    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Central (Hong Kong)

    I have been working at KPMG US full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Brand name, however tarnish by some recent scandals
    - Market pay, better than other 2nd tier accounting firms but slightly lower than the other big 3
    - Good training
    - Reasonable working hour

    Cons

    - Jobs are gradually shifting back to the Mainland offices. Since those partners and senior managers do not have much skills other than audit and the lack of business sense, they can go no where other than staying in the firm. The combined effect is that there is not as many opportunities as before for junior staffs to get to more senior level.

    - People management staff is forever changing. Every staff feels there is a pressure of downsizing from time to time. Staffs morale can not be lower.

    - When I say horrible management system, I meant it is managed by people. Strong favoritism exists for some managers / senior mangers for job allocations. Some male managers book some other female staffs having other things in their mind other than simply work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop staying in your room focusing on administrative work alone. Some of your changes are costing more than it benefits the firm. Go out of your room and find business for the firm.

    Current Employee - Associate in McLean, VA (US)

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

    Pros

    Work is hard and hours are long, but there are great amenities to the day-to-day work day (break rooms, food (sometimes free!), nice office space). Vacation time is plenty, even for entry level employees.

    Cons

    Nothing really to note. Moving up to the next level takes time, but it is standard for the type of employer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing to add. My time with the company has been great.
