However, these few years, I have no idea where did the hr find these uncultured kampong face and behavior jhk. The way they act and speak can easily tell that they came from those rural kampong suaku areas. Sometimes I really thought that Iím working as those low level accounting clerk in those ulu tuas sme companies. I thought big4 is supposed to be a prestigious audit firm, how come we are letting these chapalang people in to tarnish our reputation?
i am in a completely different industry. but during my time, entering big4 from the local 3 universities from biz/acc courses is considered prestigious. i have a friend in the same age group (slightly younger) who started off from big4 as well, but she had good bosses and job hopped numerous times, hitting a 5 figure monthly income before reaching 30. very talented and selective in her career choices.

in any workplace or sector, if offers aren't good enough, good talent can't be retained or attracted. can only rely on the remaining less able people who apply and stay. the bar for selection gets lowered over time.
