How are senior leaders perceived at RSM Chio Lim?

Pros

Great colleagues from other departments

Cons

Most laid back culture Do not promote team work Solo rating with minimum support on training and development Short term prospect with minimum opportunity to rise A lot of politics amongst top management, causing junior execs to suffer Limited opportunities to look beyond what you specialise in, only a few who are good at building their relationship MAY have opportunities Bosses who are stuck up there for too long seem to be arrogant and point fingers on junior members in order for them to look good The blame game is strong and not everyone will survive Without support and help from management, it's very likely to lose your job fast Worst remuneration and benefits Bosses do not show a single care on how you perform and help you along the way will have dire consequences.

Advice to Management

Talents are hard to find, stumble upon a few good ones but too bad your elite team is scared of losing their own job hence they played the defensive game all the time.

How is management perceived at RSM Chio Lim?

Pros

- Top factor: People. The people are very willing to help out one another and provide guidance. - Experience gained, however this is expected from an audit firm

Cons

Too many to be explained in depth - Worst factor: Ridiculous remuneration package. Simply insulting and not even competitive amongst the midtier, not to even mention the big 4 - Poor benefits (staff pantry remains with a large tin of biscuits and tin of milo even during covid period whereas client's pantry has individual packaged drinks and snacks p.s. we can already see the clear difference between treatment of client and staff) - Non-existent staff retention - Work to pay ratio is hopeless - Constant implementation of redundant changes to processes which is very inefficient and prove as a hassle to the staff (change in data analytics software to cut costs, eFS to save costs in hiring admin department, frequent update to audit forms which does not value add) - Some (not all) upper management that clearly do not know what they are doing and merely raise redundant points to portray work done which makes staff life difficult. Also request for staff judgement and opinion but clearly does not listen.

Advice to Management

As mentioned above, the people of rsm are the top attracting factor of the firm. The current non-existent staff retention strategy and 'i can always find a new staff to replace' mentality will see to it that RSM loses the staff which work hard to build the firm to where it is today. Treat the staff as they deserve and they will repay with their loyalty and effort, if not just expect the same old high turnover rate and low employee morale. Be sincere when you ask others for their opinion. Dont simply ask for the sake of asking, just to use your higher rank to oppress their thoughts. The world is changing with IT advancement and the approach of how client works, dont expect your old boomer mentality to continue being relevant in current times. Lastly, please seriously buck up on the remuneration package. It is not even an obvious choice outside the big 4, contrary to your slogan.
