SENIOR ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON7 January 2019
This is a very oppressive company that doesn't care about it's employees. The workplace culture lends itself to gossip and backstabbing. Staff are unhappy in their positions unless at the Partner level and even at this level there is a lot of turnover. The hardest part of the job is going in and smiling when you are overworked, mentally bullied and treated like you don't matter. Corporate environments lend themselves to this type of identity because they have become so focused on making money and forgotten about the little guy.

My time although short, was a wonderful experience. I was trained well and always treated with dignity and respect. The culture there was top notch, I would recommend working or applying there to anyone.

A great training ground, a permanent career will only appeal to some
Senior Manager, Audit (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB10 December 2018
There is no better place to begin your professional accounting/finance career than KPMG. The training ground they offer is robust and you are surrounded by high-quality individuals. However, a lifelong career at KPMG will require the right individual. Consulting-style careers are not for everyone, they require long hours and a need to be detached from your project, but learning how to operate this early on is a great introduction to the professional world.

Fun place to work..partners are cool..admin management sucks!
Partner Assistant (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC4 December 2018
Partners are cool until you get replaced and then they dont even say hi to you. Always focus on the negative and dont encourage you at all.
KPMG says it offers flexible working arrangements and leaves of absence to pursue interests schooling and hobbies but when I inquired about this for a course for 10 months it was denied left right and centre. It seems as though all rules apply to everyone BUT the admins. Why? People work from home admins can't...why? I've seen admins come and go in the last year I've been here and I can understand why they leave and some stay and are miserable. Pay is low, training is minimal and you are expected to know everything by the 3rd day which is absolutely ridiculous and not realistic (IBS needs at least 6 months with proper training to fully understand)
In the end you'll never be recognized as hard as you work. You're just a number and just as expendable as the money they use to go out and eat and wipe their butts with.
Pros
Teams are cool
Cons
Admin performance managers suck, rules only apply to everyone but the admins

Professional, lots of opportunity for progression
Senior Technical Writer - Contract (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 November 2018
IT Enterprise Operations is a great bunch to work with and the SMEs have a great deal of expertise. Management was very supportive and expected a lot from you. If you delivered you were rewarded with progressively more challenging opportunities. Was a contract that did not get renewed due to budgetary constraints based on Partner direction
Pros
Opportunities to progress
Cons
no job security

Management doesnt care much
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Vancouver8 October 2018
I can only speak from an admin and reception perspective, as I've had both jobs at KPMG. Be ready to be taken for granted at every turn. Usually the Partners you work with are great and you can build a great relationship with your team. However, head admins and admin management says they are on your side but never are. They will not fight for you. They will not give you fair living raises or wages. They will throw a ton of parties instead. That's where your living wage goes. Not to mention support staff gets zero thank yous ever. Unless you count a generic card on Admin Day.
Pros
Good work/life balance
Cons
Poor management and atrocious wages

Audit Services (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 October 2018
Great organization, good networking opportunities, and lots of social events and work perks. KPMG does a good job of staying ahead of innovation. The work culture is what drove me away. It's a very cut-throat and political.

Rapid promotions, poor work/life balance
Audit Manager (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB2 October 2018
You get a prestigious name on your resume, you gain a lot of knowledge, and you can get promoted every 2 years if you're good (for the first 6 years or so anyway). The downsides are that the hours are terrible, the pay is really low for how hard you work, and your bosses don't really care about your wellbeing, they just care about how much money you're making them.
Pros
Career growth, professional development
Cons
Long hours, low pay
