Going to meet a partner and counselor before the round table. I was told by my seniors that I’m a high performer. Any advice on comp negotiation from staff 2 to senior?

The advice is that it’s not much of a negotiation at that level.

You could be promoted after 2 years at pwc even though the standard is 3. But agreed with EY1, there’s no negotiating at that level.

Was promoted from A2-S1 and got a 15% pay bump. Echoing what others have said; You’re not going to be able to negotiate really at this level. Apparently there are bands and your pay will be raised to be within, but expect it at the lower end since you’re coming from an A2 salary rather than A3 (seems backwards but since it’s % based a higher PY salary gives you a higher S1 salary). That being said after your first year as a senior you’ll get a larger bonus bc the senior bonus pool %s are higher than associates.

Another thing to keep in mind is that PWC promotes people after three years and other firms usually after two, this will have an impact on your raise as well.

The LA office, in tax at least, promote people in 2 years. The only exceptions are ITS which is 3 years (a lot of ITS people in my start class jumped to another big 4 to get promoted in 2)

When I got promoted, the partner asked, I declined to negotiate as a act to show good gesture, deep down there are no negotiation protmoing to senior (“70% automatic”

What would happen if someone was interviewing for a role and accidentally passed gas, but otherwise crushed the interview? Has anyone experienced this before? No clue what I’d do as the interviewer
