    I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exposure to high profile clients and projects; kpmg name on cv

    Cons

    Incomparable salary brackets, perpetuates. "Us and Them" culture. Old fashioned and exclusive "partners lounge", few and insignificant general staff benefits; Long hours and no thanks; HR only exists as "People and Culture" and as there isn't any protection or union for staff, all issues reported to "People and Culture" are sent to staff's line manager as the interest is only to protect the company; (in-spite of job adverts) inflexible work/life balance for staff under a certain threshold, leave withheld at managers discretion, patronising culture downwards.

    Advice to Management

    Improve staff benefits, including annual leave allowance conditions; support a genuine work/life balance for all employees not just those over $100k; if all staff are expected to work until job is done then encourage partners to cultivate and act upon feelings of THANKS, improve lower tier salaries and include bonuses for all staff.
    Allow leave to be taken when needed, not just at line managers discretion; introduce HR practices which support staff AND the company, not the PPC which is a farce for employee support.
    Make the company somewhere where people want to work, and be proud of, not just because of the name, and not just because the rich get richer and poor are unappreciated.


  2. "Good opportunity to learn"
