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?

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

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...

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
