    I worked at KPMG full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Camaraderie with team was the best part. Great networking because everyone leaves eventually.

    Partner of practice and managers want to succeed, but partners don't know what they're doing. Failures pinned on consultants Unit I was in is poorly managed, no one cares, and the direction of the team is lost.

    Advice to Management

    Get your stuff together.

    I have been working at KPMG full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    great location nice building good office space people are friendly clear company goals

    Cons

    poor lower level management billing, collections and securities is a mess due to poor management

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is great. It's the lower level managers (admin managers) that are bad. They don't have the knowledge or the desire to assist the team, they just want to look good to upper management.
