    Current Employee - Auditor in Leeds, England

    I have been working at KPMG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Constant progression if you want it
    Great support through ACA qualification
    Great team of motivated people
    Support available when you feel overworked
    Good expenses policy

    Cons

    Can be very challenging to keep on top of work
    Lots of driving. Little to no control over where you need to work
    Difficult to have commitments outside of work due to length of working days and need to work/study on the weekend
    The matrix team structure means jobs constantly overlap. Can be challenging to manage your time.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more time on each audit

    I worked at KPMG full-time

    Pros

    Good opportunity to network with people. The company also provides free lunch to staff members. The people are also very friendly and patient

    Cons

    The internship programme does not have any structure. You are left to do whatever work that your colleagues leave you to do. The initial stages can often be overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    I would advice management to put structures in place to ensure that the performance of interns is evaluated in a fair and objective manner.
