Learning & Development Coordinator (Former Employee), Montvale, NJ – August 12, 2014
The firm is a nice place to work with a lot of friendly people; however there are times when I struggle with work/life balance and that is the hardest part about working here. Additionally, the pay is ok, but not great.

Since this is the my first place of work, I enjoyed the work and gained variety of experience/ knowledge. Though the work is hard and stressful, co-workers were really helpful to complete works on time.

Pros: gym membership
KPMG was a good experience for me but I was over qualified for the position and moved on to a more challenging position. A typical day would consist of requests from various departments to fix locks on cabinet doors, replace light bulbs or get details for internal staff moves. What I learned was that although KPMG was that we had over lapping department – more... that were capable of performing multiple tasks but weren't and we were a lot of man hours because. My co-workers were legacy employees who felt as if they were with the company long enough to be considered managers and would make it difficult to get requests fulfilled because they didn't want to take direction from new managers, but overall they new their job responsibilities but just lacked the education to move on the next level. – less
Transaction services is great if you can handle unpredictability.
Director - Transaction Services (Current Employee), Dallas, TX – August 4, 2014
My experience in transaction services has been great. Partners within my particular group genuinely care about their employees and are easy to communicate with about your career and goals. The work is intense and time sensitive, but if you are in transaction services then that is what you are looking for. Generally everyone in our group is highly motivated, – more... intelligent, and skilled in financial in analysis. It is pleasing to be around co-workers that all pull their weight and where everyone wants to learn. You are also at the front echelon of mergers and acquisitions which is exciting.
Hours and timing of transactions are difficult to predict, so you may have one week of a 30 hour work load and the next is 80 hour work load. Ultimately the unpredictability is the hardest thing about this job. – less

you will never get bored to work in KPMG, trust me NEVER!!!!! always fun to work at. 5 days in a week tremendous work pressure but luckily i had a very good team so working till late was never an issue. Management was a bit tough to handle, but its the same story in all the organisation. Team members were very supportive and ready to work on any sort – more... of project. The toughest of the job was we sometimes has to work on weekend which was intimated at the last minute. so due to client commitment there was never a NO coming out of the mouth.

Research Analyst (Former Employee), Rwenzori Courts Kampala Uganda – August 1, 2014
With the audit reviews to make for companies willing to participate in the top 100 mid sized company survey that took place annually,it was a good way to put my accounting skills to work since there were particular ratios that were computed so as to be summarized to competite in the survey. Some companies would not allow to realise their audit reports – more... even if you took an oath to keep the confidential yet it was highly required of us to be proffessional and maintain secrecy no matter what but those that came through was privillaged to meet the Managing directors or CEOs which was self sustaining. – less
