The main thing that keeps me in the partnership is that I truly enjoy my job. Not every single aspect, not every single day, but almost. I have tremendous freedom to work on things that interest me. I help people solve hard problems and transform their organizations. It's the whole campus recruiting pitch come true. All of this becomes more and more true the more senior you get. So it's become more rewarding over time.

Makes me want to leave? Well not that much per the above, but the travel does become annoying at times. I don't have kids, so it will be an adventure when my wife and I do have them to see how well I'm able to adapt.

I’m thinking about applying at WTW for a Senior Account Manager role in the Chicago office. How do referrals work at WTW? Also, I have 4 years of experience in group captive insurance programs as well as most ancillary lines on the broker side. Does anyone else have group captive experience and could provide some advice on best companies to move to where I can use that expertise? I want to move to a larger company since I’m at a small place with not much room for growth currently.

I've heard a couple of things about how the partner pension amount @ PwC is determined, both similar in approach.

Both calculations I have heard of result in an annuity paid until death, at which point a surviving spouse (if any) receives the annuity.

The first calculation I have heard is that you get 80% of your highest earning year as a partner (e.g. If your best year was $1M, you'd get $800k as an annuity).

The second calculation I have heard is that they look at your three highest earning years as a partner, and take the second highest and you get 100% of that. (e.g if your three highest earning years were $1M, $800k, and $1.2M, you'd receive $1M as an annuity).

Is ANY of this true, or just all rumor? Any PwC partners that can chime in and explain the pension plan fact for fact? Perhaps with sample numbers?
