Seems like a fair offer and above what you'd get if you stayed. Only thing to consider is technical growth. Years 2-4 offer a ton of technical accounting growth as you start to see a variety of complex areas on the audit. What will experience at company be like and will you get exposure to same type of experience? I'd consider that strongly before making your decision.

Op that seems to be a theme in audit firms because I've heard of a lot of people that were in your situation and I've experience some form of this myself. It sucks man. My real advise to you is that if you feel you can grow in this place go for it . Sometimes the way they rate us in these big audit firms can discourage you & prevent you from growing professionally.

How many years experience? If you're only at 2 years, then this is a solid offer. If you're at 4 years then it's a bit low.

Ey1 most young pups in NYC live with multiply roommates in a 2 or 3 bedroom convert. Which means they add a room with a fake wall. They are usually very small and still cost a shit load. So to answer your question they survive like us all in NYC, by living the rat race in the greatest city in the world!!!!

PwC 1: mainly a super stressed senior. I had only been at the firm for 3 months, so two snapshots of little progression didn't pan out well for me in CRTs. I'm doing fine now but it left a bad taste in my mouth that I didn't get the benefit of the doubt.

Just 10k bonus seems small though

SS1: I'm at a little under 1.5 years. Currently an acting senior and would likely get promoted in Jan 2018 or July 2018, but I am really trying to not be pigeonholed as an auditor - this fits into my plans in that respect.

PwC 1: not an FS company, and this is a recurring annual bonus - I was told it tends to scale so it could be $10-20k, just depends.

Oh SS1 sounds like a partner

Nice

10k bonus at the associate level is good to me. Id be

SS1: They're acquisition-heavy and my role would be a mix of finance/IT. I'm not an accountant, but I will get exposure to a lot of nitty gritty details on their business because I'm weeding out incorrect allocations and mappings over time. It's less FP&A driven, really more of a systems analyst role. I'm okay with that because it furthers my finance and IT skills, without being in Audit.

^Sounds like you've thought it through. If the job excites you and you feel there's good experience there then go for it! Compensation is pretty good for only 1.5 years experience.
