Market share of what? Fortune 500, all public? Trust me we don’t want the bottom 10% possibly 25% of the public’s.

Market share, not revenue.

Disagree with the above. Market share does equal revenue not number of clients

Thanks EY2! It's funny how all PwCers on this thread worry about losing the (fake) prestige without understanding the context. Nuff said

Who the heck cares?? Only snobs at PWC lol….

So you are essentially proving CPAs point.

I saw that article. It was wrong lol. I would say though the very top of the firm focuses on virtue signaling more than revenue. Over the very short term that has been true.
