If I had to guess, it's something like $170k-$220k base. Can confirm 20% bonus target (if you haven't been through an AIP cycle yet, don't get your hopes up about actually getting bonuses fully funded). I believe that stock awards are part of the equation for Ps, though it may just be ESPP (this is based on what recruiting told me in my initial negotiations 3 years ago). Some may be on a sales comp plan. Depending on where you sit and what type of P you are, TC is likely low-2s to low-3s. If you get promoted up to the role, it's going to be on the lower end than if you're an external hire. Point of reference - my base went up by around $9k, from $128 to $137, with my promo to EM. 15% bonus target instead of 10% is nice, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to need a top rating to even sniff the $20k I'm targeting. External hires into the EM role in my group basically all started at $150k; one started at $180k since she had 25yoe in industry.


I was hired into tech solutions; my group recently moved to commercial solutions


Any insights into the comp for a P in EU commercial tech solutions?


In core consulting, my guess is TC of $200K+

What were you expecting? Also for what it’s worth that’s just a WAG. I don’t work there.

Hi folks, I was on H1B visa and moved out of US 2 years back. I should have 3 years left on my H1B visa. I am planning to go back to the US now. Do I need to apply for H1B lottery? Or can I reuse my previous H1B. FYI - I work for a different employer now.


I was just speaking with a couple of coworkers who told me they see doctors who don’t take insurance. Why would anyone do that? Is this just a flex?

Anyone know what the promotion bonus is when you make manager in EY Tax? Not talking PBB, just bonus purely related to promotion. Thanks.


Loving how this makes the promotion fast track much more intellegible 😂

just joined the firm and needed to roll over my 401k. I got a check from the old brokerage made out to the new brokerage for the value of my 401k. Still haven’t sent it in to PwC. Should I hold off

What monitor would you recommend for WFH situation assuming a IB/fund role? Know there is disagreement whether one wider monitor is better than dual smaller ones so would love to hear both perspectives.

Anyone had to relocate mid-lease when taking a job at a new firm? Did the new firm offer you anything in compensation?


I had an observation with the union head at our district. Honestly, he was not a very good teacher at all. I am afraid to score him accuratelty though.


Do business development efforts (proposals) belong on a resume? Client info scrubbed of course.


Advice needed: I’ve been in a long distance relationship for a while. Things are generally going well but when it comes to traveling to see each other I’m always the one making more of the effort to go to him. I understand his job isn’t as flexible but even when it was during Covid he had an excuse and I would be the one going to see him and spending weeks leaving behind my day to day to spend time with him. Am I wrong for wanting more effort and flexibility on his end?


What's the best way to get backing into consulting after getting laid off due to downsizing?

Could anybody share lessons learned from returning from military leave? I’m finding it more difficult to get staffed on that first project back than I anticipated.


Anyone else quitting after their bonus? What do you plan on doing with the time?
