Nice atmosphere and really friendly colleagues but no good work-life-balance especially in the busy season.

    Audit is extremely inflexible, we are expected to sit at the client for 10-12 hours a day until our senior says we can leave.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Our clients sometimes do not take female auditors seriously, which is not necessarily Grant Thornton's fault, but we get very little support at the top during such occasions. Also, a majority of the auditors are young men who only want to talk about sports and oftentimes have whole conversations ignoring the (usually only one) women at the table.

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.
