    Pros

    Lots of growth and opportunities to work on big client engagements.

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

    Pros

    5 weeks of PTO which is very rare in corporate America
    Good people
    Commitment to community service
    Intelligent employees
    Feedback is valued at the younger levels

    Cons

    Little financial incentive to become an audit manager, although I guess that is by design.

    Scheduling can place you on a client very far away from your house

    I have been working at KPMG as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a great firm to start your career and the name recognition is unmatched. I enjoyed the people that I worked with and share the same values as the firm.

    Cons

    They preach that they'll do everything in their power to make their employees happy - at least as an intern I haven't always found this to be the case. They focus more on fitting a need than putting people on clients they are interested.
