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

    Pros

    Work with smart people
    Respect the individual
    Great opportunities for advancement
    Great brand for your resume
    Long maternity leave
    Lots of vacation time
    $2500 training budget/year

    Cons

    Virtually no work-life balance
    Lots of overtime (unpaid)
    Lots of travel
    a "sink of swim" philosophy about getting up to speed on new information

    Advice to Management

    Do better to accommodate families/women with more opportunities for true 40-45hr work weeks. Most people I know who left didn't get promoted or burned out.

    Pros

    KPMG values and puts all of their employs first above all. They also have a top notch learning and development program.

    Cons

    Since it is the smallest of the Big 4, it has a long way to go in order to be number 1. Sometimes there is a biased perception by clients because we are number 4.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule / remote. Allows for excellent work / life balance.
    Great benefits.
    Ability to transfer into different networks / roles.

    Leadership does not seem interested in staff level concerns / input as it relates to implementing changes that are unnecessary and add no (perceived) value to either the department or client teams they serve.

    Advice to Management

    Consult with your staff level employees on pros / cons of current processes / procedures before implementing new changes as we are the ones doing the heavy lifting and can provide more insight on value add activities / training opportunities.
