I’ve heard The Siegfried Group pays a lot better than the Big 4 but the numbers don’t seem to be making sense to me. A recruiter mentioned to me 105-115k USD, but when I look at PwC US’s salary for a Tier 2 city, it’s 163k USD? Even Tier 3 is higher than the quote. I am from Canada so still trying to understand the US job market. 4 YOE, currently Manager in Canada in PwC Deals

You’re looking at deals advisory for PwC. It’s comparing apples to oranges. You would need to compare to audit salary for 4 YOE.

Agreed. Also a lot of Siegfried comp comes through incentives, so while the base salaries might be comparable, I would be willing to bet you'd make a lot more at TSG through incentive pay (like overtime/production bonus)

Received a senior associate offer for 80k base salary, but guaranty bonus of 24k for first two years. I have 2 years big4 audit experience.

Recently received an offer from TSG was wondering if anyone would have any insight if it was a good offer or if I should try to counter

Does TSG have a sign on Bonus? If so how much is it usually after taxes ?

Anyone else frustrated by the call today? It’s peak month end close time and I felt like it was a bad time for them to schedule a two hour call where the first hour nothing was accomplished.


Really kind of shocking that management would bring in three pretty conservative speakers. I mean, we know where Rob and they stand, but I thought MYJourney was about building us up as leaders and finding what makes us happy and succeed, not just throwing politics right in our face. Just kind of makes me think the whole MYJourney program is a joke now.


Does anyone know what the comp range is for a manager? Considering applying or talking to a recruiter.


When I interviewed they told me I was not required to recruit but now I’m required to upload 50 “My Relationships” every certain amount of months where other recruiters can technically go after my contacts and recruit them and also am expected to invite potential networking to events and through the beaker model. Is this required? I feel forced and I’ve only been here for less than a month and I’m not loving this approach.


Anyone up for a call? Interested in learning more about The Siegfried Group.

How strict is the 30-day notice policy? Would they complain if a 3-week notice was given?

Question for TSG folks - I'm considering applying to TSG. Do I have to use a recruiter (external or internal) or can I apply on my own? I think I can have more bargaining power if I apply on my own without having the recruiter in the middle since TSG would have to pay them too, right?
