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

Pros

You do have a "better" schedule compared to most public accounting jobs. Although, being in the Federal government practice, you have a very tough busy season in October and November.

Cons

In the Washington D.C. Federal practice, if you work here, it benefits you only if you plan on going to work for the government in the future. If you want to work for a private company of any sort, working here will not benefit you at all. Most people enter public accounting to get a vast experience in different fields. However, if you're in this practice, you will not get those experiences.

    Pros

    Great company to work for and the people are great.

    Cons

    - Legacy Audit mentality which hinders the Advisory practices

    Advice to Management

    - Manage Advisory outside of Audit and remove some of the service restrictions.
