Hi all,

I have just recived an offer last week for regulation department in kpmg Birmingham as an analyst. Wanted to find out what are the hours of this role, I mean extra hours? Is it quite stressful? Are you expected to stay past 5 30 and come in early? Thanks

Sam

Going the extra mile in any workplace will be appreciated. You're with a very good firm - a firm most people would love to have an offer with... Heading in half an hour early and staying half an hour late (or later if needed/deadlines require etc) will do you more good than bad.

Remember; you get more with sugar than you do with sh!t!

If you want 9-5 hours, go work in a supermarket. If you want a career in the Big 4 - forget about the the hourly time-keeping, balance your own perceptions of what constitutes a good work-life balance (they will chance depending upon your stage of life and career) and go make sure you keep those perceptions.

To answer your specific questions, being in Birmingham in any capacity is stressful - the accent is bloody awful and the Bullring is full of chavs...

You have shattered my perceptions of the Bullring. I used to think the name "gave it away", but apparently, APPARENTLY, there are NO bulls.

Ok Sam,

Lets take a couple of things here.

Its "received", not recived. You will get absolutely slaughtered in the big 4 if you cannot spell properly at all times, no matter how big or small whatever you are working on.

You joined KPMG, a well known MC and you have no clue on hours? No background research? Come on Sam, something called "networking" required here.

Hours will be long, you are hired as a high performing analyst, expected to work long and hard as you want your promotion asap, you are hungry to grow etc etc. If you want a 9-5 with a little bit of extra work here and there only, I suggest you reject the offer and look for something else.

The average UK salary is around £24k a year, while a Senior Consultant earns upwards of £40k+, some up to £70k. If you want normal hours, I know a local shop looking for a helper.

I know the guys here will be harsh, but thats because everyone wants the money but is hoping the hours will be short and the work easy. Doesn't work like that.

However, KPMG has good training and if you are lucky to have a good Partner and a fun programme (ie the KPMG Manager on it is a good guy), you will be fine.
