Office Representative : avis sur KPMG
Good experience working for a top tier company
KPMG was a good experience for me but I was over qualified for the position and moved on to a more challenging position. A typical day would consist of requests from various departments to fix locks on cabinet doors, replace light bulbs or get details for internal staff moves. What I learned was that although KPMG was that we had over lapping department that were capable of performing multiple tasks but weren't and we were a lot of man hours because. My co-workers were legacy employees who felt as if they were with the company long enough to be considered managers and would make it difficult to get requests fulfilled because they didn't want to take direction from new managers, but overall they new their job responsibilities but just lacked the education to move on the next level.
Points positifsGym membership
A really great place to grow and succed....
It was really the first professional company I worked for after leaving retiring from the service. I was relatively new to the civilian work force. They welcomed me with open arms. My office manager made sure I was comfortable in my new position. The door was always open for any questions I may have had. The environment was always joyful, my co-workers were great to be around. And the company itself had so much to offer.
I really enjoyed my duties. Even when we moved from the 32nd floor to the 27th. Wow....that was a week I will never forget. Files, records, office décor.
I learned a lot about corporate America and office politics. It really made me a more experienced person.
Points positifsEveryone was always ready to lend a hand.
Points négatifsHaving to park in the parking garage across the street.
Go to work in morning. check in, incoming postal mail. check with staff on daily events, confer with colleagues on daily events. check supply necessities.
address daily issues as to requests and such. respond to staff requests. replenish supplies, respond to service requests. coordinate with vendors. check supply inventories.
on a daily basis i learn how to address issues and do my job better. i also realize that my potential for promotion is little to none here the harder and better my performance is, does not reflect in my compensation.
Points positifsi have a job

Excellent place to work! Very competitive but fun!
Unfortunately, I had to leave overseas for some family emergency! Other than that, it lives up to its category as one of the "big 4" of Wall Street. My manager was awesome, no complaint whatsoever.
Points positifsCompetitive workplace, well-structured management
Points négatifsWork during the hectic season could become 24/7
Productive fun working place
Great company that takes care of their employees. you are able to work from home depending in the department you're in. Recognize employees outstanding performance with gifts.
Points positifsalways food around
Good laughs with good people. Physical work required that is not mentioned. The job descriptions always sound nice and professional but once you're here you're treated as if you're a partner which you are not.
I enjoyed working for the firm
Almost 15 years with KPMG and with this virus stuff continuing they had to make some hard choices and I was one of them otherwise I would still be working there.
Points positifsWork life balance
Not a bad company overall, totally depends who your manager is.
If your manager is not a good manager in any company it can be difficult, but it is teaching me to roll with the punches and how to deal with adversity.
My years with KPMG have been a great learning period and continue to grow on a daily basis. While some days were very fast paced, it's really what made my days most enjoyable.
