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

Pros

Educational opportunities, chance to see many different operations, lots of on-the job learning. Good internal training/support.

Cons

Once you are at manager level, you are expected to do business development as well, and promotion opportunities depend on this. If I wanted to be a salesman I would have gone into sales. Also, it's the usual consulting arrangement - if you've done something once, you're considered the expert on that subject by your team; you have to talk to the client like you are, too.

Advice to Management

Make the business-development process more transparent, and provide more internal support for this.
