    I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good management
    - Flexible work arrangements
    - Great opportunities to develop as a professional, especially for someone entering the industry. Better than doing an MBA as working at KPMG provides you with a broad overview of the big businesses and public sector in Australia.

    Cons

    - No specialisation tracks, chaotic work assignment that is irrelevant to your skillset
    - "Bench shaming": If you are not assigned to client billable work, it's your fault, regardless of whether there is enough work. Partners and Directors should be accountable for not bringing in enough work, not the delivery staff.
    - Due to short-term engagements, you will hardly ever do anything stimulating. The engagement is over just when things start to get interesting. Doing anything useful carries risk and commitment, and KPMG is a very risk averse organisation.

    Advice to Management

    Have a long-term vision instead of focusing on quick wins.
