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.

    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.
