AARC department poor management and culture
Engagement Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Sydney Central Business District NSW16 November 2018
Duties of the role don't match to described in the advertisement.
Management is poor, arrogant and not supportive- not approachable always block you from questions by telling you to ”refer to the manual.”
Poor training - basically no real training as in how to do the task, not given a clear flow of the process of doing the task.
The culture based on favouritism, and there are bullying and racism seen in the company.
Micromanage to staff.
No staff recognition of job well done, humiliate staff when making small mistakes.
Overall, very disappointed after joining the company, as I thought with its business sector ”professional services” that people there should be as professional but not at all!
Pros
Good office view.
Cons
Pressure, bad culture, no career growth, bullying and not treating staff fairly.

Very Flexible work environment
Operations Assistant (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW11 January 2017
KPMG has a very high reputation in the world. Sydney office has recently adapted Agile work environment where no one has their own desk (choose your desk on the floor everyday). Very flexible work environment with lovely staff, my typical day at work goes with troubleshooting all the issues and fulfilling all needs of around 240 employees of Sydney Audit & Financial services department of the firm.
I have learned lot of Admin tasks including spreading out weekly basis reports, announcing for good news or social activity meetings, troubleshooting timesheets related issues, allocating lockers, looking after stationary, collecting new employees and introducing them to the staff etc. I have also improved my organisational skills.
All departments' management are so accurate, rapid fast and understandable, co-workers are so supportive and always willing to help.
There was no such a hardest part of the job.
I believe all social events occur within the firm would be the most enjoyable part of the job in which you get the chance being social and friendly with your co-workers. And of course the company provides you the freedom and flexibility.
