Technician : avis sur KPMG
Best accounting learning experience
A typical day at work would be a 1 mins discussion about the plans we have, the progress we have made and how much is left to finish. I learned a lot a technical information in taxes, and I also learned to work in teams, collaborate, and motivate others to work towards a goal.My management was excellent. I felt very motivated since day one, and I also felt they cared about my opinion and the way I felt about the job. My co workers were also pretty good, We came from different schools, but we really made a good team. The hardest part of the job were the long hours, sometimes 12 hours, since we did a lot of overtime during the tax season. The whole experience was very enjoyable.
Interns are treated very well compared to FT employees
Some interns were treated better than FT employees. The corporate culture changed during my time with the firm (17 years) and with management not willing to take the necessary steps to make improvements, the work environment grew more and more toxic. Many employees left the firm leading up to my separation from the firm. There is a high turnover in F&A and Intl Tax.
Points positifsBeing able to wear jeans on Fridays.
Points négatifsCommunication with Partners, Guidance/Direction for Career Advancement, Raises/Promotions
A firm with a world of potential
There are several paths one can take to achieve their goals as long as those goals coincide with those of the firm.
KPMG, while aiming for professionality, unfortunately came up very short on the educational side of things. For all intents and purposes, it was close to 75% learning as you go, and when you're working with multi-million dollar clients, there should be an extensive amount of focus on education and learning workshops, but there are none.
Points positifsGreat focus on community
Points négatifsVery little education
KPMG is a great place to work.
You will learn so much alongside a diverse group of talented individuals united by a drive for excellence. You will be given the tools and guidance to accomplish more than you thought you could do. Whether you stay with the firm or move on to other opportunities, you will not regret your time at KPMG.
Great and fun place to work.
Worked in both internal accounting responsible for inter-company accounts and prepared consolidation entries for all KPMG offices. Later work in the tax department performing quality assurance review on individual tax returns prior to final filing.
Big 4 firm
Typical big 4 culture. Work hard but lots of exposures to different companies and industries. It depends on your team and your managers which dictates the culture.
Points positifsBig clients lots to learn
Points négatifsFocuses on specific tasks of a particular file
Extremely long work hours during tax season. Late or overnight work was pretty normal. Some employees didn't sleep a few days and seniors admired them. Adversely, off season was very slow and hard to fill up chargeability hours.
Great Company for all Employee Types
I had the best time working for KPMG, this is one of those places I smiled everyday as I walked through the door. So much opportunity for learning and advancement available.
Points positifsGreat Work Life Balance Culture
Culture is nice and you're workng with great people
I love the company and the people in it. However, there is no work-life balance if you're in an unorganized engagement, so network as much as possible, especially in Tech Assurance.
Big company with room for advancement
The management I had were all good to work with, they were fair and afforded me job life balance. I had the opportunity to work in many different departments
Points positifsjob advancement
Points négatifsPay low
