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.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You'll gain lots of experience, very quickly. Your mileage may vary, but land a good senior / manager and you'll learn so much.

    Cons

    If you land on a larger client, not much wiggle room to move off of it. You're stuck.
    Work / Life balance is non existent.
