    Cons

    - Management unable to provide proper guidance to staff - Negligence of manager in reviewing files lead to blaming to staff - pay way low below market - no clear cut of job scope and responsibilities. Expect to take over your senior job after their sudden resign or accept jobs exceed your capacity when the peak period comes - 2 years bond (exchange for nothing)

    I have been working at RSM Chio Lim full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I'm fortunate that the people in my team are nice. And that's pretty much it for the pros.

    Cons

    Poor starting salary - Senior partner says it's a tradeoff for "better clientele".... but honestly I don't see any good clients in my department. Their accounts are so messy, figures dont tie, missing files, etc. By right we should disclaim their FS but since the client is friends with our partner.... no choice but to issue a clean opinion. Poor increment - Really poopy increment. Unflexible working hours Lack of manpower and staff

    Pros

    -Plenty of training to ensure you understand your job well -Good colleagus

    Cons

    The usual cons can be referred to in other comments. What I would like to highlight is the lip service paid to being an "international accounting firm" for RSM Chio Lim. If you are really an international accounting firm as you so proudly proclaim to be, then please act like one. The welfare and culture here are almost non existence and staff morale is very low.
