I have been working at KPMG US full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Senior client contacts, string brand, challenging work, varied engagements

Cons

Never quite sure who the boss is (makes the decision). I have often got the client, two different partners and a service line head pulling in different directions. Very little working together across partner revenue streams.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Saying your career is all up to you may sound great in theory but in practice it isolates people, supports predatory revenue behaviour, requires employees to solve the problem when it is a management problem and abrogates responsibility for employee engagement. One dimensional behaviours and OMS game playing become the norm. It also encourages personality based self promotion and the 'quiet' performers will be left behind.

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

    Pros

    I worked with a great group of people and made many connections there. I was able to gain some skills and exposure to an HR/Recruiting environment. It was a good start to my career. The people who you get to work with for the most part are genuinely very nice people.

    Cons

    Very low pay compared to their competitors and other companies.
    Hardly any opportunity for growth/learning. People stay in the same positions for years and go no where and have little to show for it.
    They don't award high-performers adequately (at least not on the HR/non-client serving side).
    The culture they've built wants you to constantly do more work and take on more responsibilities without compensating/recognizing you fairly for it.
    It seems as though people are leaving in droves and morale is fairly low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people. Pay them fairly. You can't ask them to give you everything and provide nothing in return because people see right through your "High-Performance Culture" nonsense.
