    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.

    Pros

    Partners that actually care about their business.

    Middle managers do not care about the workers, and they they are better than everyone. A lot of hiding relevant information just so they do not look bad.

    You would not exist without the staff workers, so get off your high horse.

    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
