I was looking to leave a boutique firm with 3 years of experience in audit and BDO offered me (for an experienced audit senior position) $7k less than I made at the smaller firm, excluding the bonus which at the other firm was substantial. I was so bummed I waisted my time on the whole interview process.

I’m sorry to hear that! That was truly a waste of valuable time. They wouldn’t budge or negotiate I assume?

BDO pay S1’s in LA 85k.
