Flexible but cut throat

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Flexible but can easily get burnt out. If you don’t make yourself known or constantly promote yourself you run the risk of not offered any work. Which is not good for anyone who is introverted by nature.

Amazing place to grow and learn

I have had fantastic years at KPMG. It is an amazing place to grow and learn. The pace and expectations can be challenging but the variety and depth of exposure to client and work is unrivalled.

Competitive salary comes at cost of work-life balance

Great teams and supports.Competitive salary comes at cost of work-life balance.Seeing others people leaving made me feel insecure. But overall good experience.

Old fashioned management

Old fashioned management, worst compensation compared to the market, Current Focus is on outsourcing everything. There are no positives in working here tbh.

what you learned

Na Idade Média havia um hábito curioso entre mercadores: morder a moeda de ouro recebida. O costume, que pode nos parecer estranho era, na verdade, uma forma de confirmar se o ouro era maciço. O metal, mais maleável que outros utilizados na cunha, deixava a marca do dente ao ser mordido. A marca, nesse caso, era a comprovação da qualidade.

Long Hours

Long hours and poor pay. A lot of company politics as well. Management tip toes around clients and accepts unrealistic deadlines, which the team needs to then deal with.

Nice environment

Nice place, good people, some British-dominated racisim but minimal.Bad audit tools, no administrative work.Average pay that you need to negotiate, if you have got power!Workload is high. You can not have rest on annual leave.High staff turnover.


Good people balanced culture.


Long hours. Leadership will support as far as they need you. They will not support, if they do not need you. In otherwords, when the borders are open and they can bring people from overseas, you are just a number that they do not need.

Working five days over four

Tough workplace .. dealing with lots of egos. Stuck it out six months and realise I never want to work for global corporate again. Soul destroying and anxiety inducing.




Long hours, overly high expectations and massive stress

it's a rat race machine

Cookie cutter approach to everything.If you don't agree with a partner your career is over.Collaboration across business is highly promoted in public and highly discouraged in private.

Fun learning with stressful moments

The work life balance is decent. The pay is alright in comparison to the economy. However managers should better understand the situation of staff at certain points


Decent work life balance
