KPMG Maternity Leave Comments

  • "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." - Madam Madam
  • "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." - Lady Camila
  • "They treat women fairly and offer excellent maternity leave." - Lady Bruinbear123
  • "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." - Madam anonymous811
  • "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." - Lady Truth
  • "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." - Lady Trueword
  • "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)." - Lady HRBP
