    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at KPMG full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The experience you get in Big 4 accounting is unmatched, the diversity in clients and processes will prepare you for multiple opportunities in the market place. KPMG has a very flexible work environment depending on your teams, the goal is for everyone to get their job done within the appropriate budget and on-time.

    Cons

    Long hours- due to staffing attrition the remaining team is stuck contributing long hours. There was a time when there was an official busy season, now its just busy. Like everywhere the politics rule here so, opportunities are granted in a haphazard manner.
