This is based on what I think.. not that I confirmed with him already.. ;)
"Malaysian accountant Kelvin Yap, who now works in Britain, said while the higher salary was enticing; it was more the international exposure and greater opportunities that took him there.
Long-term success, measured by wealth or professional recognition, made the offer by a British recruiter three years ago irresistible, he said in an e-mail interview.
He used to work with PricewaterhouseCoopers in Kuala Lumpur for three years before moving to London, saying that the job progression is good despite people thinking there would be a glass ceiling for non-English professionals.
Yap, 26, from Petaling Jaya, now works as an investment professional in HarbourVest Partners, a global private equity of funds. "
Yes ppl.. the money is good! FLEE while you can...
