Not an internship, but a season as a true KPMG Employee. Great people, professional development, and client exposure.


Uppers

Challenging work assigment Great Team ( like a family) Professional mentors at high levels ( partner/director met with me consistently) Training from national traning and senior associates


Downers

Would have liked more direct client interaction , but this is a budget concern


Advice to Potential Interns

KPMG will give your more opporutunities than you can imagine. Remain positive, ask for feedback, and do all you can to learn more each day. Build strong relationships with your assigned mentors, and do not be afraid to voice your concerns. Be a student not only of KPMG, but also a student of the client and their business.


Advice to Management

Focus on increasing diversity and giving summer interns opportunities to do more volunteer work for the firm. Provide more training on client research.

Challenging. Engaging. Invested in You.


Uppers

The fact that the firm is 100% invested in you and has the full intent to bring you on full time if you put in the work.


Downers

The work is not always easy and there is an expectation you are a high performer. This was by no means a bad thing and I loved being challenged. But you definitely are expected to work hard.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you want a full time job with a first class firm who has great people then go with KPMG.


Advice to Management

Continue to spend every day engaging interns and immersing them into the job and showing what life is like as a first ear employee. It made all the difference to me having great experience.

Real life work experience in a team environment


Uppers

The people of the company. I loved all the people I worked with and how the company worked to make the long hours of busy season not as dull through certain company wide perks. Also they did a great job of having the interns get to know each other and help out in the community through our community service week.


Downers

That I didn't get to work with any other interns on my clients. It would have been nice to have people that were in the same position as me to work with.


Advice to Potential Interns

Auditors work long hours so make sure you pick the company with the people you feel most comfortable around. If you don't mesh with your teams, the work could get monotonous.


Advice to Management

I feel as though compensation around the board at the big 4 accounting firms should be higher. Most employees have a masters degree and extra schooling so it seems like compensation should be adjusted upwards to compensate for the extra schooling.

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

A great learning experience.


Uppers

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.


Downers

It is deadline intensive so it can be high stress.

In order to work at KPMG you must be willing to work hard, but everyone is there to support you.
