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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at KPMG full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    1. Good people in the local office.
    2. Decent benefits package.
    3. Challenging work environment.
    4. The original culture used to be very nurturing and productive.

    Cons

    1. Annual performance review process is a joke. Hard work and dedication get you nothing. Promotions are based on strategic need and politics, not merit.

    2. Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Unrealistic expectations combined with being perpetually understaffed has lead to stressful working relationships with upper management.

    3. Organization's reliance on layoffs and outsourcing has damaged its' core heath and weakened the underpinnings of its' operational effectiveness and culture.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership need to make the heath and continuity of the IT organization a priority. Weak upper management and politics continue to impact ROI. Stop laying off people to pay for your mistakes and mismanagement.
