In my situation, it is something like this kind of subsidiary as you mention. But is it weird for a subsi(aka its global trading arm) accounting department to consist of only 2 people????? and not like departmentalise AR one department, AP one department and stuff? And since there is a corruption scandal , would it even be worth the risk for me to join?

I understand that accountant are usually hard to promote. But my plan A was say if i were to join this MNC as account assistant, i will work for few years to gain sufficient good experience and made use of this brand to jump to a much better bigger MNC and higher rank (account executive).

my plan B was to stay in my audit firm til i get to audit senior than find an MNC or government sector accountant to settle down. But i was wondering is it even possible for a audit senior in a audit firm like mine to get to MNC or government sector? Or actually audit senior if is not from Big four are all useless **** and cannot get much good prospect?

my plan C was from this small/midtier audit firm i am in jump to Big four. thereafter from Big four go to MNC. But i have been trying since day one til now 1.5 years still no news.
