    I worked at KPMG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Recognizable brand
    Intelligent colleagues
    Hard workers

    Cons

    Weak talent development
    Want to invest little into your training and expect you to "hit the ground running"
    Lots of office politics and catering to senior staff at the expense of good juniors
    Can spend lots of time on the bench doing busy work due to lack of projects
    Most projects are change management heavy
    Don't win true HR work

    Advice to Management

    Stop catering to high maintenance Managers that don't actually manage. Focus on developing your people and actually giving your junior staff exposure to interesting projects. Incentivize leaders to lead and develop the people that report to them, instead of using them as scapegoats and pawns in their political games.

    I worked at KPMG full-time

    Pros

    Work culture. People you work with are some of the smartest you'll meet. They're also willing to help you. Ask questions. You also move up annually wrt promotion if you keep pace with the work. As a staff, you can talk to the Partner if you need to. Might be more due to the city you're in. Not sure if that is possible in bigger cities.

    Cons

    I started in Jan vs Oct, so smack at the start of busy season. I didn't find the environment very inclusive, or people making efforts to feel you welcomed. But that could be because it was peak season mode. I ended up meeting people based on the jobs I worked.

    You don't have time to do anything else lol.

    Pros

    They provide a decent amount of vacation every year and their benefits are fair compared to other big fours.

    Cons

    Higher compensation would be always appreciated. Also it feels like hours and efforts that we put are not well recognized.
