Partners & Principals,
If you have offers from couple of big-4 (Deloitte, PWC, EY and KPMG) & also mid tier such as RSM /Grant Thornton etc. What is your advice? It appears the starting salary/draw is a bit varied even with in the big-4 but it is my understanding overtime (3-5 years), most of them average out dont know about mid tear. is midtier better as they less overhead and more marketshare to grow? or even within big-4 is there one firm much better than the other comp & retirement wise
Can anyone describe the salaries from first year staff to manager for audit in a top ten firm?(excluding big 4)
Long term which do you all see as more lucrative consulting for big 4 (assume you ultimately would make partner) or move to tech industry? We can debate WLB separately but this is purely money
Need some guidance. Here is my situation:
1. Just transferred to big 4 FDD as snr from big4 audit (~a month ago, with no deal yet under my belt)
2. Studying for fmva certification
3. 1+ year plan is to take the GMAT & apply to ivy league mba program. Planning to break into IB and then PE later.
4. Got approach recently by a recruiter from Houlihan Lokey (HL) for an associate position in the Midwest. Comp range 120k -130k. I make about 100k now.
- Is the move going to be worth it? what'd you do
Is working for a Big 4 prestigious? Yes or no.

Hi, I am first year associate working in B4 Audit.
I have been working almost a year. I am considering moving to a different career (Deal Advisory or related roles) but not sure I should move this year or next year when I get promoted to a senior.
I am not thinking about internal transfer because it seems harder than the internal transfer in my case.
