I worked at KPMG full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Smart and well-rounded coworkers that are enjoyable to work with.

Cons

The office I worked in was highly political. Management is not upfront and honest about things when straightforward communication is needed. Especially when critiques need to be made, management too focused on avoiding confrontation.

Advice to Management

People on the ground did not always have a great deal of respect for the project owner (usually a director).
