    Pros

    There are very few companies that can afford the marketability of a big 4. Credibility is built in, so it looks great on your resume. It is what you make it, so what you can learn is expansive.

    Cons

    There are certain "types" that have great advantages in advancing - those able to sell. Regardless of what they tell you, this is the difference maker. Perhaps you can learn this skill, but the point is you MUST learn or have it.

    Advice to Management

    Performance management system is bad. I don't mean it can use improvement, I mean it is bad. You must get rid of the all-too subjective grading system and make recognition more systematic. You penalize employees that "let the work speak for them" and award those who "tout themselves". While self-promotion may be a trait common for executives, it is skewed at KPMG.

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

    Pros

    Organizational skills development
    Good training
    Flexible work schedule
    Great vacation benefits

    Cons

    Although flexible hours, work load is enormous. During busy season may work over 80 hrs per week.
    A lot of emphasis on time budgets, pressure to complete things fast and quality often suffers
    Work can get mindnumbingly boring

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic expectations
    Inform staff of scheduling changes right away
    Be direct and honest
