Avis généraux sur l'entreprise KPMG (Pretoria, Gauteng)
Great work environment filled with daily learning and growth
Turnaround Strategy of a National Department
- Report daily at Client Head Office or Regional Offices
- Working daily with KPMG Partners, Associate Directors, Associate Consultant and graduates
- Interatcing and offering of solutions, ideas and assistance to the client's Chief Financial Officer, Directors, Deputy Directors and officials
A challenge has been working in the Public Sector environment daily and having to adapt to the environment instantly.
I overcame this challenge by putting my focus on building relationships with Public Sector Officials from the lower ranks to the management ranks with an inquisitive approach to understand the sector, its structure and its policies.
This resulted in being identified as one of the key role players within the project and being allowed the opportunity to spread throughout the regions.
The most enjoyable part is gaining valuable skills daily, offering solutions to challenges and continuously developing as a professional
Points positifsI with a group of highly effective people
Points négatifsSometimes the client is not committed to transformation.
Challenging Work Environment
A typical day at work would start off with a Monday management/ Status update meeting.
I would run with my tasks that have to be completed, if i finish them before they are due i would find out what the next plan of action would be and start planning and giving inputs.
I have grown from a graduate to a working class person with many skills.
The hardest part of my Job is getting the client to help meet deadlines, as I am on a client project and not office based.
The most enjoyable part of my job is working with different people day after day, learning and developing new skills and knowledge
Points positifsLunches, Events
Points négatifsLong Hours, Tight deadlines
Training contract in Pretoria
A typical day in Pretoria will be a day of laughter, learning and speaking Afrikaans. The work culture in Pretoria is the most enjoyable part of the job.
Management is set on personal growth of every employee and is supportive and informative. Coworkers is friendly and do not mind teaching you the ins and outs of the business.
KPMG Pretoria is a smaller branch of KPMG SA, therefore there is limited jobs available and tight budgets, limiting benefits and job security.

Professional friendly environment
Everyday had a new challenge. As part of an audit you would work in an audit team that is diverse and from different backgrounds. This allows an individual to grow a lot by learning from others and then using what you have learnt to coach your other team members.
All though i did not get to work long at KPMG i can honestly say it was a good working place that gave me a good learning curve of dedication and helped me to be disciplined. I have learned a lot there and it is a great working place
