KPMG Summer Internship

5.0 of 5 stars

Short Hills, NJ | July 2016 | CURRENT INTERN

Uppers

Doing real client work, seeing and doing what accountants do daily.
The people at KPMG are really nice, friendly and VERY helpful. working on many different engagements.

Downers

Having to work long hours. not having a set schedule, and not knowing what you are going to be doing next.

Comments

Tax is a great staring point, although most people think they must begin with audit. KPMG gives you all the tools you need to do the job the best way possible. you will come out of the internship knowing quite a lot, and you will get a very clear picture of what your future will look like.

Would You Recommend

Yes

An informative and exciting foray into the world of accounting.

4.8 of 5 stars

Harrisburg, PA | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The strong sense of community within the department has been fantastic. This is also not a "coffee-getting" internship, as I'm doing the exact same work that regular, ground-level associates do here as well. I also got to travel to Orlando (all expenses paid) for a week of training along with the other interns all around the nation.

Downers

There was a bit more down-time than I expected. On occasion, I would have to ask multiple supervisors to have them come up with work for me to help with.

Advice to Potential Interns

You will have a lot of new terminology and software applications thrown at you within the first two weeks of the internship. While corporate-level accounting/ auditing may sound intimidating at first, keep making sure to ask questions and being proactive in this way makes things manageable and smoother.

Advice to Management

I hate to say it, but I genuinely cannot think of any real improvements on this internship. This has been an amazing experience through and through.

Sample Interview Questions

"Will you have the required 150-credit hours needed to sit for the Pennsylvania CPA exam when you graduate?"

"Have you taken any accounting courses with auditing and tax as a focus?"

Would You Recommend

Yes

Chicago, IL | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Getting to know the other interns and full time staff was one of the best aspects of the internships.

Downers

I would have enjoyed a longer internship! Maybe 10 weeks instead of 8 weeks.

Advice to Potential Interns

Ask questions and be willing to go outside of your comfort zone.

Busy Season Interning

4.8 of 5 stars

Fort Lauderdale, FL | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The people I worked with were the best part. Even though it was busy season, I enjoyed working the long hours because of my co-workers and I learned so much that I felt it was such a beneficial experience.

Downers

The hours were incredibly long but that is because it was busy season. The firm compensates by giving lots of vacation time so I am willing to put in extra work when it is busy season because I enjoy the work and the people.

Advice to Potential Interns

I think KPMG has an amazing culture and they are concerned with you as an individual, which is important when people are thinking of working in a large company.

Advice to Management

Concentrate a bit more on work life balance.

Sample Interview Questions

Philadelphia, PA | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The firm's culture was the best aspect of the internship.

Downers

I wish that I had more work at times.

Advice to Potential Interns

I've interned at 3 different companies, but my experience at KPMG has been the best by far. I think KPMG is unique because of the culture and people. KPMG puts their employees first, which is unlike the other big companies. Everyone wants to help each other grow as an individual. Overall, there are several reputable companies to work for like KPMG; however, you will only enjoy your job if the company has a good culture and people so consider KPMG.

Advice to Management

Right now, most of our training consist of training videos. KPMG has one of the best training programs, but I feel that they could improve training even further by creating more job specific videos along with in person trainings.

Sample Interview Questions

Describe a time that you had a conflict with a co-worker. How did you handle it?

Columbus, OH | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The people I work with are all kind, intelligent, and fun people. The people I work under respect me and value my opinion, and the other interns and I all get along so well!

Downers

Sitting down most of the day.

Advice to Potential Interns

Don't be afraid to ask questions. That is how you learn. No one expects you to know everything... or anything really at that matter. IT is difficult and a lot of it isn't taught in classes at school. Everyone is there to help you. Use your resources.

Advice to Management

Maybe set aside some time the first few days the interns start to on-board them into the phase of the audit for the client. I felt as if no one was erally ready for me to begin when I did.

Sample Interview Questions

Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?
