Avis généraux sur l'entreprise KPMG (Sydney NSW)
Very Flexible work environment
KPMG has a very high reputation in the world. Sydney office has recently adapted Agile work environment where no one has their own desk (choose your desk on the floor everyday). Very flexible work environment with lovely staff, my typical day at work goes with troubleshooting all the issues and fulfilling all needs of around 240 employees of Sydney Audit & Financial services department of the firm.
I have learned lot of Admin tasks including spreading out weekly basis reports, announcing for good news or social activity meetings, troubleshooting timesheets related issues, allocating lockers, looking after stationary, collecting new employees and introducing them to the staff etc. I have also improved my organisational skills.
All departments' management are so accurate, rapid fast and understandable, co-workers are so supportive and always willing to help.
There was no such a hardest part of the job.
I believe all social events occur within the firm would be the most enjoyable part of the job in which you get the chance being social and friendly with your co-workers. And of course the company provides you the freedom and flexibility.
Onboarding sucked and not appreciated
From the day I first started at KPMG, I have had ongoing issues with various access to programs and specific data points, which I was assured was supposed to be sorted out once I had signed my contract the week earlier. I have been there for months now, and still have ongoing issues with access and am reprimanded for not inputting the data when I don't have the access to be able to do that in the first place. I have constantly contacted IT and managers trying to sort everything out, but get brushed off and told it has been put on the backburner for someone else to sort out. Staff who have started after me have had any issues they raised sorted within a few days, but it has been months for me and nothing.
Points positifsWork from home
Points négatifsNo access to essential data/programs, salary and pay rises are not great, different standards with managers for quality assurance checks
Great for career advancement and variety of work
All my corporate experience comes from KPMG. I learned technical skills from project management, risk management, IT audit, process improvement, client and stakeholder management. I also learned soft skills including people management, coaching and mentoring staff, time management, prioritisation, working with different cultures and geographical locations.
Management were supportive and rewarded hard work.
Co workers were intelligent and collegial.
I enjoyed the travel and team atmosphere.
The hardest part was the long hours and competitiveness of peers.
Points positifsGreat team, good variety of clients, opportunity for travel
Points négatifsLong hours
- Supportive co-workers below manager level.
- Pays for CA.
- Yearly promotion.
- Good for university graduates who have no other work experience and want a 3-year crash course on the corporate struggle.
- Variety of clients and industries to work with.
- Opportunity to manage fairly quickly.
- Low-quality training.
- Horrible hours and worse pay.
- Majority of managers are poor at project management and worse at leadership.
- Division starts to notice you only after you have your CA and get job offers outside the firm.
- Strong culture of playing internal politics and favoritism.
- High employee turnover gets demoralizing.
Not a workplace I would recommend
The absolute worst working culture that I have ever experienced. The workload was extreme, role was disorganised and expectations were completely unrealistic. The ppl were unfriendly and attitudes were poor. I left there without a job to go to but it was the best feeling knowing I would not be setting foot in that place again. I was in a Manager role and I feel sorry for those entry level ppl who are worker like animals for minimal pay.
Points positifsGood induction process, nice office view
Points négatifsPoor management, extreme hours and workload
A very professional & friendly environment with a strong work culture. Plenty of scope to move up, or, across into other areas which adds to job enric
The Firm has very definite plans and goals for the future and the leadership is strong, clear and concise. The people who make up the Firm are hard working, friendly and all work as part of one team.
Points positifsFlexible working arrangments
Points négatifsCan be long hours
KPMG is a great resume builder!
Business analysts get to work on big projects with some of the worlds largest companies. The opportunities for networking and expanding your skillset are amazing, and you'll work with some extremely smart people.
Points positifsPersonal and professional growth
Points négatifsIt can be difficult to find a career track in the company
Inclusive, collaborative and agile work environment. Incredibly talented people to work alongside. I always felt supported and challenged in a constructive way to pursue my ideas. This company stands above the rest in professionalism, management and service for its clients.
great colleagues, terrible management
great working with nice team, however no one is genuine to help you and everyone has their own agenda.
Poor management, make you work long hours and weekends and you are underappreciated for the hard work you do
Points positifsgreat colleagues
Points négatifslong hours, under appreciated for hard work
Competitive work environment, good bonus/incentive structure
As a contractor, there is not a lot of job security. However, good work environment with lots of young and ambitious workforce. Fast paced and agile, lots of learning. Competitive pay.
