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

    Pros

    KPMG are a friendly bunch

    Cons

    In some teams worklife balance is non/existent. If you take how many hours you work and the pay you get it probably isn’t much from Living Wage.

    Advice to Management

    They need to hire more people and recognise that working long hours are unsustainable.

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

    Pros

    Really nice atmosphere, live by their values.

    Cons

    Lots of transfers to other areas so flexible but not lots of promotion opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Practice internally what you sell to clients and look to apply staff skill set where it counts. So many wasted opportunities.
