My typical day at KPMG will always start off from client and partner management to reviewing of audit work papers in accordance to audit strategies, planning and procedures previously agreed and signed off with engagement partner. This includes handling any queries raised by the team and solving any issues on hand and to update the status report of audit.
The enjoyable part will be to discover important management point or to help identify any potential control failures as these are value adding to the client and increase the quality of audit work.
This includes summarising all the management points and to raise discussions with the CFO before arranging with Managing director or Audit committee together with our engagement manager and partner.
The hardest part will be to gather all necessary audit evidences to support any case of management point. This is tedious but fruitful as the process of investigation allows for deeper understanding of the area of weak controls and increases the value of audit work. It also opens up potential business opportunities with the client (i.e. Corporate group tax services , transfer pricing etc)
What i have learnt is a deeper understanding of the financial health of different companies, their risk management system and a greater exposure on the application of many key accounting standards (ie. Business combination, Financial instruments, Leasing, Investment properties etc)
Points positifsStrong training materials and expert knowledge support

KPMG helped me in my professional growth and development over the last four years. I have learned so much and the guidance and mentorship have been invaluable. The staff are such a supportive and dynamic team. Working at KPMG has provided me with one of the most satisfying experiences of my career.
The hardest part of the job was definitively meeting the budgeted costs taking into account the late hours put into the job to meet client deadlines and deliverables. However, the support of the managers and partners made it possible to complete given tasks before the required timeframe.
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people from different works of life as we had to audit different industries. I got to learn more of the company environment as well as develop my professional client portfolio.

An excelent firm where people can learn a lot of things
I arrive to the office and there are portfolios to assess. the complexity will depend on the kind of Financial Instruments there are in the portfolios. In general for each new product I can learn about a new metrics for valuation. All my team work with the portfolios for audit purposes including the managers who will review the results on the working papers to send to audit team. the hardest part of our work is the strict deadlines to finish the valuation process. All the coworkers collaborate in group to find solutions and get to send working paper in the established deadlines. The most enjoyable part of my job is the moment i get a new knowledge about Financial Instruments and markets in Brazil or Latin-America.
Points positifsOportunity to learn about processes of different areas and clients.
Points négatifsStrict deadlines that sometimes required overwork.
Challenging with many opportunities to work with the best
During audit peak period we are usually at our clients' sites, going through the accounts and processes with clients, performing audit procedures and document our audit findings such that the final product - annual report, presents a true and fair view of our client's financial performance and position.
We have clients from diverse industries and every new engagement is a new learning opportunity. Different clients have different working style and different business models/operation. The learning curve is steep but once you grasped it and have a good understanding of the business, asking clients the relevant and right questions and getting your work done, the fulfilment is immeasurable.
The most enjoyable part is the endless learning opportunities and working with teammates that are equally dedicated as you are.
Plenty of growth opportunities, much training provided, but on the job you're almost thrown into the deep end of the pool. Form good relationships so you have people to turn to for help. Very young workforce, almost everybody is fresh out of university, managers are mostly within 10 years age difference.
Nature of job:
Prepare to slog your guts out during peak audit season. The nature of the job itself is demanding. You are expected to know your stuff or do research. Hot desking can be a boon or a bane. You bring your office supplies everywhere with you, which can be a burden on short engagements. Flexi-hours, meaning your supposed 9-6pm job can stretch to 10pm and later.
Great stepping stone for fresh grads. If you're not into auditing, don't stay too long.
Points positifsMany learning opportunities
Points négatifsVery long hours
