Be more forthcoming with work quality feedback, maintain as much transparency as possible.

    Pros

    KPMG can be a great opportunity for recent colllege grads who are looking for audit, tax or consulting opportunities. The work life balance at KPMG has been a big plus, although recently the option for working from home 1 or 2 days a week has been withdrawn for IT employees.

    Cons

    Unfortunately tough times have led to: multiple rounds of layoffs within IT, bonuses are non-existent and salary raises are rumored to be frozen. Flexible work options like working from home 1 day a week have been cancelled. All training was cancelled and no one is allowed to take any training courses. Departmental and team meeting budgets were eliminated - so no teambuilding activities or even lunches anymore. Smaller perks like the annual Thanksgiving turkey give-a-way and summertime ice cream giveaway were eliminated. Morale is awful and rumors of continued layoffs in Jan or Feb of 2010 will likely keep employees on edge.

    Aside from the current economic climate and effects on KPMG, the overall IT climate is focused on outsourcing US jobs as a strategic initiative. Frequent re-organizations have led to overall slowdowns in any tactical or strategic projects, as well as focus management more on empire building/saving. All in all, I would advise prospective employees to wait 2+ years for things to settle down and for business to get better, hopefully leading to a return to a normal business climate internally at KPMG as well as to more material rewards i.e bonuses and perks.

    Advice to Management

    The current silent attrition program for IT is a poor way to manage through the challenging enviromnment and goes against the KPMG principle of integrity.
