Beginning to be concerned that new first years are going to be making more than me after my raise (A2)... Does this ever actually happen?

I'm only making 1k over what the new hires are gonna be making in July, but I've only been with the firm for 6 months. #sadlife

A2 associates should be bumped up for whatever the A1 increase is. If not, associates should revolt!

like

No, but in the Bay Area it's common that A2 makes about 2 grand more than A1 because they have to bump up the pay to attract campus hires

Pwc 1 - that's if you get a decent rating. I received a terrible rating so I'll either be making the same as the new hires or less. #notworthstaying

If you get a 2 by us you don't get a raise and then new hires will make $1k more than you.

Southeast. I used to live in NYC so high rent doesn't shock me. I just am not sure how to make it work with a big4 salary. The col adjustment is a joke as far as I know.

Best advice is to start career at mid tier like BDO, GT or RSM. Get more exposure to audit areas your first two years, easier to make senior. Then once you make senior jump to Big 4 and get the market increase coming in. You'll come in above what internal promotes are making since they have to bring you in at market value.

Yeah I honestly am not sure how people in the Bay Area do it. I've been thinking about transferring out there for a while but don't like the cost of living.

I wonder if firms do that to push people out

Pwc 1 where are you from? Living out here in the Bay Area is ridiculously expensive.

No at least at Deloitte they will give compression raises so there is still a somewhat tiered structure. Granted they don't tell you how much the gap is between the levels

It can happen. Don't worry about it.

Help. My supervisor and I work closely together on our project. Partner and SM have told us directly they want me more visible, to build a brand with client, etc. But when I raise my hand to take things on (drive meetings, sub initiatives etc), manager refuses to give up any of the “higher visibility” work so that, in his words, he does not risk himself falling out of the spotlight, he wants to be the “go to”. It’s not that I am not capable (lots of great feedback from him and Partner/SM) -
