Former Employee - Graduate Trainee in London, England

I worked at KPMG US full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great people, good opportunities for training, great brand and plenty of options if you're able to move around.

Cons

Not a great work ethic and can occasionally get a bit hierarchical. Audit drives most of the firm and one can find it difficult to break away from that

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more aggressive but reward your good employees better.

    I worked at KPMG US full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Looks good on your CV
    Character building
    International brand, innovative
    Opens up opportunties outside of KPMG in the future

    Cons

    Long hours are expected particularly at busy season.
    'Extra -curricular' activities / work expected if you want to achieve promotion
    Economic crisis means usual turn over of qualified staff has not happened, many assistant managers fighting for very few managers roles at the minute promotion unlikely.
