Doesn't Recommend

I worked at KPMG full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great career opportunities (travel, clients, skill development, upward movement) available for the proactive employee.

Cons

Unfocused leadership, terrible work-life balance, employees can be promoted too quickly not possessing the necessary leadership, inconsistent initiatives and execution, new employees treated like resources ("full-time equivalents") with little concern for career development, minimal accountability in management; a grind or die atmosphere.

Advice to Management

Only promote staff to managers who can't actually manager people not who only do their own work well; cut down on initiatives that fade quickly, upper management needs to be much more accountable and actually inspire their "full-time equivalents" and not always shuffle the blame. Overall the career opportunities and bonuses were good, but the leadership, work-life balance, and culture were not. It was laid back but still a grind, which didn't fit. It was a good place to start my career, but after year two it was a terrible slog and I wish I left sooner. I would not recommend KPMG to a friend or colleague, and would advise them to look into another Big Four.
