Intensive mundane.
Senior Assocciate (Current Employee), Washington, DCMay 24, 2015
Cons: Intensive mundane.
The work is intensively mundane, perhaps it is just my line of work. It is routinely, intensely mundane, capturing and numbing your prefrontal cortex 12 hours a day blinding and deluding you from your personal goals and aspirations.

Dog eat dog
EVS Associate (Former Employee), Dallas, TXMay 19, 2015
Pros: Dinner at work is paid for.
Cons: Hours, management
Simply put, long hours. Long enough to dwindle away the benefits of a good salary. Management are generally out for themselves not for grooming associates. Senior associates are just swamped all the time.You will get great experience. But there'll be tons of you who'll get burned out soon.

Hard working enviornment - always busy
Executive Assistant (Current Employee), Montvale, NJApril 29, 2015
never a dull moment
always learning- especially from all the designed trainings
co-workers are very informative on a daily basis to help guide you through things that you are not able to do and if you are not able to find the answer through them they can help you
Hardest part of the job is - not hard- just repetitive and cleaning up other peoples messes through emails that are written longer than the project that could have been handled

the best part of my job is finishing all of my projects and seeing the end results

LONG HOURS, NO WORK LIFE BALANCE, LOW PAY, GOOD CAREER STARTER
Senior Associate (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAApril 28, 2015
Pros: Name recognition on your resume
Cons: long hours, poor pay, lack of appreciation
Like all public accounting firms, expect to work long hours and have no social life during busy season. Don't believe the BS when they drop terms like "worklife balance". There is no balance. It's basically all work.

That being said, if you know what you're getting yourself into, then its manageable. Big four is solid and safe career starting point. The pay is OK. Definitely doesn't pay you game changing money but you will progress every year and learn a lot. The biggest thing it does for you is having a big name on your resume when you jump to another company. During your short stint at Big Four, you WILL be miserable during busy season (which can be over half the year). Working weekends is normal so expect to push 70-90 hours during busy season. Weight gain is normal becuase thats what happens when you sit on your chair for 14/day, 7 days a week.

If you come in expecting to work hard, then I guess its ok. Otherwise, stay away.

Supportive and challenging place to build skills and relationships
Manager, Advisory Services (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UTApril 24, 2015
Pros: Unmatched skills and knowledge development, exposure to the top people and organizations in the world
Cons: Demanding and sometimes very stressful work environment, "up-or-our" mentality of some people in leadership
KPMG is a great place to work hard and learn from great people. Here, you'll be working with the best of the best and it shows. Sometimes this level of excellence demands a lot of you, but if you are willing to be flexible and work for the balance you want/need, you will be able to find it.

Meh
Senior Associate (Former Employee), Hartford, CTApril 5, 2015
Work tends to be monotonous. Although potential for advancement is present, the process is highly politicized. The firm invests a lot monetarily in employee development, but has not figured out a way to effective training.

Fantastic first job
Program Manager (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 21, 2015
Pros: great culture, flexible schedules
Cons: low advancement for non-core sectors
One rarely appreciates the first post collegiate employment opportunity. KPMGers worked hard, but also had ample time off to relax and pursue their own interests. Advancement was difficult for those not in the core business units, but that's similar with all the big accounting firms.

Pros: salary and benefits
Cons: long hours
Salary and benefits are great but, you have to earn it. You have to work weekends and holidays, regardless of what management says. And they will lay you off without notice.
