    Pros

    A lot of "stuff" happening, you'll never be bored. There is plenty of stuff to sink your teeth into.

    Cons

    Draconian change rules. Upper management second guesses everybody or simply keeps asking everybody they can until they get the answer they like. 50 to 60 hours a week is the norm, anybody working less than 50 hours is considered by the executive directors to not be pulling their weight.

    KPMG has figured out how to obtain a 2nd shift without hiring a second shift, by forcing all changes to start at 9pm, sometimes later depending upon the area. This is after working a normal 8hr day. You're expected to be at work the next morning for a day of conference calls and planing your next set of changes.

    Advice to Management

    Higher more people. Honor your pledge of a work life balance. Pay attention to the number of hours people are putting in.

    I have been working at KPMG as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    For Technology jobs- Above average US compensation , Perceived Brand name , Easy Tech interviews . Long Term Contract . offer employee status but may accept to contracts at high rates.

    Cons

    Legacy tech with very conservative ( aka old !) processes where Engineers may end up loosing skill set doing odd jobs . Architects are power point driven , very limited access to resources . beware of opportunity presented to you and ask right questions and check for red flags before you leave your current job. Contractor are valued much less than employee for project allocation , access to resources. very few ( 1 out of 50?) are converted to employee .

    Advice to Management

    Guess 360 review will help to expose the gap . ask why contracting is hanging in year after year( hint : lost the edge doing mundane thing for employee )
