    Pros

    Gets too busy that time flies so fast. Ok environment to work in because everybody works and not much time to socialize so work gets done right away.

    Cons

    Hard working with procrastinators because they always hold back until the last minute and everything becomes a rush all of a sudden and everything gets pushed back. Not fair to those people who plan ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your staff for their suggestions and listen to them. Working in any staff department is like we're the bottom of the barrel and I wish we could get better raises and bonuses next time.

    I worked at KPMG (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very good company to work and grow as long as there is a need or project and get along with your superior.

    Cons

    expect working way more than 40 hours/ week, and no loyalty, they would let you go in a very short notice when there is no billable work when your superior cannot secure a chargeable project at no fault of yours!!

    they say they believe in work/life balance, but it doesn't always turn out that way. but, it just depends on each circumstance

    flexibility, good benefits, diverse roles, working for the right people in the right group you can really grow quickly and move up the ladder,

    too many people in middle management, too many years to make partner, too much admin, not enough focus on technical skills, with the wrong group leader your career can be hamstrung

    eliminate the middlemen, focus on technical skills, reduce years to partner even if that means increasing turnover
