Curious to know, why are salaries at MBB, OW and boutiques in Canada close to the salaries in the US, while there's a gap wider than the Atlantic at the Big 4. Is the national model the culprit?

McK Implementation 🐠 - noticed that some job descriptions specify industry. Would an experienced hire come in already specialized, as opposed to a standard generalist track? What backgrounds are these roles typically looking for (industry, big 4, etc.)?
I have gathered that aside from MBB, ACN pays their employees the most and pretty significantly more than big 4. Jumping 🚢 A$AP.

PWC manager vs other big 4 managers, is it one level lower as PWC has to go through SM & director before being a partner?
Got an offer from another big 4 for more money. Should I go to my PML and talk about it ? How is that perceived ?
EY is probably the most racist among all the big 4's. Personal experience. There marketing is nothing but a big sham. A firm run by goons!

Anyone here jumped from ACN/Big 4 to MBB? How have things improved/worsened? I'm burnt out by both hours and type of work but I'm told the work life bal at MBB is worse while work is more interesting.

When leaving PwC to join another big 4 accounting firm, do you give 2 weeks notice? I heard they tell you to leave immediately since it’s a competitor.
Do you ever feel like you’ve become an alcoholic as a result of being a consultant. I’m with EY but I’m pretty sure this is prevalent across big 4.
I’m still amazed when I see consultants at the same firm since graduating undergrad (primarily B4) and have never left to seek other opps at other consulting firms. Is the cushion that comfy?
Do you think the current situation would affect pending offers? Received a verbal offer from another B4 but concerned the contract will be delayed due to what’s going on around the world/markets.
How old were you when you joined consulting? Want to know how old one can be and still get an offer.

Currently work in media at an agency. Is it better to try to get lower level brand side job first, or just get an MBA and then go after brand side jobs?
Currently do all my non-retirement investing through Wealthfront and I can see that their 5 year return for a portfolio with a risk score of 7/10 is only 5.45% (net of fees). Isn't that super low? The 5 year return on a fund like VTI is 10%. VOO is even higher. I know WF helps manage downside better with cash and bonds, but I can't help but feel like I'm leaving a lot of money on the table by not just buying funds through Charles Schwab or similar.
