    This year has been one of transition for KPMG, with U.S. chairman and CEO Lynne Doughtie announcing that she won't seek a second term and will end her leadership of the professional services firm in June 2020. The company continued to distinguish itself, from the perspective of employees, this year through its perks: student loan debt repaid up to $1,200 a year for each early career employee; health insurance; 36 paid days off each year, on average, for both full- and part-timers; and other benefits.
