Pros

given responsibility, trusted by management, your opinions matter, great & fun teams to work with (makes time go by faster), smart colleagues to work with, learn a lot in short period of time (soft skiils, technical skills, about businesses, and ofcourse audit skills), which is beneficial for future and present, great resume builder.

Cons

work-life balance not possible...audit deadlines not just during busy season but year-around mostly. audit work a lot of times tedious..harder to see the bigger picture. out of office almost all the time...no permanent office since always moving from client to client. Pay not comparable to amount of hours invested. Very possible to find better paying jobs with your skill set.

    Pros

    - Brand name, however tarnish by some recent scandals
    - Market pay, better than other 2nd tier accounting firms but slightly lower than the other big 3
    - Good training
    - Reasonable working hour

    Cons

    - Jobs are gradually shifting back to the Mainland offices. Since those partners and senior managers do not have much skills other than audit and the lack of business sense, they can go no where other than staying in the firm. The combined effect is that there is not as many opportunities as before for junior staffs to get to more senior level.

    - People management staff is forever changing. Every staff feels there is a pressure of downsizing from time to time. Staffs morale can not be lower.

    - When I say horrible management system, I meant it is managed by people. Strong favoritism exists for some managers / senior mangers for job allocations. Some male managers book some other female staffs having other things in their mind other than simply work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop staying in your room focusing on administrative work alone. Some of your changes are costing more than it benefits the firm. Go out of your room and find business for the firm.
