How much do audit partners at big 4 firms make? What about 2nd tier firms?

I believe a partners starting salary is something like 350-450k and then anything extra is profit sharing. I'm sure that there are partners making 1-2million a year who are not in some high ranking role. The average pay is probably 500-600k. That is big4 so lower the numbers from there.

I am 23 YO, just graduated undergrad from a non-target school, and am currently working in tech consulting for a B4 firm. My long term goal is to land a technology operations job with a large PE fund. What steps should I be taking now to make this goal more feasible? What types of exposure should I be looking to gain? Also, I wouldn’t mind going back to b school if that’s what it will take to get in the door. Thanks in advance!

Just finished my first year in Big 4 Tech Consulting. Got highest possible marks and am starting to get frustrated by lackluster learning opportunities (still have not met a soul that I work with in person) and the allure of consulting is completely dead for me at this point. I know the job market at Tech companies is hot right now… but I feel I may be a bit too early to jump ship. Should I wait until the first big promotion / increase for leverage, or is Big Tech actually hiring 1 YoE Analysts?

Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
