IT Advisory Manager (Former Employee) –  Sydney, Australia17 September 2013
All my corporate experience comes from KPMG. I learned technical skills from project management, risk management, IT audit, process improvement, client and stakeholder management. I also learned soft skills including people management, coaching and mentoring staff, time management, prioritisation, working with different cultures and geographical locations.

Management were supportive and rewarded hard work.
Co workers were intelligent and collegial.

I enjoyed the travel and team atmosphere.
The hardest part was the long hours and competitiveness of peers.
Pros
Great team, good variety of clients, opportunity for travel
Cons
Long hours

Technology ServicesAdministration Assistant (Former Employee) –  Melbourne, Australia3 September 2015
The company atmosphere was great with the attitude of the management staff being encouraging and uplifting. A lot of the people had a good sense of self worth. Efforts were made to "improve" the work life balance of each employee. The company encouraged intelligence and individuality. Overall, I was Please with things and a lot of things was put into perspective. Great company to work for.

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.

Reasonable remuneration with many opportunities for further professional development for driven individuals.
