I worked at KPMG full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Lots of teamwork, lots of project variety, great people who really know their stuff. They didn't get where they are without doing good work. There is also the chance to get professional qualifications and they are very understanding about work/life balance.

Cons

No real cons, excellent firm. They do a lot of different things so perhaps may be difficult to receive personalised attention in such a large firm.

Advice to Management

Perhaps strengthen the consulting arm. There has been lots of consolidation in the industry with competitors like Deloitte and PWC taking over firms like Monitor and Booz. KPMG should look for and take advantage of these inorganic growth opportunities.

    Pros

    Wide range of industries served make for a diverse field of employees. Don't need to be a numbers person to contribute.

    Cons

    Limited by the individual. We can all get in the way. Best plan is to set a course and stick with it.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Transparency from upper management on direction of firm, performance expectations, and compensation

    Provides excellent training opportunities on various industries and technical competencies including Accounting, IT, and Risk Managment

    Strongly encourages building mentoring relatinships amongst staff level and management level employees

    The firm values teamwork and diversity and their committment to these attributes is not fake like a lot companies. They truly value the input of people with different backgrounds and experiences and share knowledge throughout the firm unselfishly.

    Cons

    Job requres high volume of travel since they have a national approach to servicing Adivsory (consulting) clients.
    Limited control over which clients you get work on. Unless you are at the Partner level or generate your own projects at clients there is a limted amount of control over which clients or industry types you will work on. This could be a challenge if you are trying to develop into a subject matter expert in a particular industry
