Women's Job Satisfaction
and equally to men
to other women
The maternity leave is now expanded to 16 weeks, which is pretty generous. If you love accounting or accounting-related work, KPMG has decent perks and is a solid company to work for. The people are generally warm on the surface and the company emphasizes that it has a high-performance culture. The U.S. Chairperson and CEO is now a woman, too. However, if you are not an accountant or not in love with your work, then don't come here unless you just need a day job. Opportunities for non-accountants are few, and job duties generally remain the same even when you're promoted, unless you switch to a totally different job. However, chances of that are slim as they often want to hire only people who already fit every exact requirement of the job. The company is very conservative and not very creative, even though they are trying to improve their innovation and digital marketing. Most of the top senior women either don't have children, or had a stay at home spouse or nanny so they could dedicate many hours to the firm. Flexibility is much more available to those in the upper ranks than those in the rank-and-file, or even groups like Marketing. I have tried to request a flexible work arrangement without success. Leadership (including women leaders) like you if you show that your mind is 100% work-focused by talking about work all day. Certain sports are the favorites here, mainly golf (Phil Mickelson sponsor). In summary, definitely explore KPMG if you're an accountant. But if you're not one, then think hard about whether you want to work here.

In my year and a half at KPMG, I have been very impressed with how they treat women - specifically mothers. I have been able to take 16 weeks of 100% pay maternity leave (well, 6 of that was technically "parental leave"). Since I had only been at the firm for 6 months when I had my baby, I was worried how my time off would affect my job. The Office Managing Partner took time to talk to me before my leave and told me to not worry, and that I was looked at as an investment and that this was just for a short period of time. I was highly impressed by that. My office is definitely on the smaller end, which I believe has made a difference. My managers fight for me, and have worked really hard for me to not be scheduled on out-of-town jobs after I had my daughter. In the past year, I have been out of town for a total of 2 days (that does not include national/regional training). Busy season is always hard, but again, the in-charge staff and managers were very understanding if/when I had to leave early to pick up my daughter or take her to doctor's appointments. As a woman, KPMG treats me very well. No discrimination or limitations in the least.

KPMG has a myriad of ways to support all their employees. I found as a woman leader, I have tremendous opportunity and flexibility to achieve the career aspirations I desire. I have witnessed leaders in the firm bending over backwards to make it work for employees. It is a caring, family oriented workplace that will go to the mattresses for thier people. When illness or family issues ocurr, it's family and employee first--work is last. I've seen personal financial contributions from partners made to help people who are in hardship from personal tragedy. I've witnessed Partners coming to homes and making calls when an employee suffers loss. Real care and concern is demonstrated and it is heartfelt. In any workplace there are always those whose behaviours may not reflect the core values of the company--and it is true at KPMG--but that is not the firm's behaviour--that's an individual's choice. KPMG is a great employer with endless opportunities for those who seek a gratifying career with purpose and meaning--you can make a difference to your community, family and marketplace everyday--making the world a better place.
