Hi all,

I joined @kpmg few months back as an Associate Consultant. When I joined, I had 3 yoe. I have good understanding of domain but I feel that I need a little guidance when dealing with a project for the first time.

Here I feel that the manager need people who already know everything.
I am good and can be better but I am not getting work here.

No learning now.

Can anyone suggest me if it is common?

What should I do?

Any inputs will be helpful.

I was expecting that I'll be onboarded to a project.
Proper kt sessions would be there.

Afterwards, I can catch up with the work and perform fairly

But, here no system is there.

Leads come to you with random works and expect you can do those in no time.

Is it normal or is it happening with me only?

Also, how to deal with this?
Please suggest


I can understand it. I am working as a Asst Manager and I know a bit how the system works in KPMG.

Generally, when a new recruite joins the team, Managers will ask us to take them as shadow resource in the project we are currently working. Assign small tasks so you would get a understanding on how the system works. But as you said , there won't be any kt sessions as such since no one has bandwidth to that. So self learning is the key here.

So what you can do is , when you got assigned to any tasks , try to communicate more and show interest that you are willing to learn. Ask for sandbox / demo instances where you can practice the configuration , get more comfortable with the platform. When somei comes up your way , do some homework on that and go back with your own findings , this will show that you are interested and willing to learn, so that leads will spend more time with you and show you how the real time project works.

Hope this helps.



I think it depends on project…i joined few mnth back and i was allocated with a person to help me learn about project
What location are u in?

Base location is Pune.
But, I've not been called there yet as wfh is going on.

Hi. I can help you out. Are you in KGS OR KI?

Sent you dm

If it's KGS be assured you will never receive KT. Infact In my 6 years of work experience, I have made 4 switches and never have I received or seen anyone give proper KT to anyone. Atleast in service based companies. It's a dog eat dog world. In KGS I asked for guidance because I was hired for a very new technology on which I didn't have a lot of experience and my Assistant manager scolded me saying then why did you join KGS if you don't have experience:(
So best thing is, as you get older in the system try to make friends with seniors who are helpful and learn from them else do certifications and upskilling on weekends.

I feel like I am so inexperienced in my job that everything takes so long to complete and get used to. Hence, I constantly feel guilty that I am spending a lot of time on my tasks and I am not adding enough value especially given the cost that clients pay for our time. I also fear that most of my time will get written off at the end of the day by the matter managers. Is this feeling normal and does it go away?
