Financial Management Specialist : avis sur KPMG
Lots of new things to learn out of College, but easy to get misplaced in the shuffle
Throughout various client projects I was able to learn many different skills both technical and softer inter-personal business skills. Initially my experience was fast-paced; I was immediately scheduled on a project and, attending meetings with various clients within weeks, and producing substantial deliverables on my own.
On-the-whole the typical work week was traveling to the client-site on Mondays and leave on Thursdays, staying at local hotels durring the week. Hours tend to be around 50+ hour weeks. On Fridays, you are implicitly expected to go into your local office to take care of some administrative work and network.
I had been moving from project to project every 6 or 8 months. However, I've found myself on a very long term engagement and have started to feel stagnant in my role. I've struggled to transition away from this project.
As my first job out of college, I expected some substantial guidance and training. I felt a rather consistent lack of support in this regard. I often felt like the development path picked for me was not fully considered.
In spite of some of the frustrations depicted here,I have no regrets about joining the firm. My co-workers have been typically great to work with and approachable. If you are prepared to travel and firmly drive your own career path (and experienced doing so), there can be great opportunity for you here. Be prepared to deal with some internal inefficiencies and bureaucracy.
Points positifsGood compensation, time off, potential opportunities, friendly co-workers
Points négatifsProblems in various internal processes: on-boarding, accessibility of peers, training.
