    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Supposedly brand name which would help to open doors for your next job
    Comfortable staff lounge

    Cons

    Partner keep on changing strategy e.g. my specialized sector was no longer a focus and I was plugged into multiple industries therefore becoming a generalist
    People are treated as resources and plugged into any project team
    Long working hours and high expectations with no help given
    Missing knowledge gaps in a lot of peers
    HR is basically a facilitator as they don't interview you at all therefore hiring manager is the only decision maker

    Advice to Management

    Decide on which sectors you would like to be known for and work on them. Don't think that you will be known overnight just for 1 transaction. Don't ruin careers just because you have a change of strategy and force people off the team. HR policies are weak and ineffective as they just take hiring manager's words and employee words as redundant.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Just like others, they offer salaries.

    Cons

    There are so many fallacies with this firm. It’s family business not a multinational firm. There are no HR policies rather discriminating HR policies. Not a professional work environment. If you are a relative of the leaders then you have all chances of growing in this firm because:

    - You don't have to be qualified to grow.
    - No need to have desired skill sets to grow.
    - No need to work for long hours.
    - Year on year have 'exceptional performance rating' and every year a promotion + bonus.
    - Training/ conferences to Europe are like honeymoon trips.

    There are clear discriminating HR policies in the organization. Many qualified and good people left KPMG Kuwait because growth was limited to sons/relatives of the partners and their favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up!
