    I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The ability to move horizontally across functions with relative ease allows for great opportunities to build your resume and business skills.

    Cons

    Long hours of work on overly demanding mid market clients. Constantly dealing with fee and budget pressures. The upper management doesn't appear to have the best "go to market" skills. Lots of direct entry partner hiring leaves you to question the financial health of the firm.


  2. "Long hours, little pay, LEARNED A TON"

    Pros

    It was an excellent finance education. I also had a lot of independance on my projects, even from the beginning.

    Cons

    The hours are long and there's little to no appreciation for the work you do. Everyone there has a date in the back of their head of when they're planning to escape. This is really just a great place to start.

    Advice to Management

    Associates and Senior Associates are aware of which Managers do not positively contribute to workload. Listen to feedback to know which Managers aren't worth keeping around.
