    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at KPMG full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, good work environment, open policy

    Cons

    Horrible if you are working on a dedicated stream or anything different than the main line. They do not pay attention to you and you can get stuck and not get promoted, or paid according to industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of all your employees equally

      Pros

      Great team, lots of inspiring people

      Break room sucks, computer hardware isn’t that great and some of the tech is vastly dated

      Pay devs more, especially the junior ones if you want to compete.

      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...

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

      Pros

      - access to a large network of professionals - access to clients from different industries - the potential to learn a lot about Audit and Tax

      Cons

      - Career coaching is non-existent, it's just there to check a box - Managers are promoted based on #s and not their ability to properly delegate.

      Advice to Management

      Need better career coaching Easier to quit and come back with the desired position than stay and try to move internally

      I have been working at KPMG full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      The people are the greatest pro - lots of smart talented individuals / mentors, true camaraderie among staff (particularly at junior levels); Varied work and exposure to senior level clients; Benefits are good and there are opportunities to get involved with the community through the firm

      Cons

      The hours can be tough at times; Each person's experience of the firm will differ greatly from group to group

      Advice to Management

      You've created a strong culture - keep taking on board feedback from staff, particularly when it comes to work/life balance and compensation
