Audit Supervisor in Kuala Lumpur

Great learning Curve
The workload and hours will test your perseverance, but the learning curve is great. The culture is great, and you will be surrounded by energetic and interesting people. Upper management are impressive leaders.

No life
No respect for boundaries, but expect everyone to respect the timeline. Bosses bend over to clients and we bend over for the bosses. Overall a horrible experience.

Abuse of managerial authority is rampant
I am in one of the smallest consulting departments in EY (M&A) which happens to also be one of the highest profit centres due to the scale of projects. However, my pay does not correspond with this as most of the fees will obviously be pocketed by the profit-sharing partners. I have no problem with this but what I consistently find absolutely demeaning is that the partners and managers expect you to give it your all in each engagement yet feel the need to make it very difficult to ask to claim for any of the overtime hence making you the equivalent of a corporate slave and that stems from the fact that there is a big gap between the manager's expectation of work turnaround and your ability to deliver. This comes at a more stirring time when our already very small department has suffered ridiculously high turnover rates towards the end of 2020, leaving a lot of the remaining seniors to have to pick up the slack in double time and at half the manpower than we had. Our pay has also been adjusted downwards due to the pandemic.As much as our partners refuse to see to our concerns, the high turnover really boils down to the truly questionable managerial capabilities of many of the managers who abuse their power in some very insidious ways. In particular, I've recently had one who refused to pull her weight in an engagement and expected me to work on the entire project alone and be at her beck and call whenever. Her entitlement made me resent my job as I suffered alone while she exploited loopholes in managing two projects simultaneously i.e. telling me she was working on the other project only for the other senior to tell me she was not. Nevertheless, her reputation precedes her but it was infuriating that she could get away with it because she had apple-polished the partners to her favour. Also, boundaries in this department is virtually non-existent but it's the nature of M&A they say. I've had managers call me on weekends incessantly and if you so much as miss one call, you're considered unreliable and your hopes for progression/promotion will be dashed.This department suffers from a great big disconnect between the partners and seniors. The partners only listen to and value the managers as the seniors are deemed easily replaceable. The partners are also quite uninspiring in their leadership or lack thereof which are also observed by their peers in the other adjacent departments especially when they make little to no efforts in unifying an already small department. Though, they are so enveloped in their little bubble that the many seniors who have left, in their efforts of sending a message, have done so in vain.What is most disconcerting is that many of the people outside of this department are able to see this prevalent problem which has continuously grown since I joined some years back. They have hired many new people to plug the gaping hole left by my previous comrades but needless to say, the ones who will have to train these new hires up will be doing so at the expense of our own time. I urge anyone who insists on applying to this department to seriously re-evaluate your choices.

Aside from being a well known international firm, that's all.
1. Salary is the lowest compared to other states in Malaysia.2. OT not claimable while employer expect you to work for 'free' for the company during peaks. 3. Workload and salary is DEFINITELY NOT PROPORTIONATE. Boss expects you to do work as a 'professional' while paying you at a 'fresh grad' entry salary. 4. Superiors expect you to know everything even if you are just a fresh grad. 5. Management is bad and ineffective. 6. Low increment and slim chances of being promoted. 7. Doesn't feel appreciated at work. 8. The list can go on very long, but I decided to make this review short and concise. Apart from some good colleagues, nothing more to say. Advice:Treat your employees like your family member, employees salary shall be proportionate to their workload. As a professional employer from a well known firm, do not abuse your employees in terms of their wages and increment just because you can. Hard work deserves recognisation in terms physically and financially.

Fun Place to work , Hard to get noticed
Fast Paced environment to work in with a diverse work culture. Although it was a short spent time working there due to unfortunate personal matters, i would highly recommend a work environment as EY for growth in career development.
