No haha. More like 65-70 if LCOL

Agree 65-70 BDO is cheap. May be able to negotiate for more with covid and their demand.

Again, depends on their experience level and when they came in. I’m higher than almost every director in my old PwC group HCOL. Legacy vs legacy - PwC likely makes more. BDO pays more than PwC for experienced hires.

80K - 90K

No way, I got $76k as S1 and $85k as S2 in HCOL at BDO, just this year. EY is paying me much more now though lol

72 if I’m embellishing

70-80
