Pros

Great learning experience, technical knowledge, professional skills, opens doors for follow-on career opportunities. Well connected internationally, and good opportunities for learning outside your core function.

Cons

Politics is not bad, but your fate can depend on one person. Performance management has room for improvement as grading system puts 80-90% of people in "average" rank. Managers may be reviewed by Sr. managers, which is almost similar to being reviewed by your peers - huge conflict of interest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in senior leadership. Do not promote someone to partner or director, just because warm body is needed in that corner office.

    I have been working at KPMG US

    Pros

    It has the reputation in the accounting industry. Thus, it's good to put it on your resume. The training program is good, and you get to meet great people. I think it's a very good place to start your career in accounting.

    Cons

    The work hours are obviously worse at Big Four. Work life balance is not necessarily something you can expect all year round.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    KPMG has been slow at adopting paperless audit program, when compared to other Big Four. The audit program that has been used is extremely inefficient. Perhaps benchmarking may be a good idea.
