The firm us very flexible. However, there are no women partners in my group. (About 70 male partners).

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.

The firm has many resources available to assist women in balancing family life, as well as networking with other women in similar situations.

They have the policies that women need but sometimes you need to push for them to come to fruition for yourself.

I've worked here in non client-facing roles for nearly three years and have seen almost no examples of sexism. KPMG has amazing benefits for new parents and BPG leaders are extremely accommodating when employees have to work alternative schedules. Work life balance is extremely important here as it helps us retain top talent.

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).

    If they are aware of the cons and are willing to take a risk, it could pay off but maybe at severe personal cost.

It is difficult to make the move from staff to management in support roles.

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.

    My answer to the previous question is yes and no. Even though the company has a good number of women leaders, depending on your department or team, YMMV.

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.

    If you are strong and vocal, and won't get easily intimidated being the only female in the crowd, then yes.
