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

Culture: People are generally nice and collaborative. Work life balance is generally observed.
Work: Work can get boring after sometime given the advisory nature. Sometimes management push for projects that expand the team capabilities but generally very hard to deliver

Being an external auditor is like having an examination each and everyday. There are always audit and technical related issues to be resolve between engagement team and clients. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you have successfully resolved an issue and there is appreciation from your superiors which makes you proud of yourself. The most hardest part of the job includes long working hours and also never ending deadlines to be met.
Pros
Problems solving
Cons
Long hours

KPMG Singapore feels pretty much like a university. As a graduate or someone in the mid 20/30s, it is easy to find friends/Colleagues of the same age group, there are tonnes of fun activities like welcome night, dinner and dance, monday drinks and even sports day organised yearly.

Best part of this job is the people, but of course as with every company there will be issues in retaining talent.


One thing KPMG Singapore lacks is the grooming of employees who have been with them since day 1 (first job). At a certain level, the management becomes a little more selfish and forgets that the employees come first.


Nonetheless, still enjoyed my time there.
Pros
Tonnes of parties and fun
Cons
Poor employee management of career

Generally, working in audit is pretty stressful given the long hours and multiple engagements ongoing at the same time. This definitely improves the individual's project management. Most of the time, in every audit engagement, it consists of a team of members from various ranks. Working as the team lead will helps to improve people management skills according to each of the member's ability.

In audit environment, most of the time employees are having tough time coping with multiple engagements and have to go through long working hours to meet the deadline.
Pros
Staff benefits and rewards
Cons
Long hours

KPMG is a great place to work because of all the talent, dedication and passion we see in every employee. I'm part of the IT enabled transformation team focusing on providing value to client through business process reviews, internal controls reviews, system evaluation and implementation. The trust that our client entrusts us is what drives us to strive even better.

KPMG provides a very good learning environment. The learning and development department provides trainings during non-peak periods and most managers are willing to impart their knowledge to the younger ones.

When on engagements, soft skills like management and communication skills are needed for project management and client management. Even within the engagement team, the senior has to manage the manager's expectation and at the same time, manage his associates so that the audit will run smoothly.


Although it is a good learning environment, turnover is high due to the long hours during the peak period. However, the best part of the job is also to meet new people and interact with them.
Pros
Able to meet many people, good learning environment
Cons
Long hours, high tunover
