Good benefits, and they delivered on promised variable comp in high-performing business units for those who met their target goals. They are definitely focusing on innovation over last couple of years, creating new solutions and providing new career path opportunities. They have a huge learning capability with high-quality training across an impressive array of industries, skills and methdologies. They are serious about continuing education for employees they make time and provide content. Some of it is pedantic, but a lot of it is really great. They are taking steps to overcome their stifling paternalistic culture and shift to a more diverse-friendly, performance based and collaborative environment.
There are still large pockets of the organization stuck in the traditional, hierarchical, stuffy model where the partner thinks he is a god and those who want to advance their careers act like they agree with him. There is still a disturbing lack of diversity in top leadership. And if you don't like continuing professional education, don't come here - you will have to do a ton of online training initially and then hit heavy annual credit hours each year plus a super-target every 3 years. Also, you are significantly constrained on your investment portfolio, more so the further up the chain you are. And you could be required to immediately dump stock, an investment firm or your mortgage provider etc. if they become an audit client of the firm.
Advice to Management
We appreciate the motions you have made and the toddler steps you have taken, but we can't take you seriously until you actually walk the talk and address the lack of diversity at the very top of the US organization. Crunch the numbers and face the truth. You need to address gender-based salary inequities, failures to promote based on merit rather than old boy networks, failures to hire, support, and groom top talent from under-represented groups - women of color as a prime example. (I am not part of this group but it's obvious to anyone they have very limited presence except at the bottom layer of the organization.) You have some encouraging initiatives like KNOW but you need to get real and address your vanilla leadership profile. And, please - it's time to tell your high-visibility bad apple partners to shape up or ship out. You know who they are - and so do we.

I applied through college or university. The process took 6 days – interviewed at KPMG US.
30 -min face to face interview with the Director of the Advisory Services. On Campus interview. A very informal setting, relaxed and comfortable. They just wanted to know more about me and why I chose to apply and how this position could help me to advance in my career. They told a lot about the position as well.
