Pros

friendly outgoing work environment with great management and great opportunity for upward movement. great clients and exposure to clients. I would recommend the company to anyone

Cons

I have spent quite a few long nights on clients and the pay does not really reflect the time spent and effort put fourth. Upward movement is quick but it takes a while for pay to catch up.

Advice to Management

    Pros

    Travel opportunities are available
    Strong work ethic (mostly)
    Goes out of the way to be an employer of choice
    Takes "soft skill" training very serious (perhaps at the cost of technical training)

    Cons

    Very dependent on which country you work in
    Leverage of global expertise very limited
    Long hours expected
    Staff aren't always knowledgeable of the basics (i.e. they rise to a manager level to quickly without having experienced a lot of the practical aspects of the areas they are consulting in or auditing)

  2. Life in a student at KPMG

    Pros

    Overtime
    Articling Hours
    Big 4 Experience
    Big firm resources

    Cons

    You're just a #
    Everyone hates you
    As a first year you are considered crap.
    The best people leave before or just after they make Manager

    Advice to Management

    Need to be less cookie cutter when it comes to training first years.
