KPMG is a great place to work and I truly enjoyed working here.The workplace is encouraging and provides ample learning opportunities for growth. Working in KPMG gives you the opportunity to collaborate with different companies and get in touch with people who hold high levels of company management. The work is challenging and provides value addition to one's resume, KPMG being one of the Big four audit firms

Big 4 accounting firm
Director (Former Employee) –  London17 December 2017
A big 4 accounting firm. Very risk averse, audit concerns continually interfered with the business of consultancy. A good place to work but an average place to build a business.

Many many years ago and still as busy today
Secretary to Director (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London2 December 2017
I worked here as a secretary many years ago. We had 6 secretaries rammed into a tiny room, one of which was not easy to get along and you're stuck with them day in day out!. It's probably changed in that respect but as to the job we were inundated. Looking at the job spec now it's just as bad. They pile the work on you... tons to type, phones constantly ringing, no time to even get a cup of tea. Day in day out you'll be worked to be bone for that salary. Don't say I didn't warn you! Just look at the list of duties!
Pros
Pay
Cons
Work overload

Pros

Small salary

A great place to work with an unrivalled culture if you are keen to put management consulting above other life commitments. The firm rewards those who truly commit to this lifestyle. It is not for everyone.

Management Consultant - Strategy & Operations (Former Employee) –  London25 October 2017
KPMG really puts emphasis on people and the culture and is by far one of the most supportive and culture rich organisations I have worked at.

There is less emphasis on the bottom line all the time and more on doing things taking the team and client into account. The Firm also spends a lot on people and events and performance reviews.
Pros
Daily lunch allowance, on client site and work premises
Cons
work life balance can suffer

Great place to work
Manager (Former Employee) –  Deal Advisory4 October 2017
I worked for KPMG for six years, thereof three years in Munich and three years in Boston.

I enjoyed working in the KPMG environment and can't speak highly enough about the opportunities and responsibilities that were offered to me.

I was working in Deal Advisory - Transaction Services. I think it's a great service line to start as it enables you to quickly expand your technical knowledge towards various industries and with that to unique market trends and specific business and valuation drivers.
Pros
Flexible work schedule, high responsibilities, high learning curve
Cons
High workload
