I worked at KPMG as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Terrific environment and good ERP infrastructure. Pays well for the consultants and Employees are highly empowered. Most of the work is done offshore and learning potential is good. As employee, I see the growth potential is huge. If you are contractor, you pay is appreciable.

Cons

Decentralization of controls and heavy politics. People seem to work together and like each other, but not so in reality. Several of KPMG Senior Management are looking at timelines than the bigger perspective and picture. Not the right right people in right place, I would say may be 2 to 3 out 10 are right skilled and doing their deliverables effectively.

Advice to Management

None..

    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.
