Senior Audit Associate

Working at KPMG I learned a lot but I’m not sure I always felt set up for success. Managers are quick to blame staff for their decision to under allocate resources to jobs. Keep the Partners Money Growing.

Pros

CPA Bonus, PTO if you can take it

Cons

Busy season, cliques

Overall, great place to start career

I have no complaints over starting my career at KPMG. I lasted three years until a senior auditor and left to pursue internal audit knowing the skills I took with me would be valuable.

Pros

People, experience, perks

Long hours, high stress

Great people, great learning experience, terrible hours

The people who work at KPMG are great to work for and with, the work itself is typical audit work for large clients. You learn a lot but are underpaid and overworked.

Challenging and Competitive Environment

A day at KPMG begins with few initial trackers completed for admin stuff related to my team members to understand staff's availability. Post which completing our own allocated work and communicating effectively with onshore colleague and challenging them as and when required in terms of procedures being performed. I was able to apply accounting knowledge accumulated through ACCA at my regular day of job such as IFRS 9, 15 and 16. Management is always understanding of the issues that staff might be dealing with and are co-operating. Best thing about the job were the social activities in place to bring the entire team together which helps us to work in a more efective and efficient manner.

Productive and competitive workplace

Upon gaining my CPA designation, I gained valuable public accounting experience in assurance. I learned to apply the technical concepts from ASPE and conducted notice-to-reader and review engagements.

The exposure and experience is great for those ready to learn

You will be involved in planning and executing statutory audit engagements. There is tons of contents to learn aside the busy schedule and tight deadlines. It's a learning environment.

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.

First work experience

KPMG was my first employer. Interesting areas of work, but very stressful and a lot of work. Salary is average, if any. Highly recommended as a job entry.

Good Place to start career

KPMG is a very good.place to start your career. Everyday is an opportunity to learn something- both soft skills and technical knowledge. You are given lots of responsibilities even after just 2 years at the firm. You have the privilege of exploring several companies .You have the opportunity to meet CEOs, MDs, CFOs you probably only hear of in the news. It coul be stressful but its worth it.

Job Security/Advancement is good

A typical day as a senior analyst is related to performing audit procedures to obtain sufficient and appropriate audit evidence on management assertions on the various financial statement balances. In addition to those, I also worked on statutory audits and advisory services under both of PRC GAAP and IFRS, follow up with internal/external department ensure financial documentation prepared/completed is accurate and properly is crucial as well. I believe this work ethic and experience at KPMG would lay a solid foundation for becoming a business professional in the future.
