senior associate Job Reviews
Women who are senior associates have an overall job satisfaction level of 3.6, 75% of them believe there is gender equality in their firms, and make an average salary range of $50k-$80k.
It's easy to have flexible time if you're comfortable speaking up.
I have only been at KPMG for 5 months, but I have worked for two other Big Four consulting firm, and this is my favorite by far.
They are quick to promote men. Women are seen in senior levels, however the diversity in culture stops short. Obviously certain cultures stand out as the front face of the office. If your skin color does not match the more senior level staff you will be overlooked regardless of how hard you work at your job. Vacations are great IF you can fit them in. They do offer full comprehensive benefits. Flexibility is offered but inconsistent amongst teams. And if you do not have children be prepared to dedicate a lot of hours towards your work as other team members will look to you for coverage of you don't.
The firm has many resources available to assist women in balancing family life, as well as networking with other women in similar situations.
Negotiate your salary and advocate for yourself and your career.
Too much work pressure. Sometimes very long working hours. Difficult to manage.
Hard to say. There are no set policies so it really depends who you work for as to how things will go.
I've worked here for more than 5 years and I've experienced incredible flexibility and support from my colleagues. I work a reduced schedule at 60% (3 days a week) to allow the type of work / family balance I desire and I am able to work from home on a virtual team. Working for such a large firm has its advantages because there are so many avenues you can explore.
I've seen women at all levels here, with plenty of upper management role models. The days can be long and the work stressful, but there does not appear to be any inequality between men and women.
Management is male-dominated. Lots of women in internal roles, with delivery leadership heavily male. "Entrepreneurial" values, self-promotion is important to advancement.
