Former Employee - Senior Associate - Advisory in Seattle, WA
Former Employee - Senior Associate - Advisory in Seattle, WA

I worked at KPMG US full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Big 4 company, heard very positive feedback on employment from colleagues working at other practices. Each office location and practice has their own culture and that should be taken into consideration. My negative experience was not reflective of what I heard from other offices during my time there.

Cons

Job description did not match actual job, still a lof of the old Anderson culture remaining, excessive hours and mandatory weekends (2-3/months) year round (~70-80/hrs), high manager pressure to avoid any time off, poor leadership skills from management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get more HR involved to monitor more of the management practices with Associates and Senior Associates

    Pros

    Great company to work for and the people are great.

    Cons

    - Legacy Audit mentality which hinders the Advisory practices
    - Rates are high and results in more lost engagements than it should

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Manage Advisory outside of Audit and remove some of the service restrictions.

    I have been working at KPMG US full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1. Surrounded by level headed people, who are approachable, and can help you with any question. The biggest leverage for anyone according to me.
    2. Easy to approach the management with an issue.
    3. Lot of room for growth.
    4. Amazing volunteering opportunities, something that gives you a chance to contribute towards the community.

    Cons

    1. Big company culture, so if you are lost in the crowd, it can be unpleasant.
    2. Chances of being surrounded by frustrated people who can bring your morale down. Keep an eye for that.
    3. For starters it might take time to get on the right project, so hang tight and network around whenever possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. I wish they had a clear expectations laid out for staff level employees, to give them some benchmark, and confidence in their current role and their future with company. Might help to retain good employees.
    2. Though the training opportunities are amazing, a clear list of options to all the employees will be helpful.
