Does anyone have insight on how partner pay compares between big 4 and some of the smaller PA shops, like RSM / BDO? Curious to see what the difference in pay at that level may be. Thanks !

Very similar number, tbh. Big 4 is much more deferred comp, top 10 is more cash up front.

Does rsm/bdo have deferred compensation and pension? What are the retirement packages like at partner level?

Yes. 2.5-3x average of highest years paid out over 5 or so years after mandatory retirement. Any capital is usually on top of that. Big 4 deferred comp was 2-3x that.

Can anyone speak from experience and / or have $ values to compare. Ultimately I would expect somewhat similar, with big 4 providing pension plans

Hi everyone, I’m a student interning at a MM CPA firm in the assurance practice. However, I’d like to transition into TAS at a big 4.

Appreciate the input.

Would you rather: (1) stay in big law (V100), collect your checks, keep billing 1900+ annually, knowing you’ll likely only progress to non-equity partner but stable pipelines for work; or (2) transition to boutique firm with no billable requirements, no minimum salary, on a pure revenue split (half of collections), option for equity partner in 16 months?
