    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at KPMG for less than a year

    Pros

    Great to have on your CV and a really good work environment.

    Cons

    Can have long hours, but the work is engaging and people are nice to be around

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps rethink your intern/new grad recruitment process, good GPAs don't translate, maybe use digital interviews/case studies? I feel for this role, well rounded people are better, and everyone's sort of a salesmen....
