KPMG is a Horrible Place to Work (esp. Customer Solutions Practice)

1.0 of 5 stars

December 2017 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

- The company talks a good game about caring for its employees.

Downers

- Pay is below average
- Management within KPMG's Customer Solutions Practice only cares about its own career advancement.

Advice to Candidates

KPMG is a good place if you come in as a partner. If you are not a partner, it is a horrible place to work.

Exit oppurtunities

Downers

Work life balance

Advice to Candidates

You will have no life.

not much different from other big four in terms of culture, though little bit less biased in promotions compared to rest big 4.

Downers

Incessant politicking, cliques, bullying, fraternizing, with management turning blid eye and denying all of it.

Look elsewhere

no work life balance

KPMG: Politics and Travel

1.0 of 5 stars

April 2016 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

As you read in most reviews about KPMG, there is a great pay scale. However, that is a must when it comes to the downers section.

Downers

Travel and mentality that it is impossible to telecommute. Leadership mentality on technology stuck in late 90's/early 2000's.

Advice to Candidates

As many have said before, it is a resume builder. Not a career. If you want to have a wife and kids and maintain a good relationship with them, move on.

No Work / Life Balance

1.0 of 5 stars

April 2016 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

1- Pay is very good
2- Travel Program Points are plentiful because of travel

Downers

1- Zero work/life balance
2- PMO makes consultants spend a quarter of their time updating numerous status reports.
3- Leadership doesn't Lead
4- Does not foster an environment to allow consultants to consult. PMO often hijacks meetings and creates headaches rather than allowing specialists to lead.

Advice to Candidates

If you are a college kid and have no family or friends, then KPMG is for you. There is no work/life balance. KPMG sets consulting back 15 years to the times when you were mandatory traveling every week.
The people that they promote to director level are there because of either politics or acquisitions. Directors and PMO will use politics to hurt you if they don't like you and to further their careers.

The Job You Wish You Had Avoided

1.4 of 5 stars

Entry-level in Financial Services | Washington, DC | 2016 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

The name on my resume

Downers

The lack of respect for personal space, privacy, and family emergencies. I shouldn't have to justify why I need to leave for an emergency. I shouldn't feel pressured to stay at work after working 10 hours in a day.

Advice to Candidates

If I had realized how hostile my work environment is, the lack of mobility, the lack of pay, and the politics where performance matters very little, I would have considered a different firm without question.

Look out for yourself

1.3 of 5 stars

Experienced in Financial Services | New York, NY | 2016 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Vacation time, varied nature of work, flexibility of hours (sometimes)

Downers

The people, and the lack of emphasis on delivering value

Advice to Candidates

Meaningfully consider the nature of the consulting world and your willingness to become a part of it. Ask around and do your research on what it means to work in consulting.
