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

    Pros

    Work with young people.
    Exposure to industry management.
    Professional training.
    Ability to take extended periods of time off outside of busy season.

    Cons

    No work life balance.
    Little opportunity to steer your career in your desired direction.
    Some (not all) of the people beg the question: "How did you get hired?"
    Compensation is less than impressive (in spite of what the magazines say). You are underpaid, so does it really matter if the firm pays for a treadmill once a year.

    Advice to Management

    Give individuals more control of their career so that can pursue their interests and fulfill their potential. Why not give the best associates the ability to choose their clients?
    Consider paying more to attract better candidates than the other Big 4. It is pathetic that KPMG is the least reputable firm in the US, when it thrives in other countries.
