Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Exposure to many companies and industries
Excellent training opportunities
Networking with colleagues and clients
Various projects provide an opportunity to find your strengths

Having KPMG on the resume opens a lot of doors

Cons

Long hours
Several projects were understaffed

There is a lot of travel which can be a desired attribute until it wears on you.

While having KPMG on the resume opens doors, coming from Advisory/Consulting, it is sometimes hard to explain or relate that experience in accounting interviews. Hiring managers typically come from Audit and they expect audit experience. Make sure that you are exposed to external audit engagements.

Advice to Management

Look for signs that travel is wearing on good staff/managers.

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

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to work with a variety of companies from the inside, see their cultures, and how they operate. Good chance to build your skills in a couple of disciplines, which you can carry elsewhere if you choose to do so.

    Cons

    Can be long hours at time, especially near deadlines. Stress can be high, depending upon the style and experience of the person leading your team. The client may also pressure you, but that is because they expect good value for their investment.

    Advice to Management

    Training was very important, as was mentoring, Having someone you trust to go in order to ask the questions you might not want to ask your manager is very valuable.
