8 YOE in FS consulting doing mainly project management/business analysis work. Realistic base for Big 4 Manager in LCOL?

Can’t speak to LCOL but similar YOE except already a manager and was offered 185 base at EY


Sorry i do not remember. It was too low for me to consider i didn’t get into the details

180-210k anything under won’t be worth much of your time at this point… especially with how B4 treats managers…

Line of business matters. What industry?

Financial services has a lot of different areas. Front office, mid office, back office? I work in financial services consulting (mid office) and make very different money from a friend who does front office consulting work.

Probably around $200 for lcol would be good.

Is it worth working for these Big4 companies? Just curious. I work in tech. Fintech to be exact but can venture outside in technology. Based on what I’m seeing here I’d like to gauge where I’m at. I’ve got 8 YOE in Project Management, 12 in leadership/managerial role.
