    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at KPMG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits with pension, looks good on your resume/leverage, ability to work from home, structured, opportunity to grow (based on a strict plan)

    Cons

    You will notice favoritism, a lack of work-life-balance, a lack of inclusiveness in the actual everyday environment—even though due to company policy, they strategically give the illusion of inclusiveness as an emphasized value. It can be a toxic corporate environment, there's a lot of 'sneakiness' that goes on based on consistent word-of-mouth in my experience. Keep in mind that it is not a unionized firm to work for so they could let you go at any point without reason – I've seen good employees disappear. They claim to have a system in-place to avoid being blindsided in suddenly being let go but (based on favouritism); you will be blindsided regardless and they will pay you off – the Labour Board and/or lawyers cannot help you as a result. People who work for KPMG bleed KPMG so do not trust everyone.
