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

    Pros

    Awesome training, highly motivated people, open to transfers within the company (location or practice), culture of coaching younger staff, clear path of progression within the company for younger employees

    Cons

    Long hours, salary could be better in comparison with other big four, not all managers are necessarily "management material", many of the people there are perfectionists to the point where it can sometimes be detrimental to the overall goal of engagements.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote everyone to manager who is a good senior associate, not all "producers" have the soft skills necessary to be successful.

    Pros

    Great company culture and employees

    Cons

    Nothing really to complain about. It's public accounting at a big four, you know what you're getting into

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Sometimes the job can be very flexible. During summer, I work from home once every week or two. Also, Jumpstart Fridays are great (leave the office at 3pm).

    I've met some great people at KPMG trainings from different practices.

    A lot of happy hours and team lunches/ dinners.

    Cons

    When newly hired, you are thrown into the ocean and forced to learn how to swim. I had no real experience with IT Advisory and learning was frustrating because of lack of guidance.

    The job is VERY tedious and lacks the growth to learn any hard skills. I feel like I am loosing opportunity to grow my career by staying at KPMG. Each day here feels like a day I wasted.

    KPMG expects you to be a slave to the firm. For about 16 weeks a year I find myself working 55-70 hour weeks with no extra compensation even though I am only scheduled to work 40 hrs a week.

    KPMG expects your job to be your life. They expect you to be dedicated to the job like it is a startup.

    Advice to Management

    Not enough Indians, too many Chiefs.
