MD at big 4 firm contemplating partner opportunity at what I’d say is top 20 firm in NYC. I get the impression comp can vary VERY significantly based on book etc but not had specifics yet. Any idea what comp ranges would be. Manhattan office.

Would be helpful to understand service line as units could vary between them. Also, how many years of experience as an MD? Good luck!

Consider retirement plan payouts. That can be a deal breaker for long term earnings. Most smaller firms don’t come close to P or MD plans I’m big 4

Neither my husband nor I are good with change and when my husband and I went for the ultrasound he nervously asked "she's too sick to eat anything other than her vitamins and water, is it ok for her and the baby to go without?" Our doctor just smiled and replied "don't worry, baby takes" I don't know why but that was so funny to us. It kind of became our mantra as we navigate and move our life around that "baby takes," its made it feel more Us vs Change rather than Me vs Him. Thought I'd share

Thinking of leaving a firm I’ve dedicated my life to as a result. It’s a sad realization.

Hi everyone. Hope everyone is enjoying their audit/tax season. I’m going into my 4th year as an audit partner. Let’s say the firm is in the top 5-10 range. Comp is $365k (draw plus distributions). Haven’t had comp discussions this year, but historically, it’s been 50-60k increases YOY. I’m sure this is under Big 4 salary levels, but for any National accounting firm partners, wanted to get thoughts. Thanks!

I’m considering joining EY in London. Currently at a boutique consultancy. I joined Fishbowl to try to get a sense ‘from the inside’ of the Big4 as I don’t have close contacts I can ask. I’ve seen a lot of griping in the other channels from more junior staff about comparatively low pay, EY not keeping up, clunky tech, etc. Is that just normal / expected grumbling? Would be really interested in the Partner perspective on this. Feel free to DM if more appropriate. Thanks!
