    Pros

    I have been working with KPMG India for more than a year in the Indirect Taxation department. Its an amazing organisation to work for. The Indirect Tax service line of KPMG in India is equipped with the best and internationally ranked Senior Partners who inspire all of us to work for the firm with greatest integrity and confidence. In one year, I have learned a lot from my Senior Manager and Partner. A BIG THANK YOU to them for providing me such an exceptional opportunity to work with the firm.
