Whilst working as an intern in KPMG Kuwait in the Management Consulting Department for a period of ten weeks, I had a great learning experience. The staff consist of mostly young people who make the workplace competitive and interesting and warm. Everyone was so supportive and always ready to teach and explain and help understand. Through my internship I learnt a lot about Management Consulting and the kind of work is done on a daily basis, such as attending client meetings, preparing Minutes of Meetings, setting benchmarks for other firms, and helping clients run smoothly and effectively.
Due to such a supportive staff I never had a hard time at work. However, I released that it is essential to have attention to detail and be a good listener and be able to understand the topic during client meetings and listing important points on which further discussion was required.
Overall, The the internship gave me an opportunity to get an insight into Management Consulting and I experienced the exposure of working with KPMG Kuwait
Points positifsSufficient work and projects
Points négatifsTravel and food expenses were not paid
Management can do better
Not the worst company to work for, not the greatest. They like to say that you "own your career" here, but my experience has been that my career owned me. Career advancement advice was not given to me at all in my first 3 years and I had to figure everything out on my own. My PML's were absolutely horrible. By the time I got promoted, almost 5 years into my career, all of my colleagues had already been promoted twice and it was humiliating to be promoted to a level that all my coworkers literally started at. I had to finally tell myself enough is enough and leave.
Points positifsNice people
Points négatifsManagement does not do a good job guiding lower ranked employees for promotion
Great learning curve
Research, data capturing, analysing and report writing (recommendations) was a daily routine. I learned about research, feasibility studies, analytics and how to deal with government employees (municipalities etc.). The management led by example which was inspiring and motivational. The culture was very strict corporate with little room for fun and excitement. The hardest part of the job was dealing with government agencies, and the most enjoyable part was working across a vast range of tourism and hospitality projects.
Points positifsFrequent travel
Points négatifsVery strict systems and processes, little room for innovative thinking
Great team that I learn a lot from
No two days are the same and it is very dependent on the project you are working on. I learn to work with variou people and have to flexible to adjust to various work-styles and managing styles.
The team I am in is vibrant and young and come from different backgrounds, creating room to learn from one another.
I am expected to be able to work independent, but communicate regularly to keep everyone in the loop.
Points positifsDifference things all the time and working with different people
Points négatifsWorking hours are unpredictable - dependent on the project
Insightful, on-the-job learning opportunities
- initiating meetings with key client stakeholders (e.g., CIO, CFO, etc.) for the purpose of commencement of the audit.
- understanding the IT framework of the client and framing in-scope key controls for the audit.
- worked closely with senior managers, directors on various business development projects (over and above audit).
- Difficult and time consuming part of the job - Travel to distant client locations
- Opportunities to experience and adapt to different work cultures (e.g., UK, Singapore, Germany, etc.).
Good place to learn
Experience will greatly depend on team and direct leadership. Good learning opportunities, often long hours, lots of travel. Focus is on sales and less on people development and retention, but I believe they are trying to improve this. Relationships with direct colleagues (below partner level) are amazing - you will make friends for life.
Points positifsGreat learning opportunities (different projects); good benefits
Points négatifsLong hours; high-stress environment; less people-focused

KPMG really puts emphasis on people and the culture and is by far one of the most supportive and culture rich organisations I have worked at.
There is less emphasis on the bottom line all the time and more on doing things taking the team and client into account. The Firm also spends a lot on people and events and performance reviews.
Points positifsDaily lunch allowance, on client site and work premises
Points négatifswork life balance can suffer
It was a really great job, though stressful with long hours at times.
First there is your day to day job where you have to bill hours. Everything else is done after hours because its not billable: training, proposal writing, meetings, etc. They eventually ran out of work in my skill set and I was realigned to a new managing director and on the road to wherever my skills took me. I eventually left due to the work/life imbalance.
I got the opportunity to work on multiple projects spanning digital strategy and transformation, digital visioning, industry benchmarking and maturity assessment, customer journey mapping and customer experience assessment, gap analysis and business case development, digital solution recommendation based on human centered design approach, roadmap design and transformation PMO.
