Intern (Former Employee) – Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia – 1 March 2018
Typical hours were 8.30am-5.30pm excluding OT during days I visited client's premises. My seniors were very friendly and were willing to answer my questions. I learnt about how the Auditors prepared financial statements, engagement letters and the organisational structure of the firm. The firm had a fairly flat organisational structure so I got to interact with people who were near senior management level. The hardest part of the job was understanding and carrying out some parts of the statutory audit as I had not studied audit at University yet. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know and work with people from different backgrounds and cultures.
Auditor (Former Employee) – MY – 13 September 2019
This is a traditional audit firm, so all the things that you have heard about working at an audit firm apply here. You are expected to work long hours during most of the year and the work can get mundane from time to time.
