Thank you for sharing. This is useful. What about those with degree, is it possible to go beyond seniors? SQP is really useless ;( it make sense to take sqp after u reached manager/sm then? (If you sure you want to try for partner role).

Unregistered Audit is not actuarial. You don't need to pass exams to get promoted. SQP or CA is to sign accounts.

Not only EY. Boils back to manpower gap created by the harsh working hours and environment, as well as fresh graduate pay which has not been adjusted for a while (at least 10 years?). Year 0 is maybe still alright, but the attrition can kicks in fast in Year 0-3 and may be bigger than expected at times. So need other ways to full the shortage .

Thanks. No wonder I see big4 HR not from sg and there is a lot of referral bonus and stuff. Meritocracy at its best. It amazing how nation building becomes village building for non sg. Will save my time and skip big4.
