Thanks EY 1! I'm moving and Deloitte doesn't have an office in the area. I was wondering if the jump to mid tier was worth it.

^definitely depends on market. I'm NYC and my friends at BDO work way more than I did at PwC. Most likely because the BDO NYC office is large enough to have public companies and also private filers. B4 I had a public client which filed by mid Feb and busy season was over. BDO friends had publics then rolled over on to privates and busy season listed through end of March/early April

Also keep in mind benefits, time off, 401k, all that adds up.

^Agreed. My last busy season at BDO, it rolled in through June with a public job, IPO work for a sub of the private job and then moved to private company audits. And I'm in Texas, not NYC so it isn't just centralized to there but sporadic throughout.

I know a lot of the mid tier salaries are higher through manager level since Big 4 strives for 50th percentile on salaries. Roommate is at a regional and makes quite a bit more as a senior than we do at big 4

They may be to start for a first year but after that no. I started there and my starting salary was only a grand higher than Big 4 and after that, it was lacking behind. I had to come to Big 4 to get a better senior salary than what I was getting being a high performer.

B4 offers better benefits (although mid tier benefits certainly aren't shitty) and generally has higher pay. I've got friends that work at BDO and my experienced senior salary was about $5K above theirs.

Had roommate in B4 and he made 5K more than me at each level... works way way more tho

No B4,higher

I make more in advisory at BDO than big 4 as a senior.

^you moved from B4 audit into BDO Advisory or are you saying that BDO advisory pays more than B4 advisory?

BDO will probably pay you more than what you make at Deloitte assuming they want you badly enough.

I was never in b4 but have friends in b4 advisory and I make more than they do.

Could just be market related. I'd be surprised if BDO was higher than B4 across the board in advisory. Also could be due to small sample size between you and your friends.

So many factors go into comp. generally if you came into the firm at a higher level you're getting more money than those who grew within the firm. That's because you come in at a market rate, since the firm had to compete with other firms for your services. When you grow within the firm is able to pass below market raises your way.

Any insight into what NY Biglaw counsel positions pay? I imagine it varies but I think my firm may be majorly lowballing with basically just senior associate salary.
