    Pros

    KPMG India, one of the Big Fours and the oldest in India is a great organisation to work with. I have worked with the company for 6 months now and I have come across some really good people here. Very friendly, very helpful and coming from different academic backgrounds, are very knowledgeable as well which makes working here an amazing experience. They conduct many trainings to enhance the skills of their employees to help them in their assignments.

    Cons

    I personally haven't come across any problems in my time with KPMG till now.

    I worked at KPMG US full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If put across well, management tries to help by providing work from home and such other options to the employee.
    Internal increments are good.

    Cons

    No work life balance at all
    Client is the king at the cost of Employee
    Lack of motivation due to no recognition by the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since it is a growing firm, it should be more employee friendly company rather than being client-oriented only.

    Pros

    Due to high standard maintained by KPMG globally, KPMG India office also has good standard of work. Some good projects and brand name of KPMG can provide a platform for better roles outside

    Cons

    Not employee friendly, does not pay well. I was in a non-Audit team. Management does not have vision for advisory & corporate finance (IB). Attrition is high, generally teams are not working in cohesive manner

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on retaining employees, top management should also dirty its hands, get involved & add value to the projects
