      Negative Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

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

      Pros

      Lots of opportunities to advance Smart individuals Rich and varied work experiences

      Cons

      Only really care about you if give your life to them As good as your last achievement. In other words, very short term memory Lots of bureaucracy and red tape to get anything done. Lost a couple clients recently because of silly things that we thought that mattered.

      Advice to Management

      They are used to high turnover and just accept it. KPMG has lost market share in the recent past and paying attention to your most valuable resources might help turn things around.

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

      Pros

      good benefits, decent salary, great view from office

      Cons

      went to desk hoteling - people end up sharking and spending too much time looking for a space; management for the group i was in - beyond playing favourites - didn't even reprimand senior managers for asking levels below to re-direct billable hours to non-billable so it wouldn't ruin the budget (but would hurt the associate's total needed billable hours)

      Advice to Management

      learn to work with better ethics realize you have humans, not robots working for you...work/life balance

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at KPMG full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      There is a really great benefits packages for pension/health/personal care etc.

      Cons

      There are a lot of internal politics when getting to the Senior Manager level and above. It does not make for good teamwork or a growth mindset environment. Too much of a competitive environment where seniors try to pit you against your colleagues (that is how they promote development/new business) rather than build people up as a team . Results in a lot of backstabbing and underhandedness. There is a lot of favoritism...
