KPMG is a great place to work but there will be lots of travel

I have been working at KPMG US full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Transparency from upper management on direction of firm, performance expectations, and compensation

Provides excellent training opportunities on various industries and technical competencies including Accounting, IT, and Risk Managment

Strongly encourages building mentoring relatinships amongst staff level and management level employees

The firm values teamwork and diversity and their committment to these attributes is not fake like a lot companies. They truly value the input of people with different backgrounds and experiences and share knowledge throughout the firm unselfishly.

Cons

Job requres high volume of travel since they have a national approach to servicing Adivsory (consulting) clients.
Limited control over which clients you get work on. Unless you are at the Partner level or generate your own projects at clients there is a limted amount of control over which clients or industry types you will work on. This could be a challenge if you are trying to develop into a subject matter expert in a particular industry

    Former Employee - Corporate Finance in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Lots of teamwork, lots of project variety, great people who really know their stuff. They didn't get where they are without doing good work. There is also the chance to get professional qualifications and they are very understanding about work/life balance.

    Cons

    No real cons, excellent firm. They do a lot of different things so perhaps may be difficult to receive personalised attention in such a large firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps strengthen the consulting arm. There has been lots of consolidation in the industry with competitors like Deloitte and PWC taking over firms like Monitor and Booz. KPMG should look for and take advantage of these inorganic growth opportunities.
