Learnt a lot of Excel, stakeholder management and different cultures. The environment is strict, and the pace is highly fast and stressful. I did enjoy the people and I think that the leadership style could be less hierachial.

It's not a bad place to work and having KPMG on my CV looks great, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The pay and benefits are surprisingly poor and the culture is stifling.

As i worked in Agile project , my day used to start with stand up meetings with UAT team followed by Development team so as to mark up the daily progress on the system development.
I leaned to coordinate, plan and negotiation with development and stakeholders to bring efficiency in the process.

My internship lasted ten weeks and was in the personal insolvency department. The department was small so I got the opportunity to work closely with my supervisor and manager and it was a great environment for learning. My day-to-day responsibilities included corresponding with client creditors, meeting with clients, processing paperwork and drafting reports. Irecommend

Good experience, but lot can be improved. The higher management boss around to show their power. Deadlines are strict and unreasonable and if you cannot complete your task within these deadlines, you will be thrown under the bus.
Pros
Meet different people
Cons
Long Hours

Dealing in load sales for a bank so going through all bank systems and contracts. Alot to learn at the start but it does get easier. Deadlines are weeks in advance but pressure can be on due to getting access to certain needed information and rechecking to make sure all information is the most up to date and correct.
Quite workplace but all decent and helpful staff.

Management can be a little over baring as each case you deal with can be different size and complexity but it does all work out at the end.


In this position as we are off site we do not follow suit with main office KPMG and do not avail of everything that they do like finishing 3:30 on fridays during July and August and only some times on bank holidays even though we are contracked to on the bank holidays.

Prepare for a hierarchical corporate culture.
It is difficult to find a work life balance if you are on client site. Make sure you ask your interviewer about overtime culture

I enjoy the work at KPMG. But not the people. They do not treat their admin staff with respect. I feel they belive that admin staff can be very easily recruited so therefore almost disposable.
I have worked here for 12 years. Some of the people are very nice. But not once they are promoted to managers and higher levels.

They can be quite rude to deal with on a daily basis. They do not focus on the good for the most part.
Pros
good nights out
Cons
rude staff

Thoroughly enjoyed my time with KPMG in Dublin and will be returned for a graduate programme in September 2018.
Worked alongside a team whom dealt with Aircraft leasing clients, tasks were challenging at the beginning, but soon felt confident to solely tackle different elements of the audits.

Working with people my own age and in similar situations provided relief from what was overall a pressured and stressful environment.
Work-life balance or staff well-being is not a high priority in this company.

I was lucky to have some positive experiences with my own bosses but I was ill due to stress frequently.
Pros
Bonuses
Cons
Long hours, bad management, stressful

I was there for a short time but work I partook in was very interesting and fulfilling. People in the office were very friendly and willing to help out. Would recommend to someone who is looking for a job within the accountancy industry.
