I previously worked at KPMG and PwC. I'm intrigued that PwC gives me the option to rollover or withdraw my pension plan while KPMG does not.

It all has to do with what type of plan it is I believe. Certain plans can be referred to as a pension plan but aren't actually set up as one, more akin to a deferred compensation plan.

Hello Fishes,

I have 2 offers in hand currently -
1. CGI - 25LPA +1L JB
2. Neev systems - 23LPA (5%VP)

Neev systems is ready to negotiate it with CGI. And both companies have their own benefits.

Neev's hike is good compared to CGI(almost double) & CGI have some additional perks like cab facility, Creche allowance, mobile, internet bills reimbursements and additional 5% shares.

Both might have similar WLB (12-9pm).

My DOJ is tomorrow, unable to decide between them. Pls help me!!

How do the pension schemes for partners/principals compare across the B4? At Deloitte, until a few years ago, it was 1% of high five per year up to 25 years. Now, I believe the partners have to contribute 50% of the 1% per year, so the benefit is more like .5% per year.

I have a friend in the Federal government that just got an offer for a VP position at a private firm with a guranteed 30% raise immediately, with a path to promote in one year to senior VP with an extra raise of 20%. So net 50%+ more than they are making now. However, they have 14 years of fed service, and are 6 years away from pension. How do they calculate how much they would need to make from this new job to give up the 6 years till pension?
