    I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intellectually challenging, get to work with different companies in different industries, be part of a team, set career path for promotions, great benefits,

    Cons

    It's great to start off your career but in order to stay long term you have to be willing to give up any control you have over your time whatsoever. Doesn't matter how quickly you get your work done, you won't be able to go home at a normal hour. For some employees the hours are better in the summer but you can also be put on an engagement with a summer year-end which means your busy season can last for most of the year- which equates to 55-95 hour work weeks. It's just not healthy to have to sit at a computer for that many hours a day for 6+ months out of the year. Also gets in the way of time with family, having a social life, love life, etc. Also some offices have a lot of politics and favoritism is given to people with the right connections.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce work life balance. Don't allow offices to schedule employees on busy season clients year-round. 3 months out of the year might be manageable but any longer than that and even your high performing employees will get burnt out and unhappy and quit.

    I worked at KPMG as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers were like family. They hired some wonderful people and some that weren't. However, the people I was able to depend on made the job ten times better.

    Cons

    Boss only cares about himself. Unfortunately workers who are higher up the chain believe they can do whatever they want such as cussing and yelling at employees in front of others for no specific reason. Simply because they misheard something.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved and take better care of employees

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of days off, health insurance, good learning experience

    Cons

    Expect to work 80 hour weeks, including weekends during the busy season. They will put you on multiple busy season clients, regardless of how many you have done in a year, which sometimes results in 80 hour weeks for 4-5 months.

    Advice to Management

    Scheduling people for back to back busy clients doesn't make a lot of sense. Increases churn and burnout among employees

    I worked at KPMG (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Terrific group of team members, great opportunities to grow and advance career. Good training and mentorship programs. Good bonus, 401 k and insurance plan benefits.

    Cons

    At times, very practice focused as opposed to looking at things at a company-wide level. Greater use of internal technologies needed to help consultants to collaborate better.

    Advice to Management

    More focus and commitment required to have work-life balance. Greater investment required to develop local markets to provide good and sustainable opportunities in the local market.
