KPMG's Silicon Valley Office

Community information

Silicon Valley, a part of the San Francisco Bay Area, is an energetic and eminent area for venture capital, high-tech, and social networking companies, such as Google, Apple, and Facebook.

KPMG's Atlanta Office

San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area offer world-class art and culture as well. You can enjoy fabulous restaurants in San Francisco, excellent wine in Napa, and wonderful golf courses in Pebble Beach. Also, Santa Cruz Mountain and Yosemite National Park are perfect for your outdoor adventures (camping, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, etc). There is no limit for having fun in the Bay Area!

San Francisco Bay Area contains 7.4 million people, and is the sixth-largest Combined Statistical Area in the U.S. The Bay Area is renowned for its natural beauty, liberal politics, and diversity. The area is affluent; it includes the five highest counties in the state by per capita income and two of the top 25 wealthiest counties in the United States.

In addition, the Silicon Valley office has the Bay Area's relaxed attitude – we have Jeans day on Mondays and Fridays.
