Is the promotional structure in Big 4 TAS/FDD similar to how it is in Big 4 Audit? E.g. 2 yrs at associate, 2-3 yrs at senior, etc?
Or is it more merit based where you’re promoted when ready, e.g. 1-1.5 yrs at associate, 1.5-2 yrs at senior, etc?
If the latter, what’s the fastest you’ve seen someone get promoted and at which levels? Thanks

It’s the same and most firms are moving away from agile promotions so don’t expect to move up any faster, boutiques and middle market like A&M or houlihan on the other hand promote more on merit

Really? Guess I shouldn’t have spoken in absolutes. I just haven’t seen it myself with some recent hires

I’m a designer in the planning/landscape architecture dept. of a CE firm. Extremely frustrated that after 4+ years and multiple asks, I’m not getting the in-field construction experience I’ve asked for. I know that my designs could be better if I could see how things are actually built but I get slapped in the face with “I need you in the office designing/drafting” or “there’s no budget to have you go out” and then sends an intern to inspect instead. I’m 5 yrs out of college. Any advice?

I have what I'm sure will be a stupid question - what are the prep and review budgets like in big 4 tax? Especially on smaller to medium sized returns (unless those don't exist).
