I have been working at KPMG US full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Flexibility on my team is great, however I still find myself working on my off-time. Co-workers are great and team work is key.

Cons

Starting pay is always good, but in CSS the increases are extremely minimal and no bonuses if you're under a manager level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start taking some of the feedback the employees are giving. High Performance Culture without High Performance Pay is NOT worth the extra work.

    Very conservative, risk-adverse, "button-up" organization

    I have been working at KPMG US full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    KPMG is one of the "big four" so there are natural advantages of being part of this large matrixed organization with cross-functional, cross-geography and in-depth focus across industries. The leadership generally truly seems to care about the employees and the commitment to diversity and the community are there (at least on paper).

    Cons

    KPMG is a good place for Tax and Audit professionals. While Advisory is the largest source of growth, it's lagging in terms of the organizational commitment - this might be a good place for Advisory in 3-5 years as the practices mature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less hierarchy would help retention and engagement

    I worked at KPMG US full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    good brand, good exit options, great pay for fresh graduates from undergrad

    Cons

    No work life balance, but should be expected in any other accounting companies. Big company, very bureaucratic, need to side with the right people to move up. Upper managers don't care about you as long as you get the job done, even if you have to stay all night.
