    I worked at KPMG US as an intern (less than an year)

    -Happy hours, free food almost every day in the lunch room, plenty of other events that were all paid for by KPMG.
    -Good people (for the most part).
    -The company has plenty of room for growth and even in a down economy they won't falter nearly as much as other companies might.

    Cons

    -As an intern my hours were capped at 40 hours a week (with occasional overtime). I didn't feel as if this was an accurate depiction of working there was really like.
