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

    Pros

    Global network, smart people, lots of responsibility at a young age, generally a delightful place to work

    Cons

    Talks the talk around training, and will fund courses - however most staff I have seen leave have done so as the business has repeatedly stopped them from attending professional development. This has been mostly due to a constantly urgent state of client delivery requirements, and a "they can work longer" default - rather than emphasis on workforce planning.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your mentality around education at a partner level.

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

    Pros

    The people who work here are always really nice and seem happy. You feel well looked after by the firm. Great flexible working environment, new offices in Sydney and Melbourne have permanent hot-desking so you choose a new place to sit each day and keep your items in a locker. Good technology to enable you to work from home or just about anywhere. Beautiful offices. Great employee benefits but you take a lower salary due to this.

    Cons

    Pay levels are capped and very hard to find career progression as a Personal Assistant
