Is there generally a salary premium for people in M&A Tax compared to Core Tax, and is it substantial (10-20%+) at the Senior level or not until you get to manager and above?

I can’t speak for pwc, but at EY I think it’s like 30-40k at the associate level. This is also for JDs. Also, EY has the highest pay for m and a tax out of all the firms so not exactly comparing apples to apples. At pwc I’ve heard there isn’t much difference until you get to manager though (as in, I have friends who work there, not rumors).

It’s approx a 20% bump at associate level anyway. Have heard first hand from colleagues who have made the leap from core to specialty (no additional degrees, just undergrad).

Yes, M&A and ITS have higher pay due to more consulting work. Also most folks in the team would be JD/LLM.

like

What about tp ?

Yes, but you'd have to had a JD+LLM or a MST+CPA (in progress or have).

Yes. When I worked there I switched from regular tax to M&A and instantly went from 65k to 105k as 2nd year associate. Then got promoted to senior that same year and went to 129k.

The work I do now is 100% different than my old job. I work mostly on large publicly traded companies on business analytics and business strategy. Much more stressful than my days at PwC but learning a lot more.

Straight out of school (at least out of an LLM program) at EY is 115k (I believe NYC might be higher). You start as a staff 2 so you get promoted to senior after a year. This was what a JD/LLM grad would expect to make. Although this was a few years ago so it may have changed a little.

like

EY generally goes up 5k year. I have a friend who started 2016 with just a JD who started at 110k

I can only speak to associate through manager levels but it is pretty substantial, something like 30-40%

Serious question. I constantly see income reports published that indicate only ~5% of the US population make over $250k, ~1% over $500k, etc. Is this actual W2 reported income? Do corporations have ways to compensate individuals so that their total comp does NOT show on their W2 (RSUs, Deferred Compensation, etc.)? Reason I ask is because I see great wealth all around me. I feel like these reports do not always tell the whole story in terms of TC & investment income.

I’d still likely do about 50 percent ins defense but I really like the partners I work for, and I handle own cases/take depos, and get autonomy. Am I right to stay?
