    Former Employee - Senior NDPPS Representative in Dallas, TX

    I worked at KPMG full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. The company as a whole is a great place to have a career.

    Cons

    Management stays around to long, which makes it hard to move up in certain departments.

    Advice to Management

    Promote your best employees because tenure doesn't assure that you have the right people in the position. My manager had no idea of what it took to do my job and made it known often. She was over a design department without any design experience or equipment knowledge at all.

    I worked at KPMG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People - the people are (mostly) great and fun to work with / smart to learn from
    Benefits are pretty good

    Cons

    Salary was on the low side (especially for the hours put in)
    The hours could be rough (like any big 4) and expectations of nights and weekends in the busy season was not uncommon

    Advice to Management

    Pay more and you'll get the best employees who'll stay longer
