KPMG – Why Work For Us?


KPMG LLP, the U.S. audit, tax and advisory services firm, operates from 87 offices with more than 23,000 employees and partners throughout the U.S.

KPMG's One Firm culture is changing the way we do things. Together as one team, we will forge the future of the firm through transformation, innovation and acceleration. This will bring greater career opportunities for our professionals and make KPMG a greater organization for the individuals who come behind us. There's a place for your skills, ideas and interests here, along with opportunity to set the pace for years to come. We offer an award-winning work environment, challenging career development programs, global opportunities, and the chance to work with some of the best and brightest people.

 

We all have a purpose at KPMG. Explore yours.

KPMG is a firm with a rich history of doing great work and making a difference. Individually and as a firm, we inspire confidence and empower change in so many different ways. We truly believe that everyone is here for a purpose. Whether our purpose is to serve our clients directly or to help those who do, we all contribute to the bigger picture.

At KPMG, purpose is the difference that has always set us apart. Purpose is the difference between managing military inventory and delivering lifesaving aid to our allies. Between reconciling conflicting financial claims and helping bring hostages home. Between certifying election results and strengthening a young democracy. Between monitoring a cleanup and helping a nation heal after a tragedy. This difference in perspective has enabled us to inspire confidence and empower change for over 100 years, and it will for 100 more. Because at KPMG, purpose is the difference between doing our job and knowing why it matters.

We care about you – the person, the professional, the teammate and friend. We encourage authenticity, honor individual priorities, and respect your choices.

Vision

DIVERSITY DRIVES INNOVATION... AND YOUR CAREER.

An exceptional combination of skills, perspectives and experiences drive innovation—and our success. That’s why we're invested in developing, retaining and advancing diverse, high-performing professionals like you. And why we created programs like Future Diversity Leaders, Managing Career Life Strategies, Leadership Essentials and Pride 15, accelerating your career potential to support you throughout your entire professional journey, so you can hone your skills, expand your experiences, and connect with mentors and sponsors who are committed to helping you succeed.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Compensation is Competitive (Received a 23% raise with 10% Bonus)
    - Working with intelligent, young people for the most part
    - Technology is great and we are moving fast in that direction
    - Great way to advance your career very quickly

    Cons

    - Some engagement managers, most directors, and all partners do not contribute to anything until it is done then they screw it all up. Need to be more involved and treat the KPMG employees better than the client.
    - VERY cuthroat and political. If you get on the wrong persons bad side, then you can kiss any good projects away, at least from him/her.
    - The potential to be in one practice (Consulting), but able to be placed on a long term project that delays your growth in your field and thus hurts your chances of being promoted.

    Advice to Management

    - Better business planning (have not hit our goals consistently).
    - Stress to upper management that they need to be more involved and actually do some damn work.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    Interview lasted for about 15 minutes. The interview was interactive and the questions asked were average. The whole process took months though the HR was on hand to inform one of the next steps in the process
