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.

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

    Pros

    Vacation days are nice. There are a lot of company parties and happy hours. Everyone is miserable so you are not alone

    Cons

    you are shipped around the tri-state area to fill HR gaps. Don't be surprised if you are given a ridiculosu amount of work to do your first day and told to look at last years workapapers to figure it out. They send you on week long trainings - where they have you share a room with a stranger.
