Fast paced

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It can be fast paced company but it can be rewarding. The work at times can be tough but it was also where I had learnt the most. Go in with an open mind.

Data Scientist at KPMG

work for various industry never get dull , there is no pay distinction between tech and non-tech resulting in huge disparity compared to market. Best colleagues I had, very supportive and fun to work with. No politics at all

Pros

Welfare package, health insurance

Cons

low bonus, low pay
Was this review helpful?

Fast paced but lacking direction

Upper management have no real direction. They were dishonest about the financial state of the company. They could not decide what departments should be focused on, and the tough decisions they made only served to drive employees away.

Dependant on engagement and seniors/managers/partners. standard audit progression.

Like all audit firms, its fast-paced with deadlines to meet. Nothing much to say as most should know what they are getting into in audit. Has decent measures to try and incorporate wlb in KPMG

Cons

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

Opportunity to work with different teammates, often young and same age group.

Good firm to build up experience in the audit and accounting profession. Expect little to no work life balance for any of the Big4 firms. Yearly progression and competitive pay.

Pros

OT meal claims, great experience building

Cons

Long hours, lack of work life balance

Typical big4

Work extremely long hours. Luck of the draw whether you get a good team or manager. Some managers and bosses are very unappreciative of your work. Ratings are also not fair as it depends on the project assigned to you

Pros

Great colleagues

Cons

Long hours

Cons

OT a lot with low pay

Toxic culture dominated by Indians and aussies (with infighting amongst them)

Toxic culture - small groups that fight against each other (and amongst themselves). Need to lick axx of / drink heavily with partners and directors at parties for career advancement. And employees pay for their own computer screens.Mediocre work quality.Office has not been renovate since 1970s.Basically all about profits for the partners

underpaid overworked

Audit function (year 2020):you know the meme that 'if you do a good job, you get to do other people's job too'? yup. thats KPMG; incompetence gets rewarded. hardworking competent individuals suffer with heavy workload and are slowly decreasing in numbers due to this reason (all are leaving the firm)KPMG SG is slowly being overtaken by mid joiners from different firms and malaysia, with these experienced hires bringing in their 'face time' culture (where online = hardworking), without getting anything done. These mid-joiners are diluting the friendly culture KPMG once had.you will have to protect yourself a lot, as there are a lot of finger pointing when anything goes wrong. there is no clear line on what your job scope is, reiterating again that if you show a bit of competence, you basically just do everything.despite audit being essential, partners are cutting our pay in the form of deferred promotion. there is no clear direction of what their response given the covid-19 pandemic. partners themselves say that the audit function is doing well, but then conveniently said that they are not 'meeting targets' when deciding to defer promotion.

Pros

nothing

Cons

long hours, underpaid, overworked, unappreciative

Review

Overall company pay package is based on market benchmark. They do have activities for staff after work to relax themselves. Their culture is open-minded.

Nice place to work

It was an excellent experience working under KPMG. My seniors are very helpful they thought so many things to me from them I learned a lot from them. There was a very beautiful lunch area with a snooker table and a PS4 game to chill. Every 1-3 Monday 1$ beer I never forgot :) haha, nice place to work.

Pros

Atmostfare, Team mates, Environment

Cons

Working Stress

Poor employment practises. Avoid!

Poor off-boarding processes where bosses ask you to leave early from notice period to save money. Poor promotion prospects in the year. No business in the company. Bonuses delayed. Hired employees asked to delay employment. Boring dinosaur slow company in adopting technology. Slow internet processes. No one wants to decide.

Pros

Leave can accumulate but can't use

Cons

Poor pay compared to other roles outside. No appreciation of staff

Competitive environment

KPMG Singapore has a competitive environment. It assists in growth but at the same time could be overwhelming to some. The firm does not focus on industry specialization as well

Good advancement

Good place to advance in your career, it is easy to get a promotion every year. You would be in a good place to succeed if you are able to take stress and long working hours.

Good pay but bad leadership

- The pay scale, staff benefit and physical office environment are above average. - The working culture is less ideal. - The leaders often demonstrate inconsistencies in providing direction to the team and their actions don’t match their words. They are driven by ego.

Good place to improve accounting and auditing knowledge

Overall, working in KPMG is good. While I highly valued my time at my previous company, there are no longer opportunities for growth that align with my career goals.
