    I have been working at KPMG

    Pros

    International and global opportunities. Exposure to wide range of business entities and practices. Some really great people are there. Some wide ranging tools and learning opportunities available.

    Cons

    Edmonton office is severely dysfunctional. Corporate values are talked about but the reality is that every Partner operates their own little personal fiefdom. No standards, no process consistency. Very unsupportive of personality.

    Advice to Management

    do what you say you are going to do
