Our pay increases are fastest because we have direct out of undergrad -> EM...you could make partner before 30 if you wanted. Our perks are worse than BCGs though (1st class flights for them oh any flight >1 hr, our is >3.5 hrs). Food wise we get $100 a day while I’ve heard there is no limit really for them

I know you didn’t ask but capgemini would be last

likefunny

Cap1, what business unit are you in? Most I know still get bonuses, but A/B bands don’t get bonuses. I agree that our pay and raises can’t compete with the others mentioned though.

If you include benefits the big firms will lag. They tend to be more cash comp focused. Some people also see work life as a benefit. So it may be worth more to work 50 hours a week and earn a salary of $100K than to work 70 hours and earn $115K.

I think the difference in hrs sounds close, but the pay gap is much greater than 15%.

Hey what about us 🖐?

We may not be major in size, but we are in pay.

I would recommend steering away from Grant Thornton, pay is below market value and culture has changed significantly, it's like you have to work like the big 4 without the added benefits.

Pay varies greatly across different practices. My base is sub 100k for the Associate title with a PhD degree in a major NA office. Maybe because of my 0 year of exp though.

Accenture offers the lowest pay. The other companies pay at least 20% more.

ES has a similar chart to NQ. ES didn't even make it to the 38% retracement. The dip in will provide fuel to the short covering. So, when we get back up to that 38% level, we will blow through it and send us to the 50-61.8% HWB short. Before we get there, we have to deal with an intermediate HWB short that we closed right up against. However, we were at the end of a short-term long at the close. So, a retrace into that short-term HWB long at 3003.75 is a buy. Bullish above 2996. Sell 3110-3140.
