4. How well organised/structured is your programme?

1/10

Not very organised at all!! expect much better from such a big firm

5. How much support do you receive from your employer?

2/10

not much, very limited. Some managers are nice but they offer support off their own backs, KPMG do very little in way of support.

6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?

5/10

A small amount. We are given days off to study but this is not very often at all

7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?

2/10

not much at all, nothing is related to what we do on a day-to-day basis

8. Are there extra-curricular activities to get involved in at your work? (For example, any social activities, sports teams, or even professional networking events.)

2/10

Not many that I have been made aware of.

9a. Would you recommend KPMG to a friend?

No

9b. Why?

They sold the programme as a rotational position, meaning you could move around the business to experience lots of different sectors, but this is really not the case. Almost everyone has to do audit. Misinformation and incorrect advertising

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to KPMG?

make sure you are aware that you will have to do audit for your 6 years.
