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

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 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.

- 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.

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.

I worked with many great people but many leave after a few years. Projects can be hit or miss but the good ones really helped me learn a lot and take on bigger responsibilities. Overall, a decent place to start a career.

Salary and benefits should be increased to compensate the employee's efforts as all employees really put on a lot of time and efforts to complete all the projects.

It was fun and exciting working there. Majority of the secretaries were helpful & fun to work with. Have learned quite a lot from there.

The auditors were friendly as well. Due to further advancement, have to leave the job. Anyway, still enjoy frontline jobs till now. Love meeting people and learn new stuff if possible.


Last but not least, KPMG is a great place to work in.

Job Culture
Workplace culture:
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.


Overall:

Great stepping stone for fresh grads. If you're not into auditing, don't stay too long.
Pros
Many learning opportunities
Cons
Very long hours

I was from the Corporate Tax Planning and Compliance department, where I worked for approx 4 years.

Management is entrenched and blissfully unaware of sentiment on the ground. They favour staff who go out of their way to bootlick, and overlook how these staff will push their actual work to other staff members who are already overworked and under-appreciated. The key issue with the management is that the few who are aware of the extremely toxic culture do not make any attempt to stop it.


Staff are divided into two camps - the bootlickers and the non-bootlickers. The former group will go out of their way to curry favour with management, and as a result have a lot of influence during day to day work and the appraisal process. The latter group will be dumped with significantly more work, yet get rated poorly by the management simply because they do not try to suck up.


Staff turnover has been overwhelming high in the past three years. More than half the department is new. Experienced staff leave simply because their hard work (working ot past midnight almost everyday and being expected to come back to office on weekends) is not appreciated, and the toxic culture makes it unbearable. This is not the place for you unless you can withstand being manipulative, throwing your friends under the bus, and forsaking your morals for the sake of your career.
Pros
Wide exposure
Cons
Toxic culture, vicious cliques in the office, indifferent management
