I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Decent salary, really cool projects opportunities to work for some really cool companies. Great opportunity to travel as well as take overseas assignments.

Cons

Bonus structure is not completely fair. Amount of bonus' are not very high, as they mainly support your business case on your utilization without considering other factors such as training, client support with non-billable hours as well as internal team development. Since these are not majorly considered, when you are working to make your team and kpmg a better company/performer, it does not reflect in your reviews/bonus, it may even be looked upon negatively by upper management as they are not informed in what you have accomplished for the teams internally.

Advice to Management

There are too many politics in each practice, there are a specific amount of promotion spaces each year and I have experienced that if you are not kissing up to partners whom may be in your practice but you have not had the opportunity to work with, you will not be promoted. If there are partners in your practice that you have not given yourself enough exposure to, you will be overlooked.

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice and friendly staff, no too many long hours working as administrator, great mentor system

    Cons

    Some people I work with are lazy and don't care about the job. Since everyone works as a team and also works independently, these people really take advantage of it.


  2. "Sr. Associate focused on process design, system integration, internal controls and data center consolidation."

    I worked at KPMG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great client base, excellent internal learning and training resources, knowledgeable directors and partners.

    Cons

    Consulting business tied to much to the audit lines of business and mentality of doing things. Loss preservation vs Value Creation led to some internal friction among divisions and groups.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to make cutting edge technologies and tools available to your consultants. Break away form the old audit mentality and focus on generating value as a true trusted advisor.
