A good place if you know how to play their game

It’s all politics at the end of the day. You don’t even have to be that good at your job. If people (leadership) like you, you will be given the right opportunities to rise to the top.

Navigating the Professional Landscape: A Comprehensive Review of My KPMG Work Experience

G has been an enriching and dynamic experience, characterized by a commitment to excellence and a collaborative atmosphere. From day one, I found myself immersed in a culture that values innovation, integrity, and professional growth. The firm's emphasis on teamwork fosters a supportive environment where diverse perspectives are not only welcomed but celebrated.

Good place

It’s fine a place to work. You will get exposed to a lot of different tax matters. The culture within the company is also great. People around you are nice as well.

Very supportive leaders

The work was challenging, I learned a lot and was supported my entire time there. They were flexible when I needed it. Leadership made a huge effort trying to make the group better every year.

Collaborative working environment

The company culture is very positive. The people are what make this firm worth working at. The emphasis on utilization can be stressful and having to ensure your schedule is filled to meet the firm requirements. When there is a drop in utilization it is your responsibility to ensure you make up the time.

Not good enough

Cut throat culture"Inclusive" on paper only and for photosThere is no way you can advance unless you are friends with leadershipIt is not about the skills you have. It's who you know.And don't bother to apply for a job. The person has already been pre-selected. "interview" is just a formality. Posting a job is only for formality.They work you to death. 60-80hours/week is normal. And they cut you away from one day to another. KPMG demands loyalty but you get none from them.


Remote work


Office politics, cut throat culture, "Inclusive" on paper only, no advancement, no future

Relaxed, lots of opportunities to learn

The job was good but could have involved more active engagement with supervisor and team members. They invest a lot in your learning, such as becoming good at US tariff law.

A typical day was to analyze information and create a report.Long hours were the hardest for me. Great Management. Great work culture. Needs more support for new hires.I leaned nothing.The most enjoyable part was meeting with the team.It's a great company for college students to start with. Any Big 4 experience will enhance your resume and open more opportunities in the future. It's better if you pass CPA exam and get your CPA licence first.


Culture is great

4 Stars

KPMG is a great company with fantastic benefits. Great Benefits. Support from internal teams is great though. At times, information from leadership was lacking. Also, you are required to do extra work/assignments outside of project work that can feel tedious.

Great place to learn!

Working at KPMG has been a rewarding experience for me. I have learned a lot from the talented and diverse team of professionals who are always ready to help and support each other. KPMG offers a variety of opportunities for career growth and development, as well as flexible work arrangements and competitive benefits. The culture at KPMG is collaborative, inclusive, and respectful, and I feel valued and appreciated for my contributions. KPMG is also committed to making a positive impact on society and the environment through its corporate responsibility initiatives and sustainability practices. I am proud to be part of KPMG and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a challenging and fulfilling career in the professional services industry.

Great growth & training opportunities with great responsibilities

It is a great growth opportunity to work on many different engagements in a similar industry in a fast paced work. However, it may feel very competitive and a little stressful during busy seasons due to minimum long hours.

Great way to gain experience, Hard work

You are given many opportunities to lead and take control of projects, talk directly with clients, and gain a wide knowledge of tax concepts which wouldn't be available in most other direct from college hire positions. However, you will have to work long hours, have high expectations placed upon you, and despite the higher than industry-average salaries compared to years of experience, your per hour wages will not be very high because of the culture of being "paid-in-experience".

The leadership is lost

The smaller teams have the ability to create their own culture. However, KPMG leadership is largely a bit lost at how to motivate and steer a psychologically safe work environment. I would not recommend working here - I think there are other places with a better culture and greater competency levels.

Productive and fun workplace

I’ve learned a lot here and it’s a good resume builder. Great people, great culture, compensation is ok. Lots of opportunities to learn in many different ways about different industries, downtown office views are amazing.

Good place to work in terms of exposure. Good work culture and management. However hours can be long in peak seasons and requires working during the weekend.

Underpaid compared to competition

Great for fast-paced learning environment but not for physical or mental well-being. Luck plays a factor in how long you end up staying. Each engagement/team has their own respective culture and expectations.

Mean Girls

The organization has the best intentions for culture but unfortunately the talent acquisition side of the business can be somewhat toxic and has its cliques.

Great Place to work

Good Culture, and a great place to work and learn overall. Provides new opportunities to grow career. Good work life balance too which makes it a nice place to work.

Great people, too much red tape

Great people to work with, but too much red tape to get anything approved. There is a lot of politics in upper management and lately, a lack of direction.
