Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

I gained experience in sales and use tax compliance while working for a Big 4 firm.

Cons

LOTS of turnover since Feb. 2012. I know of interns at smaller firms that make more than our Senior Associates. The work is redundant. Doesn't "feel" like you work for a Big 4 firm (no interaction with partners within SALT or employees in other service lines. Not a diverse office by any means.

Advice to Management

Increase compensation, become more involved in the career planning of Associates and Sr. Associates.

    Pros

    KPMG gives you the opportunity to get great exposure to a variety of industries and a good variety of assignments (on the advisory side).

    Cons

    - Work/life balance is a farce unless your family places professional success ahead of quality time.
    - No diversity within managers and partners, which discourages minorities from staying with the firm long term.
    - Not enough green initiatives to reduce administrative time of staff and managers.
    - Performance ratings and promotions are more based on which managers/partners champion you versus your actual merit.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of good talent is leaving the company based on the aforementioned cons, especially minorities who don't feel they have a true place in the firm.
