"Decent place to work as you get more senior, there are extremely busy times and stress but I think these can be planned for. Not a bad place to work if you want to stay in big 4 environment "

"It varies by really where you are at the firm, if you're client facing personnel, there is zero flexibility, intensive hours and high face time requirement. However, if you're in the internal roles, then you have more flexibility. The downside is the pay scale is significantly lower "

"There are flexible working arrangements and I would encourage you to use them. However, I felt that these arrangements were only available to women with children. This mostly makes sense, but if you’re the primary caregiver of someone who isn’t your child...I never ran into anyone like that with a flexibile work arrangement. It also seemed far more common that the employee negotiated the arrangement as a part of moving from another firm. During my time I never saw anyone start a flexible work arrangement, the only woman who had one, had it from the moment she stepped through the door. "

"Flexibility is entirely dependent upon your practice group’s SPU and the managers you work with directly. While my particular managers had no problem with us being flexible about work times (ie, “you may come any time as long as it’s by 9am”) or flexible about us being away for doctors appointments, there was never any ambiguity that we absolutely had to meet our chargeable hour requirements for the month/quarter/year. Be prepared to work many, many hours."

"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."

"This review is for the Nigerian practice, not the US one. Partnership & Management is male dominated. Women are hindered by maternity leave and the benefits that come with it (like closing early). Also, wanting to spend time with family and trying to have a work-life balance is not encouraged. This is evident in the number of female partners with children (some are still single in their 40's)."

"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."

"I have worked here for over 8 years and there are significantly more men than women in my group and overall. I think that if you are willing to speak up and take control you have an opportunity to succeed, however, it is still more of a boys club and you need to know how to maneuver that terrain. I haven't yet gone on maternity leave but have witnessed how some women are judged harshly by some colleagues, but are really overly supported by others. We have a really good maternity program in place, though I'm not sure how much of it is only on paper."

"In the initial interview process your interviewers will emphasize work life balance. You'll have to work portions of weekends from time to time. Not true. The corporation communications you receive will emphasize that KPMG values and encourages work life balance. Your reality will be very little work life balance. If someone in the firm wants something you are expected to deliver ASAP with no respect to the hour of the request. Employees are cogs in the machine and are considered more like robots than human beings who need sleep, downtime, and family time. KPMG is a place where individuality and creativity go to die. Once you get through the probationary period it is a stable job. However, it won't challenge you much after you become adept and your role. Opportunities to move up or move between departments are very political. Overall, my advice is to plan to stay there for two years max to get the name on your resume. During that time they will drain you as much as they can. Staying longer is for those who want to keep sacrificing their persona life."

"I've work here for 4 years and there are a lot of women working here, many in leadership roles. Generally I believe they all genders are treated fairly but a majority of the partners are men which makes it a little tougher to network and "connect" with them. The maternity leave is generous but I think women are judged harshly by some colleagues and managers for taking the full time. They could go a better job offering longer parental leave for fathers as well as training to PMLs on how to properly coach employees (both male and female) who are expending their families."

"I've worked at KPMG for 29 years and love the firm. I've been able to advance my career and the sky is the limit; however, you will work to get there. Leadership has a clear vision of where the firm is going and always invests in areas they deem are growing. If you are a woman, you will love the firm. Great with AWA, alternative work arrangements and flex time."

"While there are a lot of women in entry-level roles, the number progressively gets smaller as you get closer to the Partner level. The demands of the job make it difficult to have a work life balance if both people in the home are working this much. A lot of client entertainment events are also male oriented, like sporting events and golf tournaments so that doesn't leave a lot of space for women to form client relationships and might be discouraging at the managerial level."

"It is a boys club.There is a great deal of inappropriate behavior and un-professionalism that goes on and is accepted by the senior leadership. It is an especially uncomfortable work environment for women. I would advise women interested, to look into jobs at PwC, Deloitte or EY instead."

"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."

"Flexible work arrangements are possible while still doing interesting and challenging work in finance/asset management/regulations. The maternity leave policy has changed recently and is 16 weeks paid, and additional 10 weeks unpaid. 5 weeks paid vacation a year. There is still not than many women in senior leadership positions, but the company is trying to change that. Flexibility and time off s a plus, however salaries are below financial industry average. I feel like I am sacrificing my career a bit, but I like the flexibility."
