    Pros

    1. If you like a company's portfolio with involving charities, NPO (Not-Profit Organisation), VWO (Voluntary Welfare Organisation) and ceremonial/religious organisation then probably you get the necessary exposure to this area of expertise.
    2. Lesser competitive in terms of workload
    3. Get to work with different combination of colleagues and not with just that fixed group of people
    4. TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) treatments are claimable under medical claims (at least currently)
    5. Provides annual training to all levels to improve competencies and technical knowledge

    Cons

    1. Salary is always one notch below big four and some other mid-tier (similar) companies
    2. Average to steep learning curve
    3. Expectations are very different from job to job and from manager to manager
    4. High staff turnover

    Advice to Management

    1. Be more generous on salary and learn to appreciate the staffs more will help.
    2. Be more generous with awarding overtime preventing staffs to be so easily exhausted and sick from working there.
