I've heard a couple of things about how the partner pension amount @ PwC is determined, both similar in approach.

Both calculations I have heard of result in an annuity paid until death, at which point a surviving spouse (if any) receives the annuity.

The first calculation I have heard is that you get 80% of your highest earning year as a partner (e.g. If your best year was $1M, you'd get $800k as an annuity).

The second calculation I have heard is that they look at your three highest earning years as a partner, and take the second highest and you get 100% of that. (e.g if your three highest earning years were $1M, $800k, and $1.2M, you'd receive $1M as an annuity).

Is ANY of this true, or just all rumor? Any PwC partners that can chime in and explain the pension plan fact for fact? Perhaps with sample numbers?

Hi Sharks, I recently got an Offer from Pwc AC for the position of Senior Associate (50% hike from current fixed pay). However this position is 2 levels down from my current position. This makes me feel concerned. In my current position, I work in a capacity of a senior manager (compared to PwC); however in Pwc AC I will be far from any management. My current company is ready to match my CCTC to PwC Fixed; with a retention clause.
YoE: 8, CCTC: 20LPA w/ Fixed~17LPA
