Don't sign up due to them not honoring bonuses. They are not driver friendly.

March 2017

You're going to need to fight for your voice to be heard and your ideas to be taken seriously, moreso than dudes. It's very much an Old Boys' Club where the men who've been at the company the longest get carte blanche for their ideas, and women get steamrolled.

It's mediocre for parental benefits, with limited time off and inflexible hours.

September 2016

This is a very female-dominated agency which can be typical for the PR industry. It was one of the few places I've ever worked which is the case though, so there were no issues with gender discrimination or typical issues I'd experienced in the past. The people are truly great and the management is often able to re-arrange their schedule and be available for their children - the president works remote in Ohio. Work-life balance depends on the campaigns and clients. If it is a busy time, you'll be working long hours. If you are a member of junior staff, you will be working long hours regularly, however that is pretty standard for the PR industry.

Prepare to sacrifice your life. You'll be expected to not bring new ideas and never express your opinion. Boss doesn't like being "one upped".

February 2016

Women in management are mostly found in support divisions such as human resources. Of the five regions in the Nation, there is only one female regional director. There are career ladder issues such as gaps in grades in most offices between management and workers, which prevent promotion because promotion requires time in the next lower grade. Or opportunities are severely limited due to occupational specialty. Lastly, women are frequently bullied by male management. Eventually women must concede or the yelling just gets louder.

November 2015

Women are encouraged to develop personally and professionally within the firm. There is room for growth, opportunities to step back if necessary, an emphasis on having a personal/family life, and in enjoying where you work. It's the best legal position I've seen for young female attorneys and working mothers.

October 2015

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.
