Pros

KPMG offers a very attractive career path with a relatively well defined promotion track. Typically a college graduate can make manager within 5 to7 years, and a manager title at KPMG is transferrable to just about any other company out there.

Cons

When working at KPMG you do not typically choose what assignments you are selected for. Some assignments involve heavy travel (5 days per week for over a year at a time). I've spent most of my career here traveling full time.

Advice to Management

KPMG would be a stronger company if they compensated employees based on performance. If someone is considered and "Excellent Performer" then they should be compensated in line with what other top performers.
