    I worked at KPMG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great experiences with very intelligent, hard working professionals. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Managing young professionals that are very competitive and driven and prone to emotional breakdowns and frustration. One team goes in and sells the job, underestimating the number of people and time needed to complete. Another team walks in with unrealistic expectations leading to their frustration and the clients frustration.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront with expectations for internal and external stakeholders.

    Pros

    great client exposure, travel opportunities right away, great people to work with, industry leader in risk consulting

    Cons

    Work life balance, average compensation for workload, inconsistent growth projections and targets make bonuses and raises highly volatile and inconsistent

    Advice to Management

    inconsistent growth projections and targets make bonuses and raises highly volatile and unpredictable. Would appreciate more realistic targets to ensure groups achievements not overshadowed by ridiculous growth targets. 15% growth is lucrative and should be rewarded, even when goal was 16%.

    I have been working at KPMG full-time

    Pros

    The people are great and will go above and beyond if you ask for their help. One of the best things of working at a very large company is that there are so many resources for you - so someone will have or know the answer.

    Cons

    Not enough movement between projects.

    Advice to Management

    Move people around before they become unhappy.

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

    Pros

    I love the people I work with and the firm hosts a lot of events for networking within the office as well as events to support the surrounding community. Great place to learn and find great mentors. Promotions every year. Opportunities to manage people early in your career.

    Cons

    Significant hours during certain parts of the year. Also, if you get stuck on a team that you don't like, work can be miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing since it works. If you wanted to keep people around longer, maybe increase salaries. Not sure if that would work with the business model hierarchy though.
