      I have been working at KPMG full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      - access to a large network of professionals - access to clients from different industries - the potential to learn a lot about Audit and Tax

      Advice to Management

      Need better career coaching Easier to quit and come back with the desired position than stay and try to move internally
