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

Hey, Chi. First time caller.

So I'm considering a switch from law to consulting, and noticed EY has started posting salary ranges for positions. All the mid- to senior-level jobs I'm looking at are in the $95k to $150k range. Is that right? True for all the big 4? Seems super low. I guess I never thought about it before but how exactly do you folks get paid?

Is the promotional structure in Big 4 TAS/FDD similar to how it is in Big 4 Audit? E.g. 2 yrs at associate, 2-3 yrs at senior, etc?
Or is it more merit based where you’re promoted when ready, e.g. 1-1.5 yrs at associate, 1.5-2 yrs at senior, etc?
If the latter, what’s the fastest you’ve seen someone get promoted and at which levels? Thanks

Looking to leave my current role, in industry (engineering/manufacturing) and to get back into big 4 (same firm as well), however I have a 3 month holiday planned from December next year.

Are big 4 pretty lenient on allowing holidays of that length? Especially for boomerangs? Or is it better to come back after the holiday and try then? Thinking that contracting temporarily might be the way to go in the interim.
