    I worked at KPMG full-time

    Pros

    They pay for you to get your designation
    You get loads of exposure to big companies
    You learn to pick things up quickly, because you have to.

    Cons

    Long hours during busy season
    Pay isn't great
    Kind of repetitive
    Have to travel quite a bit, but that can actually be a positive if you have the right perspective.

    Advice to Management

    You know your business model well, so keep doing what works. Know that most people are there to learn, get their designation and get out, so if that is what you offer, be authentic about it.
