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

Pros

The com pay is very diverse they hire people from all backgrounds, they are very family oriented, they provide exceptional training and they pair you with a career mentor within the firm. They have an amazing volunteering program and the PTO is 5 weeks if you are not stuck in multiple busy seasons.

Cons

Average work day is about 12 hours, clients are not efficient and effective, whatever practice you end up in you are stuck there for a couple of years. Salary could be better.

Advice to Management

Hire managers and Partners that actually contribute to the engagement.

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

    Pros

    Great training, benefits competitive with other international accounting firms, global mobility, ability to learn from the best, strong culture of values, networking

    Cons

    Work-life balance is unbalanced until you reach management, accounting firms tend to overreact to slow downs in the economy (i.e. massive layoffs and low compensation increases and incentive payouts during the financial crisis 2008-2010)
