KPMG is the best environment to grow a career regardless of the division or unit you find yourself.
I started as an IT Helpdesk officer and I can tell you that I worked on more than enough laptops/servers than most of my other colleagues ion other organization. In the beginning, we had about 700 users, close to 1000 computers and 20 servers. Currently, the users have grown to 1500, about 2000 computers and 50 servers (VM inclusive).
We are a global firm and our IT infrastructure is line with Global trends and policies. We are involved in more than 10 IT projects yearly ( Removable Media Encryption, Workforce Enablement Programs - involves upgrade to Windows 7 SP1, IE 10, Office 2013, Lync, etc) across the office (please note that our users are very mobile, they are usually on client sites and we must not default on global timelines).
I also manage the SCCM Server, which means all upgrades are downloaded and applied by me, I ensure all servers and computers are adequately patched (Security Patches) on a monthly basis ( Global have issued 100% compliance and Audit Team check quarterly to ensure compliance). I ensure all computers have CCM client so that they can report to the server. I have been involved in Global Desktop Image Engineering for x32 and x64 bits machines.
As the Information Security Officer, I roll out Security Awareness Campaigns on a bi-monthly basis ( covers Social Engineering, Phishing, Protecting Confidential Information, Traveling abroad and Co
KPMG have been going slowly down hill for the last seven years or so - they are losing key staff right, ,left and centre. A pity as they used to be a excellent place to work. Poor senior management and a very short term outlook on business is to blame. I used to love working there, but now I am glad to move on.
Points positifsGreat inclusive culture
Points négatifsVery long hours / weekend and evening work expected for no overtime.
If you're looking to start your IT career this is a great place to start. How hard you work will dictate how far you go. You will have plenty of opportunities to prove you can do the work and prove you deserve new responsibilities.
Points positifsGreat Environment, Great People, Great Benefits, Great Work/Life Balance
