    I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company provides 5 weeks of paid vacation and early out on summer Friday's. There is a lot of technology to get your hands and feet wet with but it comes at a price

    Cons

    Every decision is questioned all the way up to the executive director level. Lack of work life balance, executive directors stated in the last department meeting that you should be putting in at least 50 hrs per week. I can't tell you how many 60+ hr weeks I've put in.

    We have had problems keeping new employees due to the crazy hours and work load, we've lost 5 in the last year. Work 8 hrs during the day then work at night to making changes?

    Advice to Management

    If changes can only be at night hire a second and maybe third shift. If you say KPMG stresses a work life balance then prove it, don't make the exception the rule.

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

    Pros

    - Flexible and you can manage your hours (if you work with the right people)
    - Fun, smart, and driven people
    - Interesting and challenging projects

    Cons

    - Difficult to move around within the firm due to general lack of desire to share resources or allow ease of movement between groups / practices to better and more quickly align people with their skillsets / strengths
    - Hard to maintain work/life balance - long hours
    - Training materials / courses are not very helpful - learning on the job and picking up on things yourself quickly is key

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time/money on quality training and course materials; allow and encourage more movement within the firm
