What I liked

Great people who wish the best for each other. Flexibility of work conditions. Mentors that guide you to become a better professional.

What I wish was different

I wish they had a better internal structure that motivates and ensures part time employees. Part time employees are confused because they are not an intern, yet not an associate. It would be beneficial to have a set procedure and goals to determine upper placement of part time employees.

KPMG is one of the best firms to work with for a reason. They have great people and energy. If you want to work with KPMG, make sure you have good energy.

What I liked

I really liked working as a team. It was always nice to work collaboratively and to have their experience as a resource but still be able to feel pride in your individual work.
