Tax Intern - State and Local Taxes (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 29, 2017
I don't think this is appropriate. Why would Indeed require this information. This company is a great place to work for. But this site does not have the right to get information this way.

Great place to start your consulting career
Manager (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXOctober 27, 2017
KPMG provided me with the opportunity to grow into a true management consultant. I was given chances to lead large teams and grow junior talent. I would recommend KPMG to anyone looking to build a solid consulting foundation.

Great if you're willing to pack a suitcase
PMO Consultant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 21, 2017
If you're ok with traveling all the time, great place to work. Good support from management and room for growth. Just remember to clear your saturday to finish laundry, fix the leaky faucet and see the family. Other 6 days you're packing a bag.

Can be anything.
Management Consulting Manager (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAOctober 20, 2017
Like most large companies one's experiences at KPMG largely depends on their immediate team and/or management. It also depends on the industry/sector and nature of clients you serve.
Whether you're in Advisory, Tax or Audit also makes a world of difference.

Senior Manager - FEDERAL TAX (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, TXOctober 17, 2017
As you move up the ranks, the cut throat behavior and never ending administrative duties along with bland work never seem to end. Need to make sure you are in a specialty group to keep intellectually sharp.

National Human Resources Director (Former Employee) –  Montvale, NJOctober 15, 2017
it was a face paced environment, you needed to be very knowledgeable of your role and responsibilities. You were expected to bring your A game to the job each day and work as many hours as you needed to get the job done, which was always good.
