I mean, if you put in hundreds of hours a week and get paid less than someone who works at McDonald's (recalc at an hourly rate), I'm pretty sure people won't be satisfied with that. But fine, yes for the career trajectory if they are determined enough to stick through it.

No and No... but I can't leave now... EY has spoiled me with flex hours, travel, Hotels, expensive meals, uber rides, and most importantly unrealistic deadlines and quality standards... I finish most of my projects weeks before deadline and then have to sit on it... adding common sense into workpapers is 5 star quality.. I don't think industry will give me any of these benefits... for higher salary... soo 😐

EY 13, at any level people can look to see if they are getting paid enough by comparing it to other positions that require the same experience. It isn't about needing to grow up, just look at the numbers.

Any idea of base salary and TC at OW for Associate /Senior Associate roles within private capital practice ?

Lately, a lot of recruiters have been reaching out. I'm mostly happy in my role and w/my company (no longer w/Edelman), but one job caught my eye with a huge salary and title bump at a comparable company, culture and work wise. Interviews are going well - I'm torn about leaving - things are good now but some extra $$ for what seems like a similar experience seems like a no-brainer. Yet, I feel sad about potentially leaving my current company. Anyone have a similar experience? What happened?

Got an offer from Accenture but they have mentioned only fixed pay and not the salary breakup which is very strange because I have not had any such experience with any other company. On asking the HR, she said there are no deductions from this fixed pay apart from PF and the salary breakup would be given to you on the day of joining. Is this strange or common?
