If I bring in/make an introduction to a client for the firm, will that expedite my career growth/comp as a senior? At a big 4, seeing if it’s worth my time.

No not really. But a partner will be remodeling his home thanks to you.

Not sure about big 4, but at a lot of mid-size firms if you help bring in a client you get a bonus of some sort based on the client fee (i.e. if the client fee is $100k you get $10k). Definitely makes it worth it.

Contd - client would be considered medium size, have connections with some decision makers.

If you are able to remain a or the key contact then I think it certainly helps

If you are in a smaller office and have easier access to leadership it can’t hurt for them to know you have done so. If a larger office I suggest you be part of pursuit team to stress your connections to gain visibility.

You can also speak to a partner you know in your office/vertical. They should be able to give you all of the details if the bonus is available or not. Overall I would say it certainly helps your standing, monetary gain aside.

Possibly you may get a rating bump but I would not expect extra bonus outside of PBB or RAC. Visibility helps as whichever partner is assigned should at a minimum find some RAC for you. If you bring in the client make sure you request a review from the right person otherwise it gets lost in all the noise at year end.
