Do other big 4 have Executive Assistants? KPMG is saying they are doing what other big 4 models are using. Do the partners and MDs do their on admin work?

EY has EAs for PPMDs.

PwC has EAs for partners and MDs.

KPMG has them at least in the European countries I've been dealing with. Maybe it depends on the location?

EMs and and APs have shared EAs(12 EMs per EA/6 APs per EA), partners and senior Partners are 2 per EA, and a few Senior Partners/Global Leaders have a dedicated EA.

I support a global partner, an America’s market sector leader and 4 other partner/ principals

PPMDS get EA’s. One EA is usually assigned to 5-10 executives. We have in house EA’s in some cities as well as several locations of national executive assistant teams that support partners in other cities virtually.

Do PwC EAs work in local offices? Are they in hubs? Where are the majority located?

PWC1, this is exactly what KPMG is doing. Same states minus Dallas. You would think at least one firm would want to be set apart from the others. And I think our leader came from PWC.

BCG has AAs/EAs starting at the project leader level through MDP. Project leaders share an AA with 8-12 other PLs but MDPs typically only share their EA with 1 or 2 other MDPs

If you are not a partner, do any of the Big 4 have a mandatory retirement age? I have a friend who is working in industry and has been approached by a few firms as he has a very desirable technical skill set. He is in his 50's and doesn't want to make a move unless there is some runway to keep working. He basically could work as long as he wants where he is at. The pay increase would be significant for him to jump to but if he is mandatorily forced out in a few years it might not be worth it.
