Any partners here who worked in a midtier firm (GT/BDO/RSM) and the big four? What is the compensation difference at the partner level?

Question for Partners/MD, how did you line up MD/Partner opportunities in other 4c firm when you were at SM/Director level? Promoted within the firm make sense if you in top 5-10%. Contd.
