Service Associate : avis sur KPMG
Bright People, ethical company, miserable experience
KPMG is such a large company that it is hard to generalize it, but I went in there as a consultant from my industry and I was in for a rude awakening. They preach all sort of things like "Charge the hours that you work" etc but then you will always be indirectly told to eat hours. In my department, finding work that was a good learning experience and not mind numbing was hard to come by. Little consideration was given to skills, talent, and background when given project assignments.
I worked on a local client my entire time at the company, so didn't really feel like I worked in consulting. My time there was great. However, at the time KPMG one had one client for the type of work I was focused on, ITSM. Since I left the company has aggressively beefed up this area of concentration. And is now becoming known in the industry for this work. Given that they have recruited the best from the other consulting firms, they are sure to do well.
Hard work during busy season
You will work very hard during busy season, which is hard if you have a family. But the people are great. You learn a lot and the client exposure is fantastic. Benefits and time off are excellent. If you can stick this out, it's a good career.
Points positifsGenerous time off...if you can find the time to use it
Points négatifsBusy season is arduous
Fast paced learning and competitive environment
KPMG is a great place to work with ample flexibility and great teams. The expectations are also set very high, hence it really pushes you to pass your limits and improve your work product. The company also has some great people who are willing to help and teach you.
The overall experience in KPMG Global Services was satisfying and inspiring.

It is a good starting point for people right out of college. Nice exposure to a huge company. It has a good training program for interns/ entry level employees. In general, nice people/ culture.

Productive and learning work place
I feel proud to be a part of the KPMG. I love company very much. In my country, KPMG is a one of the leading auditing and consultancy firm. It's a very good place for accounting career.
Great people, not very accommodating company
A typical day of work for the first 6 months entailed going to all the team members to beg for work because they were all too busy to let the new guy help.
Stressful and Long hours
Typical day is different, stressful culture and cutthroat . Learned alot on the job, but not career I want to pursue in the future. Great learning opportunity however.
KPMG has great culture and great people. The work itself was challenging which made it fun. However, the work/life balance was not great and was definitely the worst part of the job.
