KPMG is paying the most, Deloitte and apparently EY are paying the least, like below current salary least.

I had offers from all 4. KPMG and Deloitte was the lowest. EY and PwC were the highest (by 20k for base) all 4 offered 15-20k for sign on bonus. I was able to choose where I wanted to go though because the one I preferred wasn’t the highest but they matched the highest offer.

What city & LOS?

Recognize that none of this is across the board. Who is paying most differs by city, by practice, and yeah by whether they're bringing in talent from outside

That can’t be right. KPMG paying the most?!

Kpmg has to pay the most. Pretty sure they ha e highest starting salaries too. They gotta do something to attract talent. Makes sense.
