Default Low starting pay in big 4 accounting firms

The Big 4 accounting firms in Singapore - Deloitte, Ernst and Young, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers - have all raised the starting pay of fresh entrants.

This is reported in today's Straits Times.

But auditor upstarts with the Big 4 still get low starting salaries of $2,400 to $2,600 per month compared to other industries like banks (up to $3,700) and civil service ($2,910 for accounting grads).

Maybe the silver lining in the cloud is the relatively higher increments the fresh entrants may get when they stay on - $500 to $1,000 a year according to this discussion in Flowerpod.com.sg.

Yup.. the increments are higher... but at times you probably be earning less than 6 dollars per hour a day... Go calculate the hours you will be working yourself

Don't let this discourage you. Its sometimes a bit of luck...

Remember an article in the Straits Times a few years ago - break in at office building at 3 am - guess who reported the crooks? Auditors working there nearby were still at their desks. Wow. Stupid crooks - never break in near an auditors' office

Default are the big 4 really clones?

A friend of mine who has been through 3 of the big 4 tells me that these companies are all clones. Everything is same except name - long hours, same bosses, about the same salaries. Even the bosses and partners keep rotating across these companies and hence really, nothing different.

What do others say?
