Overall rating is okay while work life balance is bad. Will give you experience if you want to advance in your career in accounting. Big Four is always good choice.

Long hours, expectation to bill hours.

Learned a lot, but most employees are there to only get the experience, then move on to another less stressful place to work. Managers were accessible and knowledgeable.


People to learn from.

Great people, terrible early pay.

You work with great people but it is a sweat shop. Turnover is high because you are expected to work 70-80 hours weekly busy season always extended as Wells


The people and exit opportunities


Low starting pay until you are a couple years in, Almost near minimum wage with the amount of hours worked.

Great company

I learned a lot working at KPMG. It's a great place to start entry level. A lot of great perks such as travel opportunities and a nice starting salary. There is not really any work life balance if that is important to you.

Great learning opportunities, no work/life balance

Pros:- Almost guaranteed career track/promotion schedule-Firm resources-Can be surrounded by really smart peopleCons:- Busy season hours (60-90) for 6+ months of the year-Underpaid-Typically underappreciated

Job seekers rely on your experience.

Every work experience is unique. Let people know your thoughts on previous employers.

Challenging work environment with lots to learn

Working with top talent from college could be a competitive but learning experience Staffs are expected to work overtime and make available late nights and weekends However, you are able to work on some of the largest client in public accounting

Was very good experience. Minimal benefits other than that.

Was very good experience but other than that there were minimal benefits. Required to work long hours and for minimal pay as a new hire. Work load never seems to relent.

Stay away.

Bad place to be. Generally, people are overwork. Also, you are just as good as your last deliverables. Bad place to be for any and all minorities who wants to move up to be a partner.

Good place to start a career, very demanding but a lot to learn in a short time

KPMG was a great place to start an accounting career out of college. The work was demanding but the firm had a lot of activities to keep things fun. You’ll learn a lot and meet a lot of great contacts to help you later in your career.


Experience, training, atmosphere

Lots of opportunities to learn and grow

You will learn a lot here and there is opportunities to grow. However, the work environment is very fast paced and stressful at times with heavy work loads. Communication can improve. Expected to work weekends and long nights during busy seasons

Not worthy enough for a prolonged Career

Was there for about 1.5 years. Did not feel like the organization cared for its employees. No culture at all. Pathetic on boarding experience. Joined another Big 4

Good company to start

There’s a lot of learning opportunities for sure, but can be very stressful depending on your positions. There’s a minimum flexibility guaranteed regarding locations and schedules.

Good place to learn and build a career

There are many opportunities to learn and grow at KPMG. Be prepared to work hard and long hours. Work/life balance is a struggle. Very good compensation and benefits.

Good place to start career

As a campus intern, you get a lot of guidance and support from mentors. However, there is little room for negotiation or adjustment once you are in and moving around to different service lines seems to be require jumping through many hoops because it is such a big organization.

Solid stable workplace with set promotion structure

KPMG is a good place to work where you are surrounded by smart people. You will learn a lot and get exposure to big clients. Sometimes on bigger engagements you may get lost though as you may only be on 1 workstream and not see the bigger picture of the entire engagement


Good pay, good environment, job security


Long hours, little say on projects

Challenging, busy but fulfilling work experience

Busy work days. Tons of meetings. Unfortunately, there is are enough resources in the market, but Snr Mgmt is committed to the success of projects. In the time I have been here, KPMG has allowed us to work from home, provided us with a one time stipend to cover home office expenditures. Havent had a boring day yet... nor a slow day.The pros outweighs the cons!


Support of mgmt; money is good; company shutdown periods, summer early start Fridays


low increases in salary; year end lost of untaken PTOs
