Bring in new ones, increase fees on existing ones

You donít HAVE to, but then you donít make money.

Might as well say a Grab driver can choose to work only 1 hour a day.

Why would people want to leave big 4 audit
when promotion is 99% guanranteed and big4 has been conducting market adjustment on salaries for the past 2 years to attract talent?

Sigh.

I know where you are coming from and from your perspective, it may be difficult to understand ďkids these daysĒ.

There is a disconnect between the generations - I see both sides, but find myself helpless and powerless to do anything to bridge this gap.

More like if u earn audit salary u are not able to afford nice tailored suits/dress (also thereís no need for these u can just wear jeans and sneakers), for the ladies not able to afford and no time for spa, premium skincare brand, sleep (most impt protection against ageing), and too much stress eating of cheap and oily food until become Dino

Stay in the industry for long and the lifestyle will make u look similar

For new joiner, especially guys, if they are alpha and dare to dress and impress enuf they wonít be in audit

No leh. There are other high stress long hours industries where I see the ladies still manage to keep fit and chio. And I'm not talking about those jiakliaobee jobs where females are there to look pretty like RMs or recruiters or private bankers.

I'm talking abt doctors, lawyers, management consulting etc. Very few dino ladies.

It's really abt the go-getter attitude n mindset. If you're not lazy n willing to improve or maintain yourself, you will find the time to go to gym, yoga, spin class all that. Not everything can blame it on long hours or money.

I feel b4 too slow to react and dismiss great resignation as normal attrition.

Donít think b4 doing a good job at stemming resignations, now lock in death spiral when people leave because other colleagues leave and no one left.

Iím not finding excuses for auditors to dress badly or to not exercise. Personally I feel thatís the auditor personalities. They donít want to stand out and dress nicely so they dress Jialat like their colleagues or managers. When I was still in big 4 quite a number of my batch are very fit .whatever points you brought up is what I want to say, is just the industry norm, where people have no intention and no meaning of dress nicely or care abt their looks. For management consultants , tbh they need to look nice, thatís their requirement , doctor and lawyers maybe not so, unless the lawyers work in corporate finance/M&A field

How's this surprising?
Females in audit are equally as unimpressive as their male counterparts. That's why. Definitely not Type A personalities otherwise they wouldn't be in audit, or even big 4.
