Sales Tax Associate (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJune 9, 2017
Too much favoritism, it is not what you know it is who you know. You get pass up for positions if you're not in the click. Can be a great company if management change their mentality.

Large firm with great benefits, great people, and big corporate culture.
Associate - Deal Advisory (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 8, 2017
The best parts of the job are the skills you develop and the connections that you make. I have thoroughly improved my excel skills, understanding of accounting concepts, and verbal / written communication skills. At times, the hours are long and the work is frustrating. This is just the nature of a big 4 accounting firm.

Okay place to work
Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 6, 2017
You get tons of client facing opportunities and develop your communications and analytical skills. However, lack of support from management and leadership makes you feel like you are just there to make profit so they get fat wallet year end.

Competitive workplace
Manager - Marketing and Accounts (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 6, 2017
Competition is often healthy and encouraged at work, of course. People who compete in a healthy way see it as a route to developing their skills, reaching shared goals, staying motivated and thriving on the job.Every department is different but some really care about work life balance and focusing on the individuals and their professional and personal needs.

Senior Associate, Risk Consulting (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJune 4, 2017
if you're willing to put up with the hours, travel, super stressful environment of a top-notch world reknown company, then work at KPMG and any other Big 4. It's worth it! The things you learn and the people you meet will build you up (whether you recognize it or not).

Audit Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 25, 2017
KPMG is a great company to work for - with a large network of people to learn from and grow from. Entering accounting, if this is what you want to do, it is a great place to start.

Long Hours and high turnover
Tax Associate - Alternative Investments (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 24, 2017
During busy season you can clock easily over 100+h per week. A lot of young people right out of college so the culture is young but at the same time, with inexperienced staff there is lower productivity.
