Hi! I have 6 years of experience in tax from b4 and am a CPA. I did depart from b4 but I’m willing to boomerang for the right opportunity.

Are EY raises based on a percentage or a flat $ amount? Going through the Big4Transparency site and I’ll be a Staff 2 making more than many B4 Seniors 1 and 2 in same/ similar service line and similar COL cities. A little nervous that I won’t get raises or will get very small raises. (I start in 2 months so I don’t have any performance goals yet). Also they offered me a base salary that was already at the top of the salary range but I negotiated for higher and it was accepted.
