Why are you leaving PwC? If work life balance is what you’re looking for, then the PCAOB sounds like a solid gig. Also, at the company with growth potential, are the a well run company?

Senior manager at my current job came from PCAOB - he said it was a great job but not if you have kids, just because of the travel requirements.

I wouldn’t count on bonus, they always make it sound like it’ll be a sure thing but then bonus time rolls around and you “haven’t been around long enough” or some b/s

And benefits (e.g. 401k, vacations). Pcaob = 40 hours week, director of accounting = more time required but with a growth path within the company. How to decide?

Hi fishes - I’m with an MBB as a 2y Partner looking to move to B4, for a bunch of reasons. In active conversations with two of them. While compensation levels seem similar for now, the other posts on this bowl suggest we end up making more at B4 than MBB. (Referring to the 1.5M number of a y4 partner at b4). What is the real trajectory that people here have seen at B4? And how much of that is bonus - base - other components?

First year M&A associate. I never came into big law wanting /expecting to gun or make partner, and first year pretty much confirmed that. I'm more than happy to leave for in house in 4-6 years and live a much more chill life. Knowing this, what is the best way to max out the $'s? I'm thinking of considering auto-lateral at year 2/3 and again at 4/5 just for the signing bonus (I know things may change and maybe I wouldn't do it if I loved my firm or got an in house job), but is this viable?

I get interrupted a lot at work now that we are virtual. I don't feel like this happens to everyone else in my team as much, meaning folks tend to let them talk longer. So I've reduced my contribution and talk less. But then others make the same point I'm thinking and would normally have said. So now I just look like a silent non-contributor or someone who gets interrupted a lot. Office/team culture is generally good, respectful and peaceful. How do I change this? What can I do differently?
