Indeed Featured review

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

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.

KPMG Workplace

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

Fast paced, Modern management style

My typical day at KPMG will always start off from client and partner management to reviewing of audit work papers in accordance to audit strategies, planning and procedures previously agreed and signed off with engagement partner. This includes handling any queries raised by the team and solving any issues on hand and to update the status report of audit. The enjoyable part will be to discover important management point or to help identify any potential control failures as these are value adding to the client and increase the quality of audit work. This includes summarising all the management points and to raise discussions with the CFO before arranging with Managing director or Audit committee together with our engagement manager and partner. The hardest part will be to gather all necessary audit evidences to support any case of management point. This is tedious but fruitful as the process of investigation allows for deeper understanding of the area of weak controls and increases the value of audit work. It also opens up potential business opportunities with the client (i.e. Corporate group tax services , transfer pricing etc) What i have learnt is a deeper understanding of the financial health of different companies, their risk management system and a greater exposure on the application of many key accounting standards (ie. Business combination, Financial instruments, Leasing, Investment properties etc)

Pros

Strong training materials and expert knowledge support

Cons

Long hours
