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.




KPMG invests in your success.

Our commitment to your career development helps to set us apart as an employer. We want to enhance your potential, both for yourself and as a contributor to our firm.

WE VALUE YOUR INDIVIDUALITY.

We care about you – the person, the professional, the teammate and friend. We encourage authenticity, honor individual priorities, and respect your choices. KPMG's benefits and rewards, diversity networks, and the recognition we've received demonstrate the value we place on the contributions of everyone who works here.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KPMG (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    2 back to back 30 minute interviews, one with a manager and one with a partner. It was fairly easy as far as Big 4 interviews go. They really just want someone who can hold a conversation. It was pretty relaxed
