During my tenure at KPMG, my primarily job role as a team member on various consulting assignments across India and Africa was to work with middle and lower level client management on improving their business processes. This involved extensive meetings with clients to understand their business and operational processes, either related to the entire organization or a specific function within an organization. I then analyzed the business process, applying quantitative analysis where possible and provided recommendations on how the process could be improved in order to achieve the output in a more efficient manner. Additionally, I also worked with clients on setting up entire departments within their organization. This taught me how to think about a business issue in a structured manner. Further, it gave me an in-depth view into the complexities of organizations and how business processes fit into the bigger picture. Through these projects, my data analysis skills were strengthened. I learnt how to use Excel and Access to analyze large amounts of data and provide relevant output. Furthermore, I developed excellent client management skills through the combination of meeting deadlines and client commitments. This also strengthened my business communication skills and I developed the ability to be clear and concise while communicating in a professional environment.
When I was not working on client assignments, I worked with KPMG senior management on their business development init
Points positifschallenging work, travel, support, strong training
Boost analyst-poor management, poor pay, generous benefits, ridiculous guidelines for any promotion
If you get this job be aware that you are basically picking up the slack for other companies at a much much lower pay rate. They also said when hired that this job was fully remote but that has now changed to 3 days/week on site and that messed up a lot of coworkers child care/etc, office leadership is bad and has poor communication. Even if you manage to do exceptional work your promotion depends on a load of guidelines AND if your manager "recommends you"(KPMG calls it a People Management Leader) even if he or she is not directly involved in your engagement. Culture is typical of a big company that you will be overwhelmed by it(and also weighs on your performance review). Once an engagement ends you will be left in limbo for a while, so expect to hop from engagement to engagement if you manage to stay for the first 2 years(you cannot transfer to another position during this period)
Points positifsRemote work(if you can get the right engagement), july/december weeklong paid breaks(doesnt count against pto), early friday leave on summers
Points négatifsPoor leadership/leadership communication, poor pay, confusing and annoying guidelines to get promoted
Good work place which inspires to find new solutions
I have been working since 14 months with this company.
During this time period, I have learned some of very essential and crucial skills required in consulting field. I am currently working at a government client site on Vibrant Gujarat 2015 Project - a flagship investment summit of Gujarat state. As a part of the job, I am engaged in day-to-day dealing with the client, preparing promotional documents showcasing the strengths and opportunities present across sectors in Gujarat. Additionally, we are required to conceptualize events and seminars in consultation with the client throughout the year. I also coordinate promotional roadshows at international, national and state level.
The project requires a very efficient management of resources as well as work since we are required to work in tight deadlines provided by the client. Moreover the job offers a dynamic work situation which has helped me to learn to adapt to the changes and tackle new challenges effectively.
Points positifsAccommodation, travel and additional cost is borne by the company
Overall I would like to give only 1 star out of 5.
What is the best part of working at the company?
It depends on landing in a good team and department also. If you get a good team or department you will get to learn so many things. Otherwise you might end leaving the job .

Daily basis target and office politics was the most stressful part of this company. You have to achieve the target otherwise you have to extend till you achieve your Target or you have to work on weekends also without even getting paid.
What is the work environment and culture like at the company?
The department where I worked was not very good in environment. You have to be very strong others wise you will become victim of office politics.
What is a typical day like for you at the company?
When project was about to end it got so much hectic. We had to work under so much pressure.
Brilliant environment to work filled with a lot of fun and self building activities.
I have definitely evolved as a human being working with KPMG. It does reflect a lot on your personality as it is very balanced and professional environment. Alongside working, I have also been a part of KPMG's cricket team and Social Service team which helped me develop outside the workplace. The management was incredible which helped me learn a lot of skillsets and climb the ladder with immense knowledge and incredible relationship building skills as it is a very open environment to develop yourself. There were so many fun activities which includes ping pong, carrom, celebrating all the festivals together as a family. I'd definitely recommend KPMG to all the folks trying to look out for jobs in today's market.

Overall, KPMG is a fantastic place to work for anyone seeking a fulfilling career in management consulting.
Joined KPMG as a fresher and this company was a good platform to start my career. The work culture is decent, not much pressure. Learned corporate etiquettes and well adjusted with MS excel, Word, Outlook etc. Handling big accounts, achieved monthly billing targets and was highest achiever of the MUI(manpower utilisation) for the location. Have prepared reports, invoices and have taken responsibility of senior in his absence. Also, I was equally involved with the extra cirricular activities organized by KPMG. Good repo with team members and colleagues of other departments. Beginning my career with a Big Four has been fruitful.
its good for beginners . but difficult to hang on the job.
basically its the only company that does background verification of ex- employees. so there is alot of work load on the verification team . this team is very small compared to the other departments . the pressure just increases with each passing day , its not the hardest job but its very stagnant and people tend to drift away fro what they are supposed to do .management is very policy related only for the benefit of the firm , its does not benefit the employe in any concern.
therefore the people resign their jobs in few months.
I had a very good experience in working with KPMG. It's a great organisation and the senior management is also very co-operative and friendly with the employees. I worked in the UK shift, i.e., 11 AM to 8 PM. The most enjoyable part of the job was that we use to celebrate each and every small or big festival in the office premises as we don't use to get leaves on Indian holidays. I worked on the RBS project of Leeds, Manchester ,UK and we use to get holidays as per the UK calendar festivals. This was the hardest part of the job.
Thank You !
Points positifsFree Cab facility and food vouchers during OT.
I would rate them 5 out of 5 for shelling out professionals. It’s like a production line. They pay good money to train you into a problem-killing machine. BUT in my humble opinion, it’s not worth the toll on your mental health. They’ll put a straw in you, and suck the life out of you, checking to make certain you’re not dead as they do so. Colleague died and got a minute of silence. We continued typing as we stood in “silence”. I quit, met all conditions, but the final emoluments never came. Don’t do it!
Points positifsFree lunch, paid classes and exams for certification
Points négatifsParasitic culture, drains the life out of you, does not pay final emoluments
