Big4 look at Big4 since there is literally no other group that mirrors them. MBB’s business model is very different and works more closely to big law. Banking? Completely different type of work. Boutique firms? They are too small to compare to Big4, they are market followers not setters.

M1 - sure, but the ownership, employment and delivery models are very different. Bug4 are partnerships and salaries to employees are dollars out of partners pockets, not unknown shareholders.

I don’t think GS is part of the benchmark for PWC

Is an MBA worth it? I’m in track for an IT Audit Manager position in the next couple years, have Big 4 experience, and am satisfied with the idea of staying in audit for the foreseeable future (but open to other risk relate roles). Is an MBA going to do anything for me as I look to move up in the audit world in the future? Or should I just focus on doing quality work and not waste my time with an MBA?
