    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at KPMG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are lovely and hours can be pleasant at times

    Cons

    A total lack of direction from the top at times, combined with opaque review and promotions makes for frustrating progression.

    Advice to Management

    Get a concrete strategy, drop the touchy feely jargon and get rid of the dead weight.

    I have been working at KPMG full-time

    Pros

    Great focus on people and learning; breadth of networking opportunities

    Cons

    Type of work within the consulting divisions is limited to frequency/ type of client engagements available, a lot of the work tends to be audit oriented. Consequently the more interesting work tends be highly sought after

    Advice to Management

    The reality of the job should be better reflected in the recruitment stage communication

    Pros

    KPMG invest heavily in training their graduates and school leavers, equipping them with the skills and leadership required to perform at higher grades

    Cons

    Long working hours, long commuting times in addition to this especially if you work in a regional office
