    I worked at KPMG (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent place to start your career as you gain very insightful business knowledge across a broad spectrum of industries. When you're fresh out of college, this is an amazing start and will help benefit your career in the long run, just expect to stay for at least 3 years.

    Cons

    Expected to work long hours for months on end. The second you have down time, they would ship you out of town to staff other engagements, sometimes not always the best locations.

    I worked at KPMG full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job stability and good salary. Intelligence and ambition are rewarded, provided you have a good advocate.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost. Unless you happen to land a good assignment, it is hard to get upper management to notice you. Benefits just ok. Used to be better.

    Advice to Management

    None.

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

    Pros

    Generally friendly people across all practices, but always some outliers; appears to be growing rapidly. Great opportunity for involvement in complex tax matters but need to be in with the right people internally.

    Cons

    Same politics everywhere. Even if managing a lot of revenue it's tough to get merit recognition. Over-emphasis on the wrong metrics.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate success metrics. New rating system appears to be a step in the right direction but also might just be a smokescreen masking the same old scoring system of 1-5.

    Pros

    - Per Diem
    - Travel Opportunities
    - Contact with and exposure to upper level management at clients
    - Clear promotion path and structure is in place

    Cons

    - Incredibly long hours...I know it's expected in Big 4 audit, but 80 hours for half the year is unreasonable
    - Discontinuity in scheduling and last second changes, making it impossible to have a social life or have any sort of plans
    - Long drives to some client sites
    - Poor industry training

    Advice to Management

    Try to develop a clear plan and continuity for staff.
