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

Pros

Pretty cool people
Big firm perks

Cons

The oldest technology and office I have ever seen (but they are moving to Aon in June/July 2012)
You never know your schedule.
I always seem to be working more than other associates.
Not a very flexible schedule since you have to work on manager schedules and some like to work 24 hours a day

Advice to Management

Get a life so you aren't working all the time, then your staff and seniors won't feel like they have to work all the time and maybe they would enjoy their job more

    I have been working at KPMG full-time

    Pros

    Resources, 5 weeks vacation, offices vary significantly by location.

    Cons

    Pay (not horrible, but not good), lots of hours, large corporate office.

    Advice to Management

    Stop TRYING to be near the bottom in compensation for Big 4 (this was explained in a company wide video that to be competitive, they try to stay in the middle to the bottom of the big 4).


  2. "Living up to expectations"
