I was an intern at KPMG Audit and I really liked the people. Absolutely hated the work Bc audit, but I enjoyed the culture. If I’m stereotyping people that work at firms, I’d much rather chill with someone from KPMG than from Deloitte (I’ve had a lot of negative experiences with D folks, that I’ve never had with other Big4 or MBB folks).

Not a narrative to me when I’ve lived it over and over again - D has a culture problem.

FWIW, the culture is a lot more accommodating and flexible than other big 4s and the people are generally very nice. I have yet to come across a nasty or toxic person that I worked with, although I’m sure they exist. But I have worked with multiple teams there, and have not come across this.

which service line are you??

No. This forum is toxic and catty. KPMG delivers nearly identical services with nearly identical talent as any other B4 firm.

I just accepted a offer with KPMG. Really enjoyed the people i spoke with and was blown away by their offer (30% more than current comp) They definitely have the money to throw around so I'd highly recommend going through the interview process

What….? Lol. People I trust and respect have told me horrible things about their time at KPMG, so I believe them. The OP was soliciting questions about the firm, hence me sharing. You spent a lot of energy trying to read in between the lines and not enough reading them.

They reached out to me, took my ssn and ghosted me. Probably hired someone from east asia and gave them my ssn.

Just as bad as the other big 3 - in some ways better and some ways worse.

Everyone will have had a different experience. I spent many years there and loved it. It really depends on the group.

KPMG is okay overall IMO. If you get a good offer go for it!

OP - have you spoken to the recruiter and is the $$$ interesting?

My wife and I would like to retire at age 50 (or earlier). We’re in our early 30s.

At what point should we be reducing 401k/IRAs and redirecting to the taxable account? Otherwise our income balloons late in life. Curious how others are managing this.
