            Neutral Outlook
            No Opinion of CEO

            I have been working at KPMG full-time for less than a year

            Pros

            In my first year at KPMG I have started to build a network and get to know a lot of people within the industry and work with a lot of big clients. Subsidised lunch allowance (although canteen is very expensive) I have also been able to travel a bit with work such as to London or Manchester which can be a good break from the usual routine. Flexible benefits such as company car.

            Cons

            As I am a fairly junior employee, a lot of the work is tedious and boring - especially if you are in audit. As you progress in the company your working hours can increase. Middle management who sit centrally do not best cater for the needs of apprentices around the country and you feel like you are not of much value to the firm.
