Most of the colleagues (including the counsellor) are friendly and nice.
Some of the managers (esp newly promoted) are very “wok”.
(Coz revenue is their performance indicator.)
System and mechanism:
Everything are related to the engagement fee (coz all the expenses are counted as disbursement on that engagement).
IT department is the most useless department in the company.
So many restrictions on accessing company resources.

“1. Seems to be a written test started from 2017 fresh grad hire
2. Assessment centre (as usual) – be aware of NDS
This is not a discrimination but please be careful on the presentation part as some of the “aggressive” or “pro-active” NDS may dominate the presentation. You have to protect yourself on the presentation part as it only consists of 15 mins for normally eight candidates to present. If you cant do well or being “trapped” by others, please dont give up and spare no effort on the Q&A session, it really helps.
3. Partner in tips:
i) BE YOURSELF – It is crucial to be yourself. It really comforts the partner and you.
ii) Speak out your preferences: The one who interviews you may not be your future partner. So if you have your own team preference please raise out during the partner interview.
iii) Preparation directions:
-CV-based questions –> Make sure you can share well what you have wrote on your CV
-(For tax only) —> Read some current tax news. It may not always being asked but at least you can show your understanding of the industry and position that you applied. Sometimes you may build up your confidence as you understood what the partner is talking about and also make the partner trust you that you are the right candidate
(Here is a recommendation, read those tax highlights from Big 4, just understood some terms and what is happening in the tax world [at least HK tax world])
-(Optional) Find out and a line with the company values and read the current news of the company –> Show your passion.
