Summer Intern - Audit (Financial Services) (Former Employee) – Hong Kong, HK – December 14, 2018
Joined KPMG in 2015 as an intern in the Audit department. Despite being a paid internship, the major of my time in the company were spent on trainings, which were really helpful and I've learnt a lot through this experience.

Manager, Human Resources (Former Employee) – Central, Hong Kong Island – July 19, 2018
KPMG is a professional firm, I joined after graduation and learnt a lot by working with the professionals there. The partners and HR team holds high standard and that became part of my work ethics in the HR field - which I honestly believe it's one of the most important element in the Human Resources Profession.
Assistant Audit Manager (Former Employee) – Hong Kong – March 13, 2018
KPMG is one of the big-4 firms. It has a lot of big engagement in both Hong Kong and China. You have a lot to learn, but the job is really demanding. Those who are appreciated by boss could have promotion easily and quickly, otherwise, you will be abandoned very quickly. The job is exhausting and working overnight is normal in peak season. The job is only suitable for young men and women who are just out of school who want to try to work in big-4 accounting firm. Some of them will be successful and most of them don't.

A nice workplace and professional personnel. Most hardest part of job was during the peak season. However, there are many departmental functions such as football match, lunch gathering. Besides working, everybody enjoy the work-life balance week which held every year.
Hong Kong - Senior Consultant (Current Employee) – HONG KONG, HK – October 17, 2016
KPMG Advisory is a good place to learn and be exposed to various industries however in the recent years the big projects are all AML related and staff from all departments will be put onto those projects. Also the pay is very low.
Accelerated professional growth, minimal work/life balance
Director, Advisory (Current Employee) – North America – January 8, 2015
While a great firm to work for and opportunity to work with world class clients and projects, the firm is not a good place if you strive for any work/life balance, particularly if you have a family. Within the Advisory business unit, travel will be 90-100% barring rare exceptions. Also, while the firm tries to place resources on projects within their skillset and discipline, it often becomes a situation where whoever is available gets placed on a project. This provides opportunity for broad exposure to many unique business challenges but will also limit one from building on their desired expertise at times.
