Yes

Pwc 2 you are wrong. 1% starts around 400k which is entry level partner salary

@ey2 a Average income for top 1% was 2.2 million, which means that top 1% range was likely well below 2.2 mil as the average is increased by the super rich

1% average in the US would be the more accurate basis for this question and not NYC!

Yes. Some Senior Managers would be too.

400K is 1%? Wow for NYC standards it's more like upper middle class (combined husband/wife) and not uber rich. I though 1% is more like 800K

Top 1% in NYC made $2.2 million in 2009... So... http://comptroller.nyc.gov/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/PR12-05-061.pdf -- depends on frame of reference.

Yes.

Yes to Top 1% nationally. Virtually every partner is. If a SM is married to another SM they are very close to Top 1% also.

Was that a rhetorical question? D'aa they are 1%. Typical of someone in NYC to think the question was local!?!

Top 1% of income in the US? Yes. Top 1% in net wealth? Maybe if they do really well at saving and investing. Top 1% of income globally? Yes, and you probably are too.

Question. Is the ability to work from anywhere globally an option at the big 4? I’ve talked to several that have stated there are policies / barriers to allowing employees to do that (i.e., not being able to take your phone / laptop overseas). Is this standard across industry? This would be a dream of mine and would honestly allow me to invest more into my work and tolerate the natural BS that comes with any role.
