    I worked at EY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good increment (RM1k every year after senior level)
    Good learning opportunities, learn alot of audit methodology.
    Networking opportunities, you have the chance to meet future CFOs and partners among your peers, if you dont plan to be one yourself.

    Cons

    Spend alot of time doing non-value adding work such as filling in lengthy enablers and signing off in system when you're going to signoff in hard copy later.
    Weak direction of training, too much emphasis on audit methodology that my friends at small firm are more knowledgeable than me on key laws such as GST, Taxation & Companies Act. Big 4 sometimes is all talk and no hands on.
    Many levels, to get a matter communicated to partner, it needs to go through senior and manager. This potentially results in slow response and dilution of the original message.
    High turnover, staff intake of 100 people reduces to 10-15 people after 3/4 years.

    Advice to Management

    Get better systems.
