    Positive Outlook
    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.
