    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at KPMG as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Very useful experience as one actually performs some of the responsibilities of a Junior Audit Assistant
    - Networking opportunities with CEOs, CFOs, directors etc. of different companies
    - Excellent experience for someone who wants a long-term career in audit/accounting

    Cons

    - Long working hours with NO overtime pay
    - Low overall salary considering the long working time, competition, and pay for similar positions at other companies
    - Restricted to take the ACCA exam levels by employment contract
    - Most non-internationally educated managers are narrow minded and unwilling to help
    - Non-existent opportunities for temporary international experience (exchange) with KPMG firms based in other countries
    - One has to learn most things on his/her own since supervisors are busy most of the time
    - Hard/almost impossible to switch audit groups (no internal mobility) and thus, to learn to what industry one is most suited

    Advice to Management

    - Resolve some of the issues mentioned above in order to make the working environment more satisfying
    - Change the culture “If you are not satisfied with wage/conditions, you can leave. We can always find someone else.” You are losing too many high quality and experienced employees each year…

    Pros

    Provides the opportunity to challenge yourself, work with great people, and manage your personal and professional life.

    Cons

    Like every other employer in the current economic environment, has had to do more with less.
