    Pros

    The people are fantastic, management is supportive. Overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    As with any workplaces KPMG will have things to work on - there are certain teams which I would not wish to be a member of. I do think though that if you have the capability and charisma you can get yourself to anywhere you wish within the firm.
