Avis généraux sur l'entreprise KPMG (Phoenix, AZ)
Great place to start a career
I worked in the Phoenix office -- the partner (Lisa Daniels) and other management team were superb. I was on the IT/Advisory side, so I worked fewer hours than the traditional financial auditors. I felt like work/life balance was pretty good for working in public accounting. Value system was good, comp was fair, and the overall team was excellent. The experience in public accounting is entirely dependent on those you work with - management and peers. Although the "partner track" wasn't for me, it was a great place to jump start my career.
Points positifsTeam/people, comp, work/life
Caring co-workers and a happy environment
The people I worked with at KPMG were encouraging, always ready to teach something new and express joy in your accomplishments. They put family first, allowing for time off and caring words when a family crisis came up, twice during the time I was there. By the time my temporary assignment ended, they all expressed a sincere desire to have me work there permanently, if only the corporate office had let them bring someone new on.
Points positifsFree food, good people, clean, nice work environment
Points négatifsAssignment was temporary
Fantastic first job
One rarely appreciates the first post collegiate employment opportunity. KPMGers worked hard, but also had ample time off to relax and pursue their own interests. Advancement was difficult for those not in the core business units, but that's similar with all the big accounting firms.
Points positifsgreat culture, flexible schedules
Points négatifslow advancement for non-core sectors
Overworked and Underpaid
The title sums up how I feel about my time at KPMG. You will learn a lot due to the long hours and exposure to diverse clients. However, you will consistently feel underappreciated due to the business model. This is especially eye-opening once you move on to your next job/career.
Great place to begin your career in public accounting
KPMG is a great public accounting firm with a wonderful corporate culture. I am happy to have started my career at KPMG and feel that the training and client work has helped me tremendously in my professional development.

Classic Big 4
Working hard from associate to senior to manager. There is a classic path to partner or you can hop out like so many do after a few years. Big clients, large engagements. Fast paced. Low pay for the hours.
Points positifsResume builder
Points négatifsHours and pay
Managers were always helpful. Very friendly employees. Healthy fast paced work. There was a lot of sitting but the time flew by. Catered lunches during tax season. Always felt appreciated.
