Avis généraux sur l'entreprise KPMG (Kochi, Kerala)
Incompetent and unprofessional
The worst experience of my career. I had the misfortune of working with a terrible team at KPMG kochi. Toxic, unfriendly and non-collaborative that's how I would describe the team. And no point telling your grievance to top management they do absolutely nothing. This is what happens to a company when incompetent people are hired who do not imbibe the culture and values the organization set forth and as a result are unable to inculcate such values across the organization. This ultimately will affect the brand. People sign up to work for such companies expecting world class professionalism but are then subjected to local unprofessional behavior. Inexperienced team lead taking advantage of lack of accountability due to work from environment is a nightmare for new recruits as they end up being treated poorly and mismanaged. Work not being alloted on time, poor communication and collaborative spirit, team members trying to act superior based on seniority to new joinees just an overall bad vibe.
continuous improvement, learning and development, on the job training, acceptance and respect, proper monitoring, guidance and assessment.
Transparency in communication is one of the best thing i have ever experienced from this firm. along with that, the management and leaderships are always ready to listen and accept the thoughts of people irrespective of designation.
on a continuous basis we had job training to make sure that professionals are on the right track and they are capable enough to understand the updates.
Quality of output without any compromise is one of the great highlight, which always add goodwill to this firm.

A better work place for freshers.
KPMG GDC is a 100% subsidiary of KPMG US. We can learn a corporate structure and a corporate behaviours here and also learn what a real auditing happens. Management is really supportive but in some cases we can find partiality. The hardest part of the job is time. Because we are working in a high pressure environment so we need to continue or work even after our normal work time. Colleagues in my office is the most enjoyable movement in my company.
Points positifsCab facility
Points négatifsCafeteria services and breaks during the works
Excellent Platform to Begin
KPMG Global Services is one of the best available platforms for young aspirants to kickstart their career. Company offers best in industry salary package, recreational facilities, good working culture etc. Even though company's clients are from foreign, we do not have to work on night shifts. Cons are work life balance is poor. During peak seasons (15 days every month for my process) we have to stretch till night 9 o clock which is disgusting. Also average performers cannot survive long in the company.
