Pros

Great Culture, people that work there are friendly and really helpful. There a group team feeling there.

Cons

Hours are long and way outside of the agreed contract hours. You will work late in the office and you will not be paid for it. The reason is poor allocation of the required hours to do the job. Also pay is not very good and do not expect it to rise very much over time. Work there for like an 3 years and you will see like a 30% pay rise. However, partners get paid huge amounts, way above the rest of us. Most people come to get their professional qualifications and then leave.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay everyone better below partner level

    Pros

    International recognition
    Strong fundamentals
    Good senior management
    Excellent training course
    Career advancement

    Cons

    Underpaid
    Different judgement and approach towards grey area of work
    Conservative and strictly think in the box
    Put too much responsibility on new joiners by let them handling the engagement. Remember this is a risk-based approach, not a revenue-based approach. Experience counts, even though you have a nice transcript.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inadequate of staff throughout the ranks. Need to give staffs real Overtime budget. Otherwise, management wouldn't know how many staffs need to be hired since the working hours are distorted.
