In what team and region?

DC area and from looking at how they teams are structured, it would just be tax

What level? Below manager, not much different. Generally higher performing team, but YMMV.

At MD level and above, it’s a lot more kill what you eat than big 4 is (tends to weed out lazy partners, which I like). Because of this, pay for a typical to mid-to-high performer from a big 4 is fantastically better. That is, pay at A&M can be 3-4x what pay is at big 4.

SA1: M&A tax group. I have direct knowledge that the pay is 3-4x what one would receive as an TMD (a non-equity partner) at KPMG for the same amount of work/book.
