I am seeing a lot of people make a transition from B4 to FAANG, and interestingly MDs at B4 are coming at L7/E7 levels... so it means B4 MDs make less than L7/E7. For some reason I always thought B4 MDs earn close to a Million dollars.. but looks like I am wrong. I always thought MDs are like CEO!! What am I missing?

Hey fishes! Need some guidance here, currently working at a top 10 firm, I like the IT audit work, I enjoy my team, but I’m feeling like this will be my last busy season here as I want to try some place different + get better pay. My main question is… should I go for a big 4 for 1-2 years to gain that experience in my resume and then jump to industry or should I jump to industry directly? TIA

I got call from HR of one of Big 4 firm. She had such an irritating tone for a HR. When I told my expected CTC, she went on to persuade me to quote lower number since they don't have budget. I even came down to a point since I wanted to get Big 4 Opportunity. She kept on saying a number which was not even 15% of my current package. Finally, she said she's not going to process the profile with an almighty attitude. Such an arrogant tone from Big 4 HR. I wonder this MNCs have idiots as HRs
