apparently i was offered only 2.5k. I was told by HR that the company offers fresh grad 2.5k as a start.

Am i severely short-changed?

i have done my medical but yet to sign the contract (will be down tmr though). Any advice? thanks

Note that an internal auditor is very different from an external auditor despite sharing similar designation.

An internal auditor is essentially a process executive whose main job is to ensure that the company's policies and processes across all departments are adhered to. This is very different from an external auditor whose main focus is on checking the books.

2.5k is not high, but decent. Most companies will not differentiate fresh grad executives across different departments. You certainly should not use a big4 auditor as a benchmark, completely different roles.

Common practice.

One thing you should take into account is the reporting structure of your role. Many MNCs are moving into 2 tier matrix reporting for internal audit and if your company is headquartered in Europe / America, this could mean many late night or early morning telecon calls.

Bad idea.

1) Frankly a fresh internal auditor is just another junior job, a company is unlikely to make exception if their policy for fresh grad is already 2500. In all honesty, internal audit isn't exactly a powerful or important department.

2)I assume you have verbally informed them that you will be coming down to sign contract. Doing a last minute stunt on the spot will piss off many people big time. They’ll have to engage various stakeholders and relook at internal equity, get approval etc. Even in the unlikely event you pull off, it sets you up for failure because you have offended quite a few people including your boss before you even start work.

Unless you are some hot potato (which I doubt seeing that you are considering joining a normal executive level job), I recommend you not try something like that. Either accept or reject the role upfront.
