Good place to build career and get exposure to different markets/industries/sectors. Dynamic team setting working with people from different backgrounds locally and globally.
Culture can be very individual performance based even though it operates largely within teams. Competitive both horizontally and vertically across the company.

On-boarding is very poor if you are new to the office. If you joined as an experienced hire from another Big 4, it is always obvious at management level as you are hardly ever considered to be one of them.
Some partners are also narrow minded and it trickles down the chain of command with several of the Senior Managers managing perception than doing the work. Each claiming to be an expert in one thing and in actual sense lack the depth to be a complete accounting expert.

I had heard the other big fours are better and I now believe it might be accurate. The culture at kpmg is far from nice. The career opportunities are not great either. If you are lucky, you may get treated well by the partners but generally the management sucks. Not sure why they are getting a high rating from indeed. This is not where you want to be.

From an delivery perspective the firm is top notch, but sales culture needs to be beefed up.

I've worked with amazing people (both from the service delivery side and internal firm support team)

Cookie cutter professional services firm, project based delivery,
Culture depends on project team and core teams capabilities.

Typical day varies on client engagement, delivery timelines and the team.

I am a consultant and also an auditor. Every day is different and you work on multiple projects at once. Staff are friendly and dedicated to completing all the work before deadline. Lots of growth opportunities.

Advantage takers for contractors with no payment for extended overtime due to their lack of resources. Little help for the helpless without recourse to get a fair and equitable work place.

KPMG has been a great place for me to start my career as a CA. They provide exensive training and great social events, however they do require long thank-less hours of work.

Overall I would recommend this company to anybody looking to start a career in accounting.
Pros
Great training and people
Cons
Long hours
