    Pros

    Extremely high learning curve, a 6 month can allow you to apply most of the audit procedure and accounting knowledge (but before that you must prove yourself)
    Nice co-worker, where they willingly to help you
    Nice client, in term of personalities

    Cons

    Long working hour with inadequate pay, high pay in term of absolute value, but really low if use workload as a benchmark to compare.
    Senior management is a problem
    High turnover, with more than 50% of newcomer not manage to make it through 2nd/3rd year of their employment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be stingy.. Pay an adequate salary... You have the financial strength to do so...

  2. Work there to start career but dont stay there...
