Pros & Cons
Excellent training provided.
Great experience working with a wide variety of large corporate clients
Regular client contact, lots of autonomy and responsibility, working amongst a talented team, variety of audits means every day is different
Variety of work and great team. Always being challenged to jump in the deep end and learn as I go (can go well :P)
The training provided is first class, the people you work with are inspirational, the friends you make are lifelong and the clients you work with and experiences you have are exceptional and are of unrivalled quality.
Occasional long hours.
Busy season is about to begin and that will mean working greater hours than is normally appropriate.
Reward and recognition, few inter-division networking opportunities
tedious tasks and sometimes long hours
Being expected to do very long hours at occasion.
What Insiders Say
I have been told that the move to senior is a couple of year process and the easiest of the transitions. Beyond that, the city would require that position to be filled before moving any further.
KPMG has a strong emphasis on giving back to the community and the Adelaide firm in particular has done a lot of work to recognize the indigenous community. There are also volunteer days where you are able to take a day off to go and help out at an organisation or project of your choice or one that they organise.
