    I worked at Baker Tilly International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast growing, good working environment and fair salary. Auditing Projects focusing on Large Group, which provide a nice platform to improve professional ability.

    Cons

    Super Busy, Constantly intensive works drive employees crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Put more attention on employees' warfare instead of only making money.

    I have been working at Baker Tilly International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) Good exposure to companies in various industries, such as construction, manufacturing, fund management, etc.
    2) See the whole picture, ie. from the planning to the completion stage, at associate or senior associate level, which is not the case in Big 4. (at least this is what happened for me)
    3) Friendly and helpful colleagues, and some managers
    4) Partners welcome staff to discuss audit issues with them
    5) Just started using Caseware this year, will definitely improve the process of rolling AWP in future.

    Cons

    1) No work life balance
    2) Engagement assignments allocation need improvement. Some staff are overworked, while others are quite free.
    3) Lack of staff benefits, such as only staff who are taking SQP will get full subsidy. Those who are studying ACCA or CPA will have to fork out their own money.
    4) Lack of team bonding activities, feel like all work and no play.
    5) Recently increased senior's notice period from 1 to 2 months together with salary adjustment, without advance notice
    6) Before the implementation of Caseware, need to print the AWPs, which wasted lots of papers.

    Advice to Management

    1) Improve staff benefits. At least give partial subsidies to those studying ACCA and CPA.
    2) Buy more fans, as there is no air-con during weekends.
    3) Organise more internal team bonding activities, which are not too expensive.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Baker Tilly International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Basically if you work hard enough, you will get promotion half a year once thought the hierarchy might be a bit too much. Which started from Audit Associate 2 (Fresh Graduate) -> Audit Associate 1 -> Audit Semi Senior -> Audit Senior 2 -> Audit Senior 1 -> Audit Senior Executive 2 -> Audit Senior Executive 1 -> Assistant Manager (Which might need around 1 year or more for promotion) -> Manager

    Cons

    Work overtime till night, midnight, weekends, which is pretty common in larger audit firms. Managements would encourage unhealthy competition among colleagues by implying who is doing better and who is not, at times, would even bad mouthed poorer performance colleagues.
