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.

    I worked at KPMG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    KPMG has competitive benefits, salary rates, and work/life balance. Additionally, I felt like I was treated fairly by managers during the year end review process and always felt as if I was putting out high-quality, sufficiently reviewed work.

    They place an emphasis on societal contribution and offer great training opportunities. In the IT Audit (Risk Assurance) field, they encourage and will pay for personnel to get relevant certifications. Finally, there is a relatively transparent path through the organization, especially from the Associate to Director level.

    Cons

    Workload can be demanding at times, also as you progress through your career (specifically as experienced associate or senior associate) you will end up managing new college hires which can present problems in some scenarios.

    Application

    Interview

    The first recruiter initially contacted me within 3-4 days after applying and set up a phone interview. Interview went well, disorganized communication amongst recruiters regarding next steps. The job was transferred to a different recruiter and despite follow up with disorganized with answers and next steps.
