The internship was an amazing experience that heightened my knowledge in auditing and professional networking.


Uppers

The people that I was able to meet during the internship and learning more about the audit process.


Downers

Being unassigned was what I liked least about the internship experience, however, this only occurred once throughout my 8 weeks with the firm.


Advice to Potential Interns

The internship program is very well structured and I would ask as many question as possible to maximize the learning portion of your internship. The employees are all willing to teach and help you learn so I would take advantage of the opportunity.

Beneficial internship experience leading to full time position in a thriving industry


Uppers

being able to work in a specialized group


Downers

being assigned tasks/duties instead of having a more active responsibliity


Advice to Potential Interns

KPMG has the reputation of a big 4 firm without the stigma's attached to them; that they overwork their young employees. Here, it's all about work/life balance and you still maintain the opportunities you would have with the rest of the big 4

The best place to learn, lead, and launch a successful career in public accounting!


Uppers

The best aspects were the location (Heart of the City), the people (staff thru partner), learning experiences (training/shadowing/project assignments), clientale of the firm, and the networking opportunities. These were all integral parts of my internship that allowed me to have the most prodcutive summer in college thus far. From the moment I started to my final day I was treated as an equal to the firm, and from that came a multitude of excellent benefits both in and outside of the workplace. They really invested in my future and my career by exposing me to a number of different opportunities and giving ME the right to CHOOSE which was best for me. Overall there is not one thing I could have done differently, and I do not regret one bit, making them my choice to intern over the summer.


Downers

The only con that I can think of was that I wished I could have began my internship earlier in the summer, to have allowed me to stay longer.


Advice to Potential Interns

Based on my experience, the best advice would be to come in with a blank slate. Making sure to always carry an open mind to new opportunities, event participation, maintaining a strong work ethic and positive attitude, and voicing your interests or concerns. They will provide every resource they have to you as intern to become successful and all you have to do is show up, stay dedicated, and work hard.


Advice to Management

The only advice to management would be to work on diversity in specific offices. It would be nice to see more minorities at each level of firm employment; staff-partner. This would boost the internship/employment experience even more! I had a great experience as a minority and I know more would make it even better.

Valuable accounting internship experience with job prospect.


Uppers

The training, compensation, full-time offer prospect, getting a feel for the life of an auditor and what the future would entail in the field.


Downers

Because all of the interns are on different engagement teams over the course of 8 weeks, the only negative part of my internship was that it was hard to build relationships with the other interns, aside from the week at training and networking events.


Advice to Potential Interns

Very reputable accounting firm, that devotes a great deal to its interns, hoping that they will afterwards accept a full time position.

Who knew accounting could be so much fun?!


Uppers

The best aspect of the internship was the high performance culture and the helpful/welcoming staff. I also was very appreciative of the fact that I was not treated like an intern (but rather a first-year associate) and was given tasks that helped me to constantly learn something new.


Downers

I can honestly say that there was nothing that I didn't like about the internship - other than the fact that it went by way too fast!


Advice to Potential Interns

I would share with any candidate looking at KPMG as a potential employer that KPMG is clearly a front-runner in the accounting industry. The work culture and environment that the firm holds is truly something special and you will not be able to find it anywhere else. The tasks you complete every day will continually challenge you and you will never have a boring day in the office. Everyone who works at the firm is supportive, helpful, and encouraging, and it is an honor to be a part of that.


Advice to Management

I felt that the compensation, promotion policies, diversity and training were outstanding. As for hours, I can say that my 40-hour work week was always filled with tasks to complete. However, overtime was slightly discouraged (and I absolutely understand why), but there were some days that I felt guilty leaving at the end of the day during the department's busy season when there was work to be completed.

Uppers

The amount of intern events that took plase allowed all of us to really become great friends over the course of the internship.


Downers

There was alot of downtown when I was unassigned.


Advice to Potential Interns

Come to work every day with a positive attitude and ready to learn, and you will do great!


Advice to Management

Make sure to keep doing all of the intern/mentor events, because they were one of my favorite parts of the internship.

Serving clients while bettering yourself


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were the intern events where our whole intern class got to interact together as well as with other professionals in the firm. We had a variety of events from big 4 kickball, intern Olympics, audit case study, spirit of Philadelphia cruise and waterworks dinner event.


Downers

It is hard to find something I liked least but I think because it was summer and it was not as busy there was not always work for me to do.


Advice to Potential Interns

KPMG truly cares about its employees and provides many opportunities for work life balance.


Advice to Management

The can be long during busy season so scheduling people so they have breaks of company year ends of the clients they audit.

More stable hours in the Transactions and Restructuring practice, choice to pick whether to travel or not, and more evenly distributed work assignments for interns

KPMG offers the most realistic internship opportunity as an insight to working full time.


Uppers

My coworkers and the ability to openly communicate in both personal and professional manners


Downers

Although it was infrequent, working through lunch and dinner.


Advice to Potential Interns

All of the Big Four accounting firms offer near identical internship opportunities. Do not pick a company based upon its name. Pick a company after you have had a chance to meet the people you would be working with in the future. KPMG's people are the most professional folks I have met thus far.


Advice to Management

I did not see as many events or opportunities for interns to participate in group activities or team-building exercises within the local offices.


Would You Recommend

Yes
