Fellow tax fishbowler, have a question of making a decision on which offer to accept. Got offer from both RSM and PwC in their ITS service line--PwC is ITS M&A group while RSM is ITS (generalist group). Supposed that RSM could easily do ITS M&A rotation as well, which one do you guys recommend?(I want to understand what's the skillset gap between the two firms when it comes to the same group and what's the marketability for future jobs in house)?

Thanks so much for your input!

Probably PwC, guessing they’ll have better opportunities and benefits

I am. But from experience standpoint, I won't qualify for the Mgr role at pwc for its ITS general consulting and ITS M&A group as I am pigeon hole in the modeling(TCJA)/compliance/provision work. I believe the only group I will be transitioned into PwC is the QS group unfortunately. As EY experience is not very comprehensive.

Coming from EY? I think it depends on what you’re looking. Probably better WLB at RSM. Better long term salary at PWC.

I am looking to expand and enhance my tax technical and hopefully get more well rounded from the role above. PwC certainly gave me a vibe that you guys work a lot during deal time. But the partner seems fair. Also will be a ITS supervisor at RSM vs experienced senior at PwC. Appreciate your output further

I'm in PwC ITS and I've never heard of an ITS M&A group. ITS and M&A are two separate groups. I do a lot of ITS consulting, which means working closely with M&A, but we are def separate groups

Would you mind sharing comp details

If you want to do ITAX - M&A at RSM, I’m pretty sure you just need to ask for that and it will be available. We also have a group doing multi-national deals mostly with PE funded deals. PWC will have you probably dealing with less clients and fewer deals because they generally have bigger clients and bigger deals but RSM has just as complex of deals and you will possibly expand your tax technical skills more by the extra clients and deals generally at RSM as opposed to PWC. Both strong firms of course but there’s one take to consider

So it's more like manager and SM level in that regard? Got it

F

Thanks
