Senior Tax Manager : avis sur KPMG
Job without challenge with poor upper management, assured of certain hours without ever mentioning a relocation. Great co-workers.
As has been typical of Big Four public accounting firms, the hours were many more than I had been told they would be - 60 hours a week. Shortly after joining the firm, I was asked to begin helping the Kansas City and Omaha. I was asked to begin flying to Kansas City bi-monthly and it ws likely thst I would be asked to relocate.
Aside from the forementioned, the Partner I reported to, waa located in California resulting in lack of mentor, guidance and ability to understand the volume of the workload and the enviroment of both our specialty area and the office
Points négatifspoor upper management
Cutting edge projects and employee development
Typical day included balancing production with results and client satisfaction.
Learned how the best accounting firms tackle the toughest tax issues.
Culture was hands off -- sink or swim. Which was OK with me.
Hardest part of job was dealing with the political environment.
Most enjoyable part was working with young professionals (I was in charge of recruiting for the tax department).
Points positifsWorking with and for the best in the industry
Points négatifsPressure to sell hours to my clients even if they didn't need it
Productive, competitive but with great benefits
Its a very competitive and thriving culture. The hours can be very challenging especially in tax and audit positions however you have many benefits such as flexibility to work from home as long as it fits the business model you are working in. They offer great medical and dental plans and you can contribute to a 401(k) which is great for your future.
Diverse client base in a professional environment
KPMG is proud to be a diverse professional firm. I worked with some great people and served clients in a number of industries. Because of some specialized knowledge, I was able to work on special project outside of my region.
Points positifsGreat clients
great place to develop and build your career
great place to develop and build your career overall, with access to all experts, research tools, industry knowledge, great people, and ability to specialize in a particular area of interest.
Served clients requiring assistance implementing large, labor intensive, leveraged, federal
tax projects. The most enjoyable part of this job was teaming with other professionals.
Points positifsCompensation and benefits
Points négatifsJob security
As you move up the ranks, the cut throat behavior and never ending administrative duties along with bland work never seem to end. Need to make sure you are in a specialty group to keep intellectually sharp.
I have enjoyed my time working at KPMG for the most part. The hours are long but the benefits are pretty decent. Working for a Big Four firm can be challenging and it requires perseverance to move up the ladder.
Productive and fun.
I was at KPMG for a total of 8 years. The clients were interesting and I liked the partner, staff and clients. There were interesting issues with different clients.
