Also just to add, the compensation is super sexy. Your bonus is based on your hours billed. Something like this: (Hours billed per year) x (your bill rate) x (30-40%??) - (your base)= your bonus

What’s the average comp for an Associate in PEPI or CPI then?

Very dependent on the practice. PEPI has a strong culture. Hours are long, but people are close and it has an entrepreneurial, familial feel in the group

Also curious. Wondering the level jump from Deloitte/F&EP to their PEPI group. Eg what does a Manager at Deloitte transfer over there at. Think their Manager job postings says 7 YOE. Have heard second hand staffing can be a challenge especially for new folks. Maybe even moreso than F&EP/Deloitte. And at A&M every day on bench is much more costly than at Deloitte (see post from Sr BA). I get impression “CFO Services” is marketed as one of their big selling points (to clients and potential employees) but I’ve heard those projects are very rare in practice.

I have not had an issue getting staffed. Like other firms, staffing is based on skill set , relationships, and reputation. When first starting, you need to put in the work to get to know people and preform well on your first assignment
