    Positive Outlook

    I worked at KPMG as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the people I worked with were great. They were always willing to help. It can get very busy sometimes but during the summer it is pretty relaxing

    Cons

    They expect a lot from you so you must always do good work. There were some times where I had no work to do all day so it can get pretty boring even though those days were rare. You must satisfy the client even through tight deadlines

    Advice to Management

    My group was great, always responsive by email and always helpful. They are usually very understanding. I have no advice.

    Pros

    The firm actually reciprocates your hard work and effort. Work/Life balance is amazing. Able to work remote several times a month. Jeans every Friday, and you are allowed to leave two hours early every Friday during the summer. The firm subsidizes your commute to work. Many opportunities to grow with the firm.

    Cons

    Must be mentally prepared to work long hours during busy seasons but it evens out year round.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great leadership!

    I worked at KPMG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part of working at KPMG are the people. Audit teams are composed of people in their early to mid 20's so you naturally become close. Benefits are great. Looks great to future employers.

    Cons

    Long hours, I would regularly work until 11 at night and on weekends. Be prepared for a lot of company politics.

    Advice to Management

    I worked for managers who had big egos and liked to work their teams around the clock. This unfortunately tainted my experience.

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

    Pros

    Since the company is large, there are many resources available. One plus is the large amount of paid time off days you receive. Moving within the company and transferring to other geographic locations is fairly easy.

    Cons

    You are easily replaceable and management knows this. Long hours and lack of merit based bonuses. Salaries are below market and are not equal across the board for all employees at the same level. Employees do receive a good amount of vacation days, but it is very difficult to use these days.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries and bonus structures. Do not over-work your top performers. All top performers end up leaving the firm due to the lack of a work-life balance. Changeability is put on the staff and is an unnecessarily stressful metric. We should be doing good work and taking the time to do things right instead of worrying about our manager's budgets from low-bid projects.
