    Pros

    Excellent growth opportunities for new grads. This is a great place to start your career. You have opportunity to do global rotation.

    Cons

    This like other big four does not pay you very well especially when compared to private industries. Most people usually work long hours in order to succeed at this place.

    I have been working at KPMG (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, collegial atmosphere most of the time, decent benefits, generous time off, strong values and good leadership in most parts of the firm.

    Cons

    There are plenty of partners and leaders who do NOT live up to KPMG's values, which are heavily and consistently talked about and promoted throughout the firm. Certain individuals are allowed to continue to mistreat and/or abuse more junior staff members simply because they're "rainmakers" and the firm wouldn't want to cut them loose. Also, the gender discrimination issue is still very much a thing. This year's promotions "process" demonstrated that very clearly. It's pretty frustrating to see female colleagues working their tails off and taking on extra workload, only to not get promoted, because a few men have been "in line" longer. That's not supposed to be what promotions are based on (according to every HR presentation I've ever seen on this topic), yet that's how it went down this year. Very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair. Be consistent. Be HONEST. Think about diversity more -- not because you HAVE to, but because it makes good business sense. We stand to lose some incredible talent due to unfair promotion process. Live the Values, don't just TALK about them. Actions speak far louder than words.

    I have been working at KPMG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. Great atmosphere to create an efficient work environment. Company allows for massive amounts of growth as long as you work hard and put the effort in.

    Cons

    Cons for the company is that is has the potential to work long hours during a certain time period during the year.

    Advice to Management

    Advice would be to maintain the work environment so it can continually progress employees like they have been. Keep rewarding employees for the effort put in.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, time off, flexibility with schedule as needed (as long as work gets done)

    Cons

    It's a consulting practice, so hours can be very long to get things just right for the client. Some managers are better at communicating than others, especially around promised deliverables to client.

    Advice to Management

    Tell your staff you appreciate their hard work.
