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

    Pros

    (As a Mobility Specialist I deal with every area of the business, as well as assignees' and managers' globally)
    - Truly diverse, talented, and friendly colleagues throughout the business. Everyone I know is hardworking.
    - Developing people is core part of the KPMG culture
    - Opportunities for growth and interesting work - globally. Our Global Opportunities programme is available to all (service length applies) and is very well utilised.
    - Good Salary and Benefits - Lunch Allowance, Private Medical Care, Bonus etc. Everyone gets these benefits so there is no resentment amongst colleagues at the lower grades. creating a relatively harmonious atmosphere.
    - Excellent reputation worldwide. Viewed as a prestigious company amongst other employers.
    - Social programmes are another core value. Opportunities to volunteer, help the community.
    - Flexible working - whether location (home / offices) or time (Jump Start - leave at 3pm Fridays - or reduced working week) - the firm is very accommodating.

    Cons

    - UK Job titles can be confusing within grades - may not translate to your actual job role and responsibilities. Don't seem to have parity with the other 'Big Four'
    - I've seen better/more dynamic pension plans
    - Queues on the 5th and 13th Floor Restaurants at CSQ. I mean 15mins to get to the pasta station?! #Privileged #KPMGproblems

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that talent acquisition remains high on the company's agenda.
    Ensure that the employer reputation stays amongst the highest in the world.
    Keep innovating with employee incentives.
    Review job titles where possible - allow team members of specific business units to have input on this. An example - Assistant Manager is equivalent to Senior Consultant in other companies (Audit/Tax/Advisory). Coordinator is used instead of Advisor or Specialist (within
    HR). Assistant Manager or Consultant instead of Associate or Senior Associate (Legal / Immigration) - I feel parity with other firms' could potentially be attractive to prospective employees.
