Contract
Accounting Coordinator Assistant (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 12, 2017
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

Want to get burned out? Audit for Big 4.
Audit Associate (Former Employee) –  Denver, COJuly 11, 2017
Title says it all. 100 weeks during busy season, 60 hour weeks during the summer. Co-workers are dull and feed the culture of just working hours to charge the client.

Good place to build career
Director, Deal Advisory (Current Employee) –  Detroit, MIJuly 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.
Pros
career progression
Cons
work life balance

KPMG US good place to work , KMPG Global is not
Associate (Former Employee) –  Montvale, NJJune 29, 2017
KPMG US is a great place to work at. There is room to grow and it is encouraged.

KPMG Global on the other hand is not as good, there is no room for growth and management does not follow the standards as the US model.
Pros
KPMG US great place to work, opportunities, training, work life balance is top notch
Cons
KPMG Global is poorly managed, employees are overworked and underpaid. Very little job growth and extremely high turnover rate.

Good company to work for, but after 6 years I decided public accounting was no longer for me. Too much travel, overtime, stressful deadlines. Good comradery with fellow employees.

Company doesn't have enough opportunities for Oracle and Fusion Consulting
Manager - Enterprise Solutions (Former Employee) –  Washington StateJune 27, 2017
The company is mainly involved with large / global companies. Typical projects are management consulting, audit or advisory. Oracle implementation work is minimum.
Management hierarchy is too strong and bullying on the job is very common. Experienced or long term employees of the company are too bossy and as well play politics. New comers with higher experience don't get opportunity to excel.

It was an excellent place to gain good experience
Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 23, 2017
KPMG was a challenging place to work but a great place in terms of opportunities for advancement and for getting marketable work experience that will easily qualify a person for high level accounting and tax jobs elsewhere including but not limited to at another accounting firms, at fortune companies, within government, etc. They also provide ideal an experience for a person eventually wishing to start one's own firm.
Pros
Great work experience and opportunities for pay increases and advancement.
Cons
Not an easy place to work for those looking for an easy, stress free 9 to 5 job.
