    I have been working at KPMG US as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The employer really invests in human resources and have long-term plans for the good employees. The structure us flat, so that even an intern gets to work with the partners. People are very friendly and always willing to help. Working hours are very decent and people are also very understanding when it comes to personal issues.

    Cons

    I could hardly say something bad about the company. The competition is high, but the most important thing is that they like you as a person.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Central (Hong Kong)

    I have been working at KPMG US full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Brand name, however tarnish by some recent scandals
    - Market pay, better than other 2nd tier accounting firms but slightly lower than the other big 3
    - Good training
    - Reasonable working hour

    Cons

    - Jobs are gradually shifting back to the Mainland offices. Since those partners and senior managers do not have much skills other than audit and the lack of business sense, they can go no where other than staying in the firm. The combined effect is that there is not as many opportunities as before for junior staffs to get to more senior level.

    - People management staff is forever changing. Every staff feels there is a pressure of downsizing from time to time. Staffs morale can not be lower.

    - When I say horrible management system, I meant it is managed by people. Strong favoritism exists for some managers / senior mangers for job allocations. Some male managers book some other female staffs having other things in their mind other than simply work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop staying in your room focusing on administrative work alone. Some of your changes are costing more than it benefits the firm. Go out of your room and find business for the firm.
