This review is in regards to the EMC team.
From the first day to my last day, I suffered while working at the downtown Los Angeles location. I remember that on my first day, the first thing my boss told me while walking up to meet her was "oh Jesus Christ" for no reason at all. Well, that was a warm welcome. I was always made to feel that I was unwelcomed at the company and I am not sure why. No matter how much I put in terms of effort, I was always told some nonsense of how I could better do things. I would get stared at randomly with no effort to conceal it. I felt that some individuals were doing their best to get me fired. So much was the discomfort that I eventually had to talk with the Human Resources which led me to leaving the position.
The training was abysmal. Training was a by-product of people's schedule. If there was time on their schedule for training, then there will be training. There was no training for itself. While in training, nothing was formal or organized. You just had to shadow fellow employees which was not the best way to go about this because of the nature of the position. Absolutely no manuals were given as a reference. You had to rely on asking questions to your peers.
The company atmosphere was infected with the attitude of "I got hired here so I am awesome". Too many people had an inflated sense of themselves. Efforts were made to "prove" how they are better than you. If you made any attempt to seem intelligent about anyt
A typical day at work was always fast paced. Constantly working with project teams to help create budget files, forecasting project economics and coordinating invoicing processes. Meetings were held frequently during the week with Partners, Senior Managers and Managers. My coworkers were very supportive yet very demanding. This was my first job in a huge company, therefore I learned so much relating to time management, relationship building, and working with a dynamic group of people. The most enjoyable part of my job was the traveling advantages. I attended training classes in other cities as well as having quarterly meetings in Seattle and Los Angeles. The hardest part of the job was learning how to prioritize since the work load was fairly heavy; it constituted a lot of overtime.
Points positifstraveling and leadership support
Points négatifssome partners and leadership had unreasonable time lines.
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
Relax and friendly environment. A pleasure to have worked there.
Report to work at 7am, started computer to review work requests, projects for the day, review deadlines, prioritize, respond and print reports to be distributed to management.
I learned a lot about tax accounting and schedules.
Schedule and setup events. Co-workers were an extension of my family. We still keep in touch.
Keeping up with the daily changes and revisions for Tax Laws and regulations and when and where to apply them.
Traveling to between our four locations an building relationships with the members of those offices.
Points positifsTravel and Community Services
Points négatifsMinimal Personal Contact with Clients
Most of the time were are in the main office to manage our various clients. I learned time management and resilience. My co-workers were very hardworking and willing stay over night just to finish our tasks. Hardest part of the job is lack of time. Because we need to attend to our clients need at the same or limited time. Enjoyable part is the contentment after all the audit procedures were done,
There is no typical day at KPMG. Employees are offered a range of assignments that diversifies their experience and gives skills in new areas. Travel is extensive in the consulting side of the business but is offset by the opportunity to work with Fortune 500 clients. Highly competitive work environment but it is also collaborative.
Points positifsSummer Friday jumpstarts, leaving the office at 3 pm
Everyone was smart, focused and hardworking. Management was great. The challenge is the audit cycle, which demands a lot of hours above and beyond a long day. It's a great place for young professionals.
Points positifsGreat team, great opportunities, great benefits
Points négatifsAt certain levels, most of the team was young. A mix of ages would have been a good thing.
Large company with much opportunity for the right candidates
Typical day at work requires reviewing and responding to firm partner and other parties requests; processing and communicating research results regarding billing application and processing, investment analysis, project set up, continuous learning
I enjoyed my time at KPMG and think it is an excellent place to begin a career in the accounting field. The management is very supportive and there is a lot of training to make sure you're up to date. In public accounting, you learn nearly every day, however some of the work is quite tedious.
KPMG is an excellent employer that takes its people seriously and treats them as a priority. Everyone has a great background, and continuously works to improve as individuals and collectively for the betterment of the firm.
