    I worked at Baker Tilly International (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The technical training is very good, the work-life balance is okay, decent salary and pension structure. There are plenty of opportunities for the right people.

    Cons

    The management team do not appear to have any understanding of what makes the average employee tick with regards to motivation. You are just a number and if you are in an office that is taken over by Baker Tilly there isn't much regards for the impact is has on people.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people as individuals, listen to their concerns. Look out for the people that don't always shout the loudest - sometimes they have potential too.

    Pros

    Promote development and growth to potential employees in term of personal and professional. Encourage staff to pursue for professional advancement i.e. getting professional qualification such as ACCA/CPA and secondment to affiliate office in other countries.

    Cons

    Employee benefits such as overtime paid or time off are not available. Work life balance hard to achieve, thus do 'balance up' in term of benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Do consider on the office space since the number of employees are building up.
