    Pros

    my experience was great and learned alot in my time there. there people were exceptional. very friendly, very smart, and always willing to help. i was able to sign up for recruiting and share my experiences with recruits, which i found rewarding. events were always fun, and there was always something to do.

    Cons

    the hours were the main downside of working at kpmg. alot of driving and clients not near your home. be prepared to work long hours, including weekends. most work is expected and clients view you as the enemy.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the training of staff to make them more effective at clients.

    Pros

    They offer exposure to various industries. There is a great deal of prestige associated with a Big Four firm. They have a very strong and very ethical leadership team in the local office. They offer competitive salaries, benefits and a wonderful career springboard into industry. The audit training provides good project management, supervisory and critical thinking skills.

    Cons

    They are relatively rigid and risk management focused - justified by their line of business. They tend to be reactive rather than proactive, relative to developing their lines of business. They tend to operate in a fairly black and white zone.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to better balance practice and business development with risk management
