Great learning opportunity, but very hard work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Pay is competitive for management, but those early in their career will find it challenging to make ends meet if they have to make it on their own.Strenuous workloads for frontline staff in Audit, Tax and Advisory. Support staff experience more work/life balance. Trying to pull in one direction nationally, but organization is often moving separately based on preferences and goals of individual partners. This can make change management very difficult. There is a national approach to recruitment, but everyone is responsible for pleasing their own unique group of hiring managers, which leads to everyone going off and doing their own thing.Recruiters will have a difficult time pitching low pay and long hours with mediocre benefits. It can also be difficult to really describe the greater good the the organization provides to society. If candidates are just looking for a steady pay cheque and career development, then they will be a good fit.The organization does seem to be heading in the right direction, adapting to latest technology and trends.

Pros

Learning opportunities, job security

Cons

Low company-wide cohesion

Busy, competing demands

Work is life at KPMG. There is no balance unless you enforce it, which is often received negatively. I did not have the technology to complete the work expected, and when raised (positively or negatively), concerns we rarely addressed

Pros

Bonuses at certain levels, challenging work

Cons

Long hours, high expectations, little guidance

Excellent work place

KPMG is an extremely fast-growing company and a wonderful place to work! The culture at the firm is the best I’ve ever worked for and everyone is authentic and loves what they do. Training processes are great and really help people to feel comfortable in each position. The managers are always willing to help and will take time out of their day to dedicate to helping you if needed. The management team really seems to care about their employees. You may have to work late/from home sometimes when the company needs you to, but that is balanced with the ability to work from home when YOU need to; its a fair trade.

Pros

Professional development

Cons

Less pay

Worst law firm I have ever worked at

I was hired to work at this company for the global mobility team and let me just say it was the worst experience I have ever had. Having worked in the legal industry for over 5 years, this specific team had the most toxic environment wherein the managers were rude and condescending. There was no teamwork as the managers always had the final word and to make matters worse, they always made you feel incompetent. This behaviour is tolerated by upper management as other people have complained about these managers. The benefits are great but the salary was not enough for the amount of stress and sleepless nights I had to endure. Job security is non-existent in this place as there is no training plan in place and you were expected by your manager to find work for yourself during your first few months at the job. If you didnt find work or you weren't doing anything at no fault of your own because your manager failed to give you work, you were questionned as to why you should get paid your hours even when you weren't billing per hour for the work done for the department. You are always walking on eggshells as you dont know if and when any of your managers are having a bad day and just want to snap at you for no reason. There is also no organization in this team. They also wont pay for any licensing fees like RCIC, paralegal, and anything associated with those. To anyone who joins this team, stay as far away as possible!

Pros

Work from home, benefits were great

Cons

Managers were rude and condescending and this was tolerated by upper management

Demanding work place with growth and learning opportunities

- Good place to start a career, exposure to various projects and industries. - Plenty of growth opportunities until senior manager, if you work hard and deliver quality work. - Management style will be dependent on group / project team, could be frustrating.- Turnover is high, which will at to the workload from time to time.

Pros

Exposure to a broad range of industries, interesting projects if you are eager to find

Cons

Long hours, quick turnaround, be available on-demand

Terrible and corrupt company

I worked here for one year and not a day longer. The senior leaders at this company are more interested in their self-serving desires than actually being leaders for the company. The culture is dog-eat-dog and they treat their employees terribly. I’ve worked for their competitor as well and honestly, the whole industry is really shady. If you decide to work here, take it for what it is, get some experience and get out. The more senior you get the more you’ll be exposed to the lack of integrity and morally corrupt values.

Pros

Good salary, decent benefits

Cons

Terrible leadership, self serving people, they think they’re smarter than they are

Environnement Stressant

Les associés ne sont pas à la hauteur de leurs responsabilités. Ils endossent leurs erreurs à leurs subordonnés. Conflits permanents entre associés et employés. Une ambiance d'hypocrisie et de commérages parmi les employés d'une part et d'harcèlement psychique par les directeurs d'autre part. Département RH ne sert à rien qu'élaborer des slogans contre l'intimidation et la violence. Foutaises !! Rien ne s'applique.

Pros

Cafés gratuits, Fruits

Cons

Stress, intimidation, ragots, etc.

Horrible culture and company

Horrible people: no one takes responsibility for their own work and when they roll off an engagement expect others to finish up their mess, most managers are too busy to answer question, let alone respond to a simple email/skype message, a lot of favoritism as sucking up to managers/partners is part of the job Long hours: Engagement that booked for 1 week tends to take 2-3 x the time to finish Low Pay: salaries are ridicously low, especially factoring in the hours Employees are dispensable, During April 2020, KPMG laid off hundreds of employees across Canada for all service lines in such a difficult time and acted nothing has happened.

Not fun to work at super stressful and tight deadlines

Very competitive, stressful and pressure driven environment where employees put in long hours and are expected to put work before anything else. No work life balance at all.

Cons

Long Hours, Non- supportive management
