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

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.

The Best Experience

5.0 of 5 stars

Oklahoma City, OK | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I enjoyed being able to see what you learned in your accounting classes come to life. It reinforced that the money I am spending is not just a waste. Also, all of the little perks were nice like they pay for your travel and meals as long as it is far enough out for example.

Downers

You work long hours and that is not exactly ideal but you get paid extremely well for it and you get used to it.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you do not like to work then you should not do this internship. You will work long hours throughout the week but I never had to work a weekend. That varies between offices of course with working on weekends; however, you will get compensated quite nicely for the overtime hours.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Fun and a great leaning experience

Taking Accounting to a Whole New Level by Learning from the Best

5.0 of 5 stars

Honolulu, HI | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I liked getting to work on different entities. One week I would be working on a partnership and the next week I would be working on a corporation. Getting hands-on experience through actually preparing work papers and generating the returns was great. What this internship great was definitely the people that I worked with. They were always willing to help and were very good teachers.

Downers

There is actually nothing that I didn't like. Everything was challenging, and sometimes it was very frustrating, but it's all part of the learning process.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you are looking for a tax internship, KPMG is a great employer. You will get to experience preparing returns for various entities from start to finish. The people that you will be working with are very intelligent and always helpful. The work and learning the programs will be a challenge, but it is the people who make you want to learn and not give up.

Advice to Management

I think KPMG can improve on its process leading up to the actual training. I found it quite difficult to sign up for training because of the preferred airlines and price range. I don't like the fact that we have to email someone when we can't find a flight to training within a certain price range. I didn't find it efficient. I also didn't like that our confirmation email said we should be receiving certain documents two weeks before our training date, but it didn't get sent out until the week of. I wish we would know who are roommate is before we fly up to training. It may be nice to get to know the person a little before.

Harrisburg, PA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

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.

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

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.

The best aspects were the environment and how helpful everyone was. I never felt like I was burdening anyone with my questions and everyone was friendly.
