Although I only worked there for almost two months, the large loads of work that I need to do is still like the thing happened yesterday. However, what is a relief is that all the colleagues are very nice. They always stay at your back and help you out of some troubles. To summarize, it is really a meaningful but challenging place for interns.
Very hierarchical, fast-paced, high competitive working environment. Tough culture. Don't fall for what they said on the website. 80% turnover rate for the first 2-3 years. Unfair performance evaluation system, based on who is close with managers.
As my first internship, the work at KPMG brought a lot to me. First, I enhanced my communication skills and gained massive professional knowledge by attending real discussions on client issues and tax policies. Second, my colleagues were friendly and willing to teach me how to use a variety of sought-after business analytics tools. Furthermore, I was asked to lead the Social Responsibility Team to local middle schools and film bases so as to publicize KPMG's engagement in social work.
Increased knowledge and experience
Not quite long internship period
Doing research on and analyzing local and international tax laws and policies are main duties for a tax consultant. Almost four years of the Tax Consultant role both in Deloitte and KPMG focused on data analysis and international law research has developed strong problem-solving, technology and interpersonal skills.Team work, effective cooperation skills and being a good leader are also three important qualities I have learnt during this period. The hardest part of being a great tax consultant is to quickly catch up with and deeply analyze updatest information in financial and political markets, but it is always enjoyable when doing analysis of these different information with great team members.
