Average
Audit Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 October 2017
It is great to work for an organization that gives so much back to the community. I love seeing my regular customers and sharing the ups and downs of their favorite sports team, and I welcome the newbies and relish in their excitement of being at the 'Dome for the first time, especially the younger children at their first hockey game or concert.

A great place to start a financial career, proactive atmosphere.
Audit Department, Assistant 1, Financial Services (Former Employee) –  Moscow13 September 2017
I worked for KPMG Russia for 9 months at Moscow office, Financial services sector. For me it was a fantastic experience to participate with the team of professionals carrying out audit and interim review procedures. My colleagues were always helpful and friendly seeking to share their knowledge about the audit process with lower-graded team members.

KPMG going back 10 years
Office Services Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB10 September 2017
Firm is going back 10 years with their restructuring by just thinking of the dollar. Long term non performing employees are safe because it's too expensive to get rid of them. The short term strong performing employees get the punt.

Manager, Cyber- Full time Employee (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 June 2017
Working at KPMG helped opening up the business world to me. Exposure to sales cycle including RFP responses, proposals, engagement letters and project management are all great things to know. In addition opportunity to network with executive leaders of the business is priceless. In addition, KPMG has a better culture in comparison to other big four. KPMG also has less travel requirements than the competition.
