Pros

More independence once you become a Senior. Flexibility.

Cons

Unpredictable hours during final audits. Work load can be based on how much the manager participates and takes on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show all levels of staff respect, treat them with dignity, and don't push manager/partner tasks onto lower level employees. This creates an enjoyable environment where the team feels valued and respected and therefore will work harder and more efficiently.

    I have been working at KPMG US full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working here allows you to meet a lot of new people that are goal-focused, but kind at the same time. The company itself is a great place to start your career with - you get a clear career path, lots of studying material, a view of the inside of a big company's culture and, most importantly, the possibility to work with professionals. And all of the above in a friendly atmospehere.

    Cons

    The sole disadvantage is shared with all other simmilar copanies - heavy workload. However it does not affect interns as much as it does senior employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Melbourne (Australia)

    I have been working at KPMG US full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Senior client contacts, string brand, challenging work, varied engagements

    Cons

    Never quite sure who the boss is (makes the decision). I have often got the client, two different partners and a service line head pulling in different directions. Very little working together across partner revenue streams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Saying your career is all up to you may sound great in theory but in practice it isolates people, supports predatory revenue behaviour, requires employees to solve the problem when it is a management problem and abrogates responsibility for employee engagement. One dimensional behaviours and OMS game playing become the norm. It also encourages personality based self promotion and the 'quiet' performers will be left behind.
