Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I was very impressed with the on-the-job mentoring that I received from my supervisors. I was given a wide variety of tasks to complete, but I always felt comfortable asking questions and I was never given too much to handle at once.

Downers

There were certain times that I felt that I could have been contributing more, but the work that was given to me did have limitations. I especially noticed that even though my team would often have to work late hours, I was always sent home in order to be on pace for no more than 40 hours of work per week.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you should choose to select this internship, you will be given a chance to get comfortable in the accounting profession as you build experience with a variety of tasks. The assignments are often basic, but will increase as you prove your competency. The pay is fair, but the hours are limited to 40 per week in most cases so do not expect to be paid any extra for overtime. Some local travel outside of the downtown area may be required.

Advice to Management

I would have appreciated the chance to contribute further to my team by working overtime alongside them when they often had to work late, however I was sent home to keep pace with a 40 hour work week.

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.

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
