A typical day starts with reviewing the cases on hand. Staff were required to have at least 10 active cases on hand and sometimes when all cases have deadlines, it can be hard to manage.
Then you go to internal with other audit teams or to external meetings with taxpayers. You also spend time researching or writing your reports. Each case is different, I learned a great deal about how companies operates, how to analyse the financial reports, how their business grow and what are the likely areas of problems.
Managers are more concerned about achieving the revenue target rather than listening and considering the sustainability of the work load.
Rewards/advancements were usually made based on who you know and how well you talk rather than on actual work done.
Inappropriate focuses made on how a report is presented rather than whether you have solved the problems.
Job security is relatively good. No need to work overtime if you don't want to.
Work culture is poor and office politics is distressing
