Pros

Career progression and brand name are the two reasons why I decided to join KPMG. They really know how to treat their employees well. The Houston office has bought Cirque du Soleil tickets for everyone in the office, and they have rented a yacht to have a party on. In the tax department during busy season, there is always free food, and they buy dinner for you ever night. The benefits are top notch as well. I think it is the only company that gives you five weeks vacation starting off.

Cons

It is very structured. Your career progression is not really based on performance.

Advice to Management

I would tell them that they are doing a great job.

    Pros

    The experience gained in the first few years. You will join KPMG and realize that college did not teach you very much about auditing, however KPMG does do a good job of teaching you. The experience you learn in the first 2 years is irriplaceable and would take much longer to gain at other companies.

    Cons

    The compensation and hours worked. Depending on who you work with you may work 8 hours and accomplish everything you need to, or you may be stuck with someone who just works to work and will keep you there 12 hours for no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Make the engagements more efficient. KPMG seems to have built in inefficiences, that can be real frustrating to staff when they keep you from having a personal life.


  2. "Working mothers be wary"

    Pros

    Big 4 status. Training and access to major clients

    Cons

    Political. No support for working women. Basically, they will assume that you will be calling in sick for your kid's sake and will purposely exclude you from key engagements. If you are not chargeable for a little while, then there is negative perception and your opportunities to get other engagements are lessened. You need to devote too much of your time in building relationships for advancement otherwise no-one would speak up for you.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management has good intentions but they need to support working mothers initiatives
