    I have been working at KPMG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - technical resources are extensive, as expected with firms of this size and stature
    - there is solid support for acquiring certifications, at all levels

    Cons

    - training is severely lacking
    - there is inconsistency in audit quality (extent of work to be performed) not only between offices but also engagement teams
    - strong resistance to outsiders (however, this may solely reflect the culture at this particular office)

    Advice to Management

    - forced ratings will not benefit the firm in the long run

    I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to work with top tier clients in high profile engagements, especially for recent graduates.

    Cons

    As an Associate or Senior Associate, you have little control on which engagements you're assigned to. Work/life balance is non existent if you have a family or other responsibilities outside of work if you're consistently travelling.

    Advice to Management

    Work on providing better work/life balance for your workers. This will create better loyalty among your employees and assist in retain good employees.
