Avis généraux sur l'entreprise KPMG (Boston, MA)
Great place to start a career / not so much if you are mid-career and want a life
You get on the right project, you can learn a lot and the process of fostering a client relationship can be satisfying. Get on the wrong project and it could be job-ending. Very political and cut throat. Long days and weekend work when you are managing multiple projects. I think the manager role in the company is a very tough position to fulfill when attached to multiple accounts.
Consulting is not for everyone. These types of consulting companies attract A-players; smart, successful, and ambitious types, who are going to extend themselves and readily make those sacrifices to advance their careers. If you are rooted in family life, and want a work life balance, this may be a challenging environment for you.
Another drawback if you are an experienced hire, is you are constantly tasked to mentor and carry Associates and Senior Associates, since in many instances they do not have the level of skills to perform their roles satisfactorily, but still get billed-out as "experts".
Points positifsGreat pay and benefits
Points négatifsVery political
Great place to start out. Experienced hires beware
I think KPMG seems to have a lot of smart young people and a lot of other people who love their titles and think that they deserve respect based solely on the length of time they've been there and the fact that they leeched onto someone along the way and got promoted above where they deserve. They bill you out for the max possible rate but want to give you the least amount of paid training possible. Other than the compensation there isn't a single thing I could recommend about working here.
Points positifsGreat place to start out fresh from school
Points négatifsTerrible and top heavy management
Large company, multi-dimensional workforce
There is no typical day at KPMG. Employees are offered a range of assignments that diversifies their experience and gives skills in new areas. Travel is extensive in the consulting side of the business but is offset by the opportunity to work with Fortune 500 clients. Highly competitive work environment but it is also collaborative.
Points positifsSummer Friday jumpstarts, leaving the office at 3 pm
Points négatifsWork-life balance
Great people great environment
Great place to work. The people make the job as bearable as possible. The hours can be daunting, and the work life balance can be tough, but that is the nature of public accounting. The people I worked with at KPMG made the working environment as fun as possible and were very helpful and accommodating within reason. Overall I had a great experience with KPMG
Points positifspeople, benefits
Points négatifslong hours, work/life balance
A big contributing factor of what makes work less stressful, enjoyable, and not dreading to go to is the people you with with. At KPMG, all of the staff are great people to work with, helpful, and really aim to help you succeed. I never feel out of place when I need to speak with management, or any superior to me because they are all approachable and willing to help. Great culture to work for overall.
Professional Services Company
Great brand. Fourth among the Big 4. Great talent base.
KPMG needs to focus on establishing a clear Vision, Mission and Strategy. Pockets of these topics exist throughout the company. However, there is no central driving force or outcome.
Points négatifsAbility to define clear vision and corresponding strategy

I truly enjoy my position at KPMG. The people, partners and leadership are all amazing, caring people. Our mission for inclusion and diversity is real, and not just meaningless words from the top.
Points positifsAmazing culture, great people, work/life balance
Points négatifsVery little recognition, compensation is low
Good place to start accounting experience
It was a good place to start accounting work experience since public accounting experience is always a plus when you work in the private sector. Although I did not enjoy driving to different work location (client site) every two weeks, the experience I gained was very valuable.
