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

Pros

the name recognition. I guess the doors it opens after youre an alumni

Cons

obviously the hours are no fun. but perhaps the group i was in left a much more sour taste in my mouth than the hours. I'm sure its based off different groups, but i heard stories from other members complaining abou the same issues. too much politics for my taste

Advice to Management

better training! i had zero training. was expected to learn the internal software on my own all the middle of a tax season.

    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.
