If you make it into the favourites - great. If not - good luck!
Inclusive and supportive culture IF you make it to the favourites in a team. If you align yourself strategically with influential leaders, they will treat you well, help you advance, you’ll get the best projects and your colleagues and superiors will support you. You’ll be well liked and get promoted early/easily.
This is particularly the case if you started out as a Graduate, and rose up the ranks.
On the other hand –
IF you are an experienced hire, and you do not manage to align yourself to powerful leaders in your team quickly….
You won’t get good projects. You won’t get coached properly. You won’t be up for promotion any time soon. You won’t be supported throughout promotion process. You won’t know why the things happening to you are happening because it’ll all be disguised.
If you are no good at office politics, and if you’re not able to foster strategic relationships with seniors asap (unfortunately required at KPMG because favouritism is rife) – good luck in your career with KPMG – because you’re going to need it!
Monotonous work but great people
Work is often monotonous, long and repetitive. The team however is great. It is easy to get stuck into a particular type of work and difficult to find experience in other projects
Learning and Development great
You have a great opportunity to learn and upskill! People are fantastic! However promotions are very few and far between and the opportunity to be promoted is low!
You will face worse politics and not supportive leadership. There is no vision for senior members in the team. If you want to do good with you career it is not good place esp for experienced professionals.
Good career start
Great place to start a career but doesn’t lend itself to any sense of dynamism or excitement. Rules only seem to apply to specific people or teams in the company – quite political.
