    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.

    Great people to learn and work with.

    While they have improved, there is still a strong hierarchy in place

    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.

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

    Pros

    Very fast growing n terms of technology
    Advisory is good, pays well
    work life balance is okay if you are in a good team under a good manager (i guess that hold for any company)

    Cons

    Their Tax Transformation Team sucks. They portray as they are doing some cool work but they are not. Managers are almost all Indians and will suck the life out of you.
    Salaries are really low as compared to market standards

    Advice to Management

    Change your management style specially in Tax Technology practice

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

    Pros

    The company does have very decent benefits. They also give some modest but nice gifts - e.g., a welcome gift for new hires and an annual summer gift of food (Omaha Steaks meat or ice cream bars). They also shut down for about 10 days at the end of the year, which is great!

    Cons

    VERY white male. Very poor treatment and promotion of women. Not welcoming of minorities. No innovation whatsoever. No true desire or ability to move away from risk in favor of strategy or management consulting.

    Advice to Management

    You really need more diversity in your leadership! You should also look more closely at the appropriateness of the behavior of men in leadership positions.
