Pros

Globally recognised firm with generally good people who are keen to get the right work/ life balance. in my experience the firm is flexible to people's lives, but of course will want their pound of flesh at times- though this is rewarded with the autonomy to have downtime when things are quieter. Career progression is largely in your own hands- people will help you if you put your hand up and shout about what you want. benefits are reasonable but definitely not the best out there.

Cons

Internal politics can be frustrating, and partnership can be a bit of an old boys network in places. Promotions are a combination of hard work, good luck and timing, and as they only happen yearly it can feel like it takes time to progress. Performance Management and reward system is not overly transparent.

Advice to Management

Be more honest with employees and greater consistency with performance management.

    Pros

    - Variety of experience: KPMG audits a lot of mid-sized companies in Hungary. You have a good chance to visit different companies every week and learn about a lot of industries - Paid overtime: the salary is not the best but if you work hard (you will in busy season), you will be paid for the plus hours (1,5x rate and 2x rate in the evenings & weekends) - Good career opportunities after 2-3 years - Free ACCA & other trainings

    Cons

    - Too much work, especially between Jan-April - Corporate culture is not the best, continuous backstabbing and gossiping everywhere - Boring after a couple of years - The salary is not particularly bad, but you can make more elsewhere with less work

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, the audit factory is well constructed. Not for the employees, but for managers & partners.
