Other Employee Reviews for KPMG

  1. "Typical of any "Big Four" Firm"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good place to work for the most part; salary very competitive; flexibility to work from home when possible; exposure to many companies in many a variety of industries; opportunity to meet and work with good people and develop lasting relationships.

    Cons

    A few too many "Type A's"; salaries a little too over the top for new college hires, setting them off on expecting to make a lot more with little experience when they're "stolen" from the Big Four; work/life balance is tough depending on luck of draw (what client you get assigned to and where they are located); pressure, especially at higher levels, to identify new business opportunities (bring in more business); not much room for growth (no sub-levels of positions) - staff, senior, manager.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate more on work/life balance and give more back to the ones doing the work (compared to the amount of money partner's take in); revamp performance review process (make it more realistic because not every one walks on water).

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - personal development opportunities were encouraged
    - opportunity to volunteer as apart of KPMG
    - nice new building @ BAC, central location downtown
    - lots of sunlight on office floors

    Cons

    - very conservative work environment - hierarchy was very evident
    - corp culture to work later in order to complete a task
    - goal setting done by everyone is great, but process to do so makes it so cumbersome that it takes alot of the satisfaction out of it

    Advice to Management

    For marketing and other internal shared services, offer a more clear career path so people know what the future could hold for them @ KPMG (similiar to the career path communicated to those in client facing side)
