    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Environment of the Dallas EVS practice is great. Leadership is helpful and supportive of goals. I am enabled to use my intelligence and have the ability to ask for guidance when needed.

    Cons

    Depending on what practice you are in and how well your leadership develops business, hours will vary greatly, which is a strong component of bonus compensation. Some associates will get more work than others and its all based on the hand you are dealt.

    Advice to Management

    Not much, I work in a healthy environment that encourages growth. My only suggestion would be to create a system where associates and managers can bot see where there is capacity or a need for help. I know this is in the works, but creating a way for seniors/associates to actively seek out work would be helpful.

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

    Pros

    Reasonably Meritocratic
    Good learning environment
    Starting work with a peer class
    Management strives to improve culture

    Cons

    Not too many cons, really depends on what team/group you are on. My biggest con is the lack of role models and mentors, but this is on a case by case basis.

    Advice to Management

    Management has done a good job at improving culture and committing to their vision for the firm's future.

    At the associate level, there is no advice I can give.

    There are long hours and some years, the performance of the company overall can negatively impact pay (such as bonuses)
