Base comp seems low. I'm a Sr and I'm at $150k w/MBA. Bonus can get high but not 25%, at least not at my level. Maybe manager

PwC is notorious for paying low and low balling in general. Worst recruitment experience with them ever

Depends on what you currently make too..

It’s at parity to my big 4 salary

I know I posted 3 wks ago about house #4. But a week later I got the inspection report & it was a no go. Lesson learned. But this house I AM buying. I close in about 2 wks. 1st column: The #s w/current tenant till June. We won't renew the lease. Instead we'll rehab the inside; ~$7k, then raise the rent to match the market. Using coulmn #2, total monthly cashflow of all homes is $1,186mo. Initial goal is $20.5K/$1,708 mo. Almost there! If we can rent it for $1.1Kmo (column 3)...AWESOME!
