Default induction/on-boarding procedure

For Directors and below, HR will just spend 15min on a group session with whoever also joining that day at the start go through some basic procedures and leave you with your department. Then really is up to how your department care, but most of them IMO quite disorganized or too busy so don't expect to be be led step by step.

There will be emails sent by HR to you to attend all sorts of compulsory sessions and e-learning in the next 6 months. AFAIK no fixed dates, so just sit back and work and when the invite comes accept and report on the stipulated time.
I joined as a Manager in PWC last month and the process was exhausting. Endless forms to fillup for payroll/CPF/insurance, sign in and out for laptop, next raise request for network and male aksecc, find a seat, and next day a litany of training programs on what the company is like, who to reach out in case of ethical dillema, company will not tolerate bullying, etc. Common sense stuff but still needed.

Why should other big4 be any different?

Are the staff in PWC permitted to bring their own devices to work? Or do they make do with whatever the company issues them with?

You gotta be kiding, there are countless number of managers in any big4, it is a standard title anyone who doesnt screw up will get after 2 years Associate + 2-3 years Senior Associate.

Unlesss you are including all those non-professional staff like clerks, adminsitrators, receptionist, shared services etc, a manager in big4 both in rank and pay is pretty low in the entire heirachy.

Associate Directors/Directors are more considered middle level. Do not be misled by fancy titles in the finance/consulting industry.

If a manager is like a Captain, what is Colonel? And then who might be a 2 star general? A 3 star general is certainly the managing partner.

I thought I had left this stuff after ORD.

nope, a 3 star general would be a member of the exec com. a managing partners in SG is more equivalent to a CO (i.e. LTC or COL). iirc most big4 have 5-7 levels of managing partners.
