"I may have only worked at KPMG for 8 months, but I'm not impressed with the company. I was told, when I was hired, that I may be underpaid compared to the industry standard. That was an understatement. In comparison to the amount of work that I do and the compensation received, I'm nowhere near my colleagues in other companies. Additionally, I was hired because of my IT technical knowledge. This is heavily underutilized. I feel more like an accountant than an IT professional."

"My last position at KPMG was interesting yet disappointing. They are very invasive when it came to employment background check. I can understand a standard background check, but it became too personal. The people on the desk were very nice and helpful. In general I liked the job but left due to being underpaid and the process didn't seem correct. They didn't leave a lot of work to help desk and most issues were routed out, I felt I could of resolved a lot of those issues."
