What are typical raises at mid tier? I’ve averaged 20% year over year since I started

Yeah no shot it’s 20% unless you’re a top partner making 3mil or so at age 50

I’ve worked at mid-size and big 4 and everyone starts about the same out of school but raises are better at big 4 and there are more bonuses at big 4 (once you hit senior or above).

So I could expect the same growth if I left pwc for a smaller firm?

Got it. So really it’s the bonuses that differ largely between the firms?

Mg SO graduated at the same time as me. I joined big 4 at 57k and he joint industry at 88k. 4 years later, his base is 92k and my base is 87k. We start with so Low base and 4 years later I still could not catch my SO
