    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, Nice colleagues, Nice cliënts, lots of fun with colleagues. No real hierarchy noticeable. Many career opportunities.

    Cons

    Lowest salary in whole audit accountancy branche (2520). Deloitte & pwc pay 2650 while ey even pays 2850. Even the smaller firms pay more. Also mobility scheme is far worse and the first 100 hours overtime are not payed or time for time but just "hobby". KPMG says these hours are already in the salary but where exactly remains a mystery.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries and secundary working conditions as kpmg stays far behind on its competitors
