Great people, low pay
Senior Accountant (Current Employee) –  Waterloo, ON1 April 2019
The CPA designation can be obtained anywhere now. It is about time the big 4 pay a competitive salary. Can get easily 35% increase in salary going to industry.

Superficial culture
Buyer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 March 2019
Too corporate for my taste.
Nothing gets done because we are sending emails, updates, writing reports, scheduling meetings etc.
To be fair there is no workplace harassment and people are kind overall.
The pay is ok.
But I do not recommend it to anyone who would like to have a sense of belonging at the workplace.
Pros
Flexible working place
Cons
Superficial

Consultant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 March 2019
Great company to work for with lots of opportunity to grow within the firm. Busy season tests your ability to manage multiple clients and tasks but teaches you high level leadership and team skills that are beneficial for future development.

Would work here again
Senior associate / .Net Application administrator (Former Employee) –  Saint Louis, MO8 March 2019
I loved my time with KPMG. The US firm provided me with everything I needed to perform well in my position. Helpful coworkers, supportive management teams, and benefits to feel appreciated. I would still be in the position if not for moving after getting married.
Pros
Support, great benefits, fantastic work life balance
Cons
Highly structured change management made projects overly complex
