Avis généraux sur l'entreprise KPMG (Salt Lake City, UT)
Good name and good experience at a cost
KPMG will provide you with a solid name for your resume, great exposure, and even better experience. However, this is offset by the overwhelming number of hours you need to work and the stress caused by short deadlines. Most places outside of the Big 4 firms will compensate you for this, but not KPMG and not other Big 4. You will be paid well below your peers outside of public accounting. The only thing that makes the day managable is that KPMG maintain a strong culture amongst staff and managers. Essentially, you will enjoy who you work with 15 hours a day.
Supportive and challenging place to build skills and relationships
KPMG is a great place to work hard and learn from great people. Here, you'll be working with the best of the best and it shows. Sometimes this level of excellence demands a lot of you, but if you are willing to be flexible and work for the balance you want/need, you will be able to find it.
Points positifsUnmatched skills and knowledge development, exposure to the top people and organizations in the world
Points négatifsDemanding and sometimes very stressful work environment, "up-or-our" mentality of some people in leadership
Good place to gain experience and exposures
Red tape and politics high, but expected of a big firm. Need to get rapidly a "protector" or manager with who you'll be working in order to get all billable hours required by the firm. Otherwise advancement and opportunities will dry quickly.
Points positifsGet a great experience and exposure with various clients.
Points négatifsWork extensive hours (unpaid) which brings your hourly salary for less than a basic job at Walmart.
Time and Commitment
I enjoy auditing. I enjoy KPMG. I think my job is a huge stepping stone for my career and I honestly learn so much. My only real complaint is that more often than not, I feel like I am just a warm body. They preach family/work life balance, but I've worked more 65+ hour weeks than not. I've also traveled to other offices in other states more times than I've actually been in my home office.
Points positifsGreat career builders
Points négatifsPoor work/family life balance.
Trust the firm
KPMG has a rich history and a system that is comprised of carefully placed values that will develop employees as a professional. Many people can't stand the pressure. They blame the pressure on people, work, and system. Nevertheless, if you learn to work with the pressure and allocate those pressures into personal development of character, you will find yourself appreciated in the work place.
Great work environment
As an intern my typical day involved helping the team senior with various tasks and test work. It is a fast paced environment, which I really enjoyed because I learn quickly and like to work fast.
Points positifsVarious learning opportunties
Points négatifsLong days
Get in and get out!
You're just another number that they need 80 hours a week from. Management says they care but actions are disjointed from their words. Overworked and burnt out people make long hours longer. One plus is I did learn a lot. Build your resume and get out.
Points positifsResume Builder
not the best culture
I would recommend the company to anyone looking for audit or tax experience, however, the culture of the company is less than uplifting. It is a public accounting firm. everyone keeps their head down.
Very professional job environment. Supportive management. Excellent training for employees. Challenging assignments. Great first career out of college.
Points négatifsJob Security
fun and productive place
amazing and nice place to work.
has supportive managers and employees that all work as a team to provide the client with the best service. They also hire from within.
