Honestly, all big 4 are desperate for experienced associates or seniors. I wouldn’t accept less than 70k. Also, a different big 4 would probably give you the senior title and pay you closer to 85k. Having your cpa plus the senior title already should result in the senior title. Unless you are going into a mew area

I moved from a new firm. I was an experienced staff before. I dont think i will be promoted this year

Why not a senior?

I would push for senior!

Core or FSO?

60 - 70? Just guessing

Following, tax senior first year in Boston, passed CPA

I think around 63k, I was in EY FSO Dallas as experienced staff before.

I’m surprised they are bringing you in DSG when you have that much experience. What type of experience do you have? As far as salary, hard to say. Things are all out of whack right now.

I guess because I come from a small cpa firm, the size of my clients is very small (compared to the clients that big four have) and the type of software I have used is totally different (but I don't think it would be an issue). So I guess they want me to adapt to all the new things before they put me as a senior.

I've seen folks around here ask for referrals to companies. I'm looking for a referral to KPMG's Data & Analytics practice at an equivalent level to EY manager (currently S3 here on track for promotion this upcoming year). How does that process usually work on this app? I'm open to other consulting firms as well but already have referrals for most of my targets. I specialize in AI & ML and my differentiator is being able to effectively translate between executives and data scientists.
