Any objective insights on if ZS partners are better paid than Big4 Partners overall with 1-3 years of partner experience?

I don't know EY, and my Geo isn't US.. But..

We aren't structured like B4s, so the tax burden, self funding healthcare, etc are all non issues for us.

There is also likely a tighter range between ZS partners. The highest isn't a crazy multiple of the lowest.

If you're considering an offer, there should be enough detail there.


My thoughts are 1) since we buy in at book value there is much less cash flow impact relative to some firms, 2) as a private company, we pay out profits every year among partners rather than comp being tied to RSUs 3) Comp at top levels can be 6+ times starting principals 4) we delibertly look at long term sustained performance, and by year 5, it's hard to imagine anyone would leave for monetary reasons (years 1-3 might be slightly slower growth, but in the long run, it's irrelevant). Edit: we also don't fund retired principals with a pension. All money stays in the firm, which I think is a great thing.
