I was hired as a contractor for a six month project in their procurement department and had high hopes to develop my negotiating and drafting skills. I was told they were desperate for new people and that they "routinely" renew contractor assignments. However, after only a month, the director terminated my contract without warning or explanation. Although extremely disappointed, I know I can take what I learned there about negotiating software contacts and take it to the next level and make more $$$. It is truly their loss.
Great work/like balance. Interesting work. Nice people.
Don't expect to get hired as a permanent employee if hired first as a contractor, there's a long line ahead of you.

This was a contract position with a great company. When I was laid off they were getting a new building and did not have any placement. They rarely hire temps and this is one job I could have stayed with

Director, Deal Advisory (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – July 6, 2017
KPMG is a decent place to build your career either through traditional auditing route or advisory. I have progressed fairly quickly through deal advisory from manager to lead director on deals in approximately 3 years.
The Company says it strives for work life balance however I haven't seen it in my practice. For instance it is not uncommon to move vacation time as it fits business needs.

The amount of work was intense but it also taught you how to manage your time and how to prioritize different tasks. My fellow coworkers were supportive and very helpful which made the overall experience wonderful.
