Pros

Flexibility in time and location for doing work, Not a face-time place, Client and engagement diversity keeps it from being monotonous

Cons

This is not a 40 hour a week and totaly disconnect when you are at home company. They treat you like a professional but with that comes the expectation of acting like one and putting clients needs ahead of you own at times.

Advice to Management

Need more recognition of individual effort. Raises and bonuses are tightly banded so the difference between a "star" and average is currently minimal.

    "Exhausting, frustrating and unrecognized"

    Pros

    Obviously the largest benefit of working at KPMG is the fact that it is a Big 4 Audit firm. Having KPMG on your resume is attractive and can be beneficial to your career growth.

    Furthermore, I was very satisfied with the salary and benefits in my position.

    Cons

    In my division, there was very little recognition and management often spoke down to associates. I felt that my input was not appreciated.

    Furthermore, I was not the least bit challenged by my work. I spent most of my time editting existing documents and creating excel sheets. Management told me exactly how they wanted work to be completed and there was no room for flexibility. I felt there was no room for innovation and I never had the opportunity to bring my own contributions.

    Staffing on projects was rarely done by interests or expertise. As an associate, I was placed where I was needed and not where I was getting the development I needed. Furthermore, the company continued to hire industrial/organizational psychologists for technology implementation projects. Many of my peers and myself were bored by our projects because it did not relate to our backgrounds.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to show respect and appreciation to all employees. Especially since my division focused on human capital, it was shocking to see how people were treated. Whether management realized how they were treating others, I am hoping that my departure was a red flag for them.
