The difference in pay between audit partners and finance directors are way too big...
Audit partner enjoying $1mil every year shaking leg and playing golf with client while senior and staff have to OT everyday and work like slave because your audit partner purposely staff fewer people in the team to enjoy more profits for himself.

Song bo? Your audit partner will also bluff you that you will have a chance of becoming partner while making the requirements even more stringent and pwning you with SQP

Thats true... and given the current standard of SQP requirement alone (out of many requirements), most of the people will be eliminated because the papers are increasingly tougher...

Chartered accountant aka SQP is only important if you need to sign accounts. So if you do not aim to be partner, actually don't need it. Some people I know + myself actually stop paying the fees for CA after we left Big4.

Accreditation is a sneaky biz that preys on people's kiasuness

100k salary and 1m salary got lifestyle difference meh? You still only have 24 hours a day.
If you are not trolling, then you seriously lack imagination.

Of course there is a huge lifestyle difference between 100k and 1m.

If you want to continue eating $3 cai png when you earn 1m then be my guest.

So what is your opinion on this? Do you think they deserve to earn so much? Are their responsibilities and workload 100 to 1000 times more than executive?
