    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at RSM Chio Lim full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    SME clients with low revenue. Small engagements so junior auditors can solo and learn on-the-job. Extensive training programmes conducted during less-peak season.

    Cons

    2-year employment bond + 3-year laptop bond. Firm has almost 80% Malaysians. Some even with weak command in English. Emails have glaring grammatical errors, pronunciations are off - how to communicate professionally with clients like that? Want to hire and make use of foreign talent, but cuts salary. Compared to local employees, foreign employees have lower pay. Some also get down rank compared to the one held previously in Malaysia.

    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)
