The knowledge I learned and most importantly the people I met helped me grow personally and professionally.

Audit Associate (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at KPMG full-time for more than a year

ProsPeople. You spend more time with your audit team than your own family and friends outside of the organization. KPMG truly believe the people make the company successful and I completely agree. I also enjoyed the ability to work on audits in various industries for the first years as an associate.

ConsLearning to multi task and interview clients that are not only your elders but high ranking levels of the firm. You work a ton of hours so the work, life balance concept suffers.

Advice to Senior ManagementI wish my mentors would have been more available to help me work on the areas that I struggled.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

It has been a decent experience so far.

Advisory Manager (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at KPMG full-time for more than 5 years

ProsMobility and opportunities to move around and change roles although only a recent change. I have been lucky enough to experince different roles and different offices. Firm is becoming more dynamic so change comes quicker and is tangible. Talent pool is on the rise for advisory so a lot of energy in the work environment.

ConsFirm doesnt match a 100% of the retirement plan contribution. Compensation could be better.

Advice to Senior ManagementFacilitate better 360 degree review opportunities so performance measurement is more objective and comprehensive. There is loss of talent attributable to sometimes the management group that sometimes does not act in the larger interests of the firm.
