partner probability also depends on your luck, if you are around partner level and there is a partner retiring, good chance you will get to move up. if you see your partners all young guys, then no chance for you la. no different from civil service, if the top dont leave, no position for you.

Has the manager's pay been reducing??? When I left big 4 four years ago, my first year pay as manager is 7,300...

That's not a joke unless audit actually pays way below tax.

Unregistered 15-04-2016 11:35 AM

My understanding is tax managers do pay higher than audit managers as their responsibilities are much higher. Tax managers need to sign off correspondences to clients/IRAS while F/S are being signed off by audit partner only. That is also why tax people take longer time to be promoted to managers (i.e. 2-4 years) unlike audit people which normally takes only 1 year.

I believe different salaries for male and female. If I am not wrong, guys get $200 more.

4 letter one pays stratified salary as mentioned previously (2.900, 3,000, 3,100), according to class of degree.

all others, 2,850.

I thought only civil service pays guys more for NS?

I think all 4 firms basic pay 2850-2900. The 4 letter one pays +100 for second upper, +200 for fch. The other firms pay the basic regardless on honours.

Do correct me if i'm wrong!

That's the thing, I heard that big 4 pays more for NS contributions.

In fact, this isn't something that is exclusive to the civil service. In Shell, an O&G MNC, guys also get paid.

Nope, they dont. Why should they, anyway?

Sorry... When u said 2-4 years for tax and 1 year for audit, I believe u are refering from AM to M rite?

Unregistered 15-04-2016 04:06 PM

Although I do heard rumors saying tax pays more than audit, i didn't know the gap could be so much.

Unregistered 15-04-2016 07:13 PM

how much does audit pays until manager role? i assume the four letter one pays higher too?

Managers are normally 8-10k

Unregistered 15-04-2016 10:10 PM

Slightly off topic: those who went for fresh grad final-round interviews, how long did you all have to wait for verbal offers? Is a 5-weekday wait normal?

life as an auditor
 
Hey!

Does anyone know whether auditors have to work at weekends??

Unregistered 16-04-2016 10:42 PM

The posts here are mostly over exaggerated in terms of the salary. So take everything with a pinch of salt.

Does auditors work on weekends? Yes if you cannot finish your work(most of the time) and if you are at fieldwork and on a tight deadline. It is not uncommon to be burning most weekends off also

Yes. That's rite. It took me 3 years from AM to be a tax manager.

AM 1st yr - 5,400
AM 2nd yr - 5,800
AM 3rd yr - 6,000
M 1st year - 7,300

My understanding is after M, yearly increment would be that much in term of %. Just 300-400 yearly. That why u need to leave once u promoted to M. By moving out, u could get at least 15% increase in monthly salary.

Thank your lucky stars and sign the contract on the spot if they offer you 5.5k - 6k. SA is only a 4-5k role.

Unregistered 19-04-2016 10:14 PM

maybe he got senior 3? 5.5 seems reasonable.

As for SIM cert, public sector is possible nowadays, but popular ministries or stat boards chances are very slim. MNC wise sales jobs is possible, but otherwise chances are very low. Management program 0% chance usually.

Sometimes minority <5% of SIM grads will still be able to get into good MNCs, but it is more luck and got something else to offer than something you should expect. Most SIM grads either join local companies or those small unknown MNCs.

Hey thanks so much for ur reply! I had an intern experience previously at a small local audit firm, and I'm having a hard time deciding if I should just jump into that company straight or do a degree at sim UOL/RMIT. Any advice please? Half of my family says I should just join that small local audit firm as it's not easy to get a job these days when my results aren't so good and even if I can complete my sim degree there's no guarantee that I can find a job next time due to the intense competition from other local uni.

That's for tax not audit. Anyway, what I have quoted here was 4 years ago and not for EY and DT. They pay the lowest then. Not sure about now.

Unregistered 22-04-2016 11:00 AM

Anyone working in the big 4, can advise on current figures?

qwerty1 22-04-2016 06:53 PM

For EY (Financial Services - Risk Advisory), what are the various levels like? I heard the levels go as Analyst -> Associate -> Senior Associate -> Manager -> Senior Manager -> Director -> Partner.
I am interviewing for Senior Associate this coming week, what would be a realistic salary expectation? 7000 monthly too high?

I think SA max is 8300, but if not enough exp they might not offer 7000.

Depends on how impress you are with them. If they really like you and think you have a future with them, even 8k is very common...
