Engagement Coordinator (Former Employee) – Sydney Central Business District NSW – 16 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!
Good office view.
Pressure, bad culture, no career growth, bullying and not treating staff fairly.
Sales (Former Employee) – Malmö kommun – 20 September 2018
During my 10 weeks as an intern at one of the world largest tax and accounting companies I generated successfully new leads for the company. I showed a good ability to work with the full Microsoft Office Suite by giving sales presentations; creating client lists and I had daily email communications with clients and senior management.

Young and hard-working team. Challenging environment where there is ability to extend and develop skills, particularly on the communication and leadership front. There is a lot of competition amongst peers.

- Supportive co-workers below manager level. - Pays for CA. - Yearly promotion. - Good for university graduates who have no other work experience and want a 3-year crash course on the corporate struggle. - Variety of clients and industries to work with. - Opportunity to manage fairly quickly.
Cons - Low-quality training. - Horrible hours and worse pay. - Majority of managers are poor at project management and worse at leadership. - Division starts to notice you only after you have your CA and get job offers outside the firm. - Strong culture of playing internal politics and favoritism. - High employee turnover gets demoralizing.

Consultant (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 14 March 2017
great working with nice team, however no one is genuine to help you and everyone has their own agenda. Poor management, make you work long hours and weekends and you are underappreciated for the hard work you do
Operations Assistant (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 11 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.
