My rule of thumb is ideally >20% (the higher the better), though there are exceptions if you're about to price yourself out of the market or there are other benefits to working at the new firm (e.g. employee benefits are better, the work is not fulfilling, better client alignment, etc). I wouldn't accept a pay cut, though.

uplifting

If 20%, consider it. If 30%, feel good about it. If 40%, be excited, your firm won’t likely match it. Good luck!

Do I contact my coach and let him know that I would like to stay but received different offers and I want to know if Deloitte can match them?

Hi I am having some trouble on choosing between Deloitte and PwC for a 2022 winter internship. Some pros for Deloitte include being the largest firm, and the promotion to senior being 2 years opposed to 3 at PwC. Additionally, Deloitte offers a pension and has Deloitte university. The pros of PwC include a gym in the office and a younger work force. They also give me much less of a “corporate” feel and seem to offer more flexibility. I’m wondering if anyone could give me any advice on deciding?
