Depends on your experience at that level. If you are experienced, should start with 180k for the reason you mentioned.

I’m a Senior 2 high performer in Tax and am happy with my current job/coworkers. But I know that if I never leave EY, I’ll be underpaid compared to outside hires. I don’t want to leave EY for another firm, because I don’t want to have to rebuild my reputation and network. The thought has crossed my mind to apply to another Big 4 firm and get an offer from them and bring it to EY to ask for a pay raise (essentially say “match it or I’ll leave”). Has anyone ever done this? What was the response?

When should I consider switching firms? High performer at big 4 for a year and a half with only a 2% raise and nothing really feeling like I’m rewarded for the long hours/weekends and holiday hours I put in. Wasn’t thinking about leaving until I had some talks with a couple partners about going for promotion and one of them revealed that there were thoughts I was planning to leave the firm. Don’t know if I should stay somewhere with partners thinking that I already have a foot out the door
