24 yrs old, Macc, 1.5 yrs PwC tax experience, 1/4 done with CPA. Salary still capped at 55.5k. Just received an experienced tax accountant offer from a company for 75k with 10% bonus after 1 year, same promotion structure as PA (SA,Manager, etc.). I should probably take this right? I believe a top tier SA on my PwC team with several years experience was making 75kish.

Yes, it’s time to leave if you want $20k more now and 2-3 years of being underpaid is easily $45k.

Kinda off topic but how are you handling studying for cpa while working full time? I’m about to start and unsure how to schedule my days. Thinking 2-3 hours every weekday and 5 hours on Saturday and Sundays.

Uh I don’t really plan on rewarding myself until I pass all 4. Maybe if I pass a test I’ll buy myself a new fancy pen for the next one. Once I pass all 4, I plan on using the bonus to buy my mom a Michele watch.

Less hours than big 4? If so, sounds like a sweet deal to me. 🤷‍♀️

$75k base is about a senior 2 (now senior 3 b/c of pandemic) salary for low COL. Does the company offer similar or better benefits than PwC?

Right. SA1s start at 75k in mid COL. Is there a possibility you get promoted in July? If so, it may be worth the wait. Raises and bonuses are generally better at big 4

If you are unhappy with your current role, and you believe you can stay at least 3 years in your new role, I would take it. You can jump in three years and receive another 20k bump in the future. I am finding out a lot of the high paying manager roles want you to have some kind of industry experience as well

Currently an A3 in audit. My team communicated to me that they’re pushing for me to get mid-year promo (Jan 2022) but I’m also interested in leaving to another Big 4 for AAS as an S1. Current salary is $73.6k and am unsure of how much I should be going for to make the jump worth it. I know EY FAAS offered a friend $85k in my market but assuming I get mid year promo I’m not so sure the salary bump would be significant enough. How much room for negotiation is there with Big 4 experienced hires?

On January 5th, I submitted a Consortium application to Berkeley, Tuck, Darden, Ross, Mccombs, and Anderson. Today I received my promotion from C to SC. I made SC at 3.5 years out of college at a boutique (Pariveda, Slalom, West Monroe) I made C 1 year out of college, but not sure if Adcoms will "notice" that, or just see me as a 3 YOE C. I feel a 3.5 YOE SC is a meaningful difference, but Stacy Blackman (robo email) says to not update adcoms. Thoughts?

Hi Today I received a call from the Accenture recruiter who had discussed my HR round and my profile was put on hold. She told me that at level 10 the maximum fixed salary can be 11.10 LPA and rest variable. 11.10 is fine or can they increase upto 13 LPA? I told her to proceed my profile although I am having offers from other organisation like PWC with 14 fixed, but I beleive Accenture is better in terms of work life balance and onsite opportunity.

We just found out we're pregnant and I'll be 9 weeks by concert time. We aren't ready to tell anyone but we can't think how we can ask them to cancel without explaining. We are all vaccinated and are in SF so cases are low, but not zero. Any advice?
