Anyone works at Embark? Salary and benefit look really great. Senior associate with 3 years of big 4 experience starts at 90k. What it’s like to be working at the firm?

We’ve had a bunch of seniors go there. They all like it, a lot of travel. However, depending on what you’re looking at, actual base salary is incredibly low. You make up the rest in commissions.

Can you elaborate more on the base salary and commission?

Your salary is dependent on how utilized you are. Your base is low and given regardless, but depending on how billable you are, it increases your paycheck each period. Makes it difficult to budget sometimes from what I’ve heard when you first switch over because you’re not in control of when you’ll work on a project and not.

I’m not quite sure. That was a bit of a turnoff to me, along with some other things, so I didn’t continue forward with pursuing an opportunity there.

Me not buying a word of this propaganda on the compensation calls. They do realize who they’re trying to fool, don’t they? We invented smoke and mirrors. Don’t try it with us.
