Joining as a fresh graduate, training will be provided and accounting foundation will be built throughout engagements. Generally pleasant colleagues to work with. Expect late nights and deadline, as usual in the audit industry.
Build audit and accounting foundation
Long hours and stressful
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
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.
long hours, underpaid, overworked, unappreciative
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.
Atmostfare, Team mates, Environment
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.
Leave can accumulate but can't use
Poor pay compared to other roles outside. No appreciation of staff
Great and smart people around you to work with. There are plenty of opportunities to learn new skills especially for a fresh graduate. Good working environment and good management.
Learn lots of things, well taken care of
Work life balance
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at KPMG?
- 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.
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.
Progressing from associate to senior associate to assistant manager to a manager, each year brings about new challenges within the audit function, and also brings about more flexibility, albeit increasing amount of stress.
