I'm a big 4 Acon in without an MBA. In my 2.5 years of work exp I have delivered great value across projects. Secured one of the fastest promotions along w best performance rating despite covid. My current ctc is 7 lpa while my project teams are full of IIM MBAs at consultant levels who get more than twice I get. Escl. to HR only to hear back that MBA is critical for improved pay and even if I get top class promotion again it won't match the bands. Why pay for pedigree (only) and not merit?

Is Accounting even a major that students are attracted to anymore? I’m helping for recruiting and we barely had any students show up for recruiting to a school where I went and the line for big 4 was wrapped around the wall. It makes sense if Going to school for accounting + extra credits to get to 150, lower starting salary, more hours during busy season, and have to pass the hard CPA exam. Doesn’t sound attractive to me.
