Pros

Great learning experience, technical knowledge, professional skills, opens doors for follow-on career opportunities. Well connected internationally, and good opportunities for learning outside your core function.

Cons

Politics is not bad, but your fate can depend on one person. Performance management has room for improvement as grading system puts 80-90% of people in "average" rank. Managers may be reviewed by Sr. managers, which is almost similar to being reviewed by your peers - huge conflict of interest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in senior leadership. Do not promote someone to partner or director, just because warm body is needed in that corner office.

    Pros

    The program KPMG has set up for intern in the marketing/communications department was very structured in a good way - your mentor ferries assignments and projects to you and can be a great asset to your internship. The work is challenging and helped give me a background in the industry.

    Cons

    Sometimes you are given busy work or someone tries to pass on a last minute assignment to you, as with being an intern anywhere. The experience far outweights the few detriments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster closer relationships with interns - lunches, meetings etc.

    Pros

    KPMG offers people right out of college a career with many of the their peers, which is a very young group to work with. PTO is great as well as pay for an entry level position.

    Cons

    Those that work hard ultimately suffer as they tend to get overloaded with clients and ultimately don't have any sort of 'work-life balance'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to track people's schedules and make sure they are appropriately balanced, as the same people can skate by doing minimal work, while the few carry the load for the rest of the team.
