They’re way off in Canada too. Ottawa COL has gotten super high and trailed behind other places for a crazy long time. Calgary and Montreal salaries were astronomical in comparison

Ooof

Not at KPMG. Salaries were definitely lower. We had several people transfer and since they were “overpaid” for Philly, they barely got raises the next year.

This comment doesn’t make sense. Are you saying that there is no CoL difference between the two? Because I’d be very surprised if that’s true. Or are you saying the firm doesn’t do CoL distinctions for any markets, cuz you’d be wrong again

I’m creating comp benchmarks to make a case to leadership that we need to increase our base pay band for an associate position we’re hiring (I am currently a manager at a tech startup). Would love it if people who recently got an offer from a tech company in the corporate strategy / BizOps team could comment their base offer and YOE (ideally looking for 1-3 YOE comps) and the company. I want to fight to pay my associate more!! Thanks all

How many overtime hours pay did you all receive as an analyst? In my offer, it stated I will be eligible to receive overtime pay as a CDP analyst so how much more $$$ is that for the year? 3k? 5k? Etc I’m currently deciding between Accenture and big 4 right now.

Can anyone briefly explain why so many CPAs go into executive search/headhunter roles? I feel like that has to be such a saturated market. And there are a billion staffing firms. Do they make good money?? I have zero interest in it. I’m just curious about the appeal to that over industry accounting…or literally anything else besides hounding burned out B4 auditors on linked in day in and day out.
