience. In my experience my hardwork was recognized and rewarded.

    Cons

    Bad behaviors are tolerated and not addressed appropriately by management. I strongly recommend soft-skills training is a necessity for many.

    Cliques are very common and egos get a better part of people. Treatment of client relationships are a priority but staff comes a distant second.

    You will work hard and long hours but if you have the right manager or partner supporting you there is some recognition for hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have direct conversations with staff and management teams on softskills. Break the cliques.

    Pros

    Manager levels and above have a lot of flexibility. Everything varies depending on the group you are with.

    Cons

    There are some unreasonable expectations being that it is a client facing business. Working late, weekends, and last minute are all expected.
