    Positive Outlook

    I worked at KPMG full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Good culture and lots of opportunities

    Cons

    Accountability can be an issue and cause problems. Not a great way to give feed back on management because it is pretty clear who makes the reviews.

    I have been working at KPMG full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    People are great, helpful, friendly and love to teach each other.

    Cons

    Little to no life during busy season, you will only go home to sleep. Pay isn’t great compared to the other big 4. Upper management is pretty out of touch. In terms of how long things take even though they don’t know how the technology works.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so numbers driven and focus on your people. If the minimum hours are set to 60 and someone has 58, we don’t need to give them 10 more. Train new hires on both Kpmg and legacy RK tools so they actually can move back and forth between engagements.

    I have been working at KPMG full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Smart people, good benefits, competitive salary

    Cons

    With KPMG being on the Forbes list for best places to work, makes me question the entire list. People show up to play a political game, not to work. Results come 3rd to favoritism and politics. Have values and integrity? This isn’t the place for you. The unethical practices are scary. The length of stay is enough for a promotion. Knowledge is nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop doing what you’re doing, just start over.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Santa Clara, CA

    I worked at KPMG full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Excellent learning experience, continuous exposure to latest standards, and variety of industry sectors and focus areas. Great career prospects at KPMG or outside after becoming manager (that is if you paid attention, know your stuff and weren't just coasting or sleeping through engagements and trainings).

    Cons

    If you're a senior rank female with children, be prepared to deal with ultra senior male executives without children. These executives do not understand the last thing about work and life balance and run their own lives and departments accordingly. It takes all kinds of people to make the world go round I guess- but perhaps individuals like this have too narrow of a life experience to run entire offices. Insane hours...

    Advice to Management

    Recommend not placing single males (or females) without children in positions of power for the entire local office (e.g. head of office). It's OK to have these crazy career oriented characters run large engagements or other revenue efforts, but being in charge of large offices is problematic for employee retention and for developing life friendly policies across the office. Please ensure that there is someone in charge...
