    Pros

    Obsessive focus on clients and business problems. A great way to learn about businesses across a number of industries. Work you like a dog but you learn a lot. KPMG hires smart and energetic people so you will be surrounded by interesting and stimulating co-workers who challenge you to come up with ever more creative solutions to clients' issues. Perhaps the most entrepreneurial culture of any Big Four firm. Great place to build a career if you are a self-starter.

    Cons

    Hard work and long hours, especially for management-level folks who do the proposal writing and backstop delivery. Occasional bait-and-switch with bonuses. Partners are stretched so thin that they are unavailable for important meetings. Lots of travel (could be a pro for some). Career paths are not well-defined (especially for those with superior technical skills) and it takes a lot of determination to get the guidance and training needed to advance and keep skills sharp. Budgets for external training are poorly defined and approvals are completely discretionary, which makes it difficult for staff-level personnel to get anything other than internal training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR and new performance management system (High Performance Culture) suck. Advisory University is a poor substitute for other types of training. Protect training budgets more: training budget is often available when everybody is busy and can't get to training, but it is the first thing to be cut when things slow down and people have more availability for training.

    The work environment is not at all good, no work ethic amongst senior professionals and no accountability

    Pros

    Good brand name on CV, though over the years the brand name is getting diluted. Tasks are not challenging and do not reflect what is needed for CV

    Cons

    The Senior Management lie to people and the most unprofessional set of people in any organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your partners to be more accountable.
