Please explain to me why RSM is the only firm that doesn't give a $5000 bonus for passing the CPA exam? Even smaller firms offer it.

No they get a 3000 for passing with in a period of time. I worked at a smaller firm they gave nothing


RSM is the only firm I've seen that reimburses you for college classes up to 5k/year. That's another side of the coin.


Wait you get no bonus at all?

how much do they pay for you to study and pass to start with?

and all that crap application and membership fees

I have NEVER received a bonus nor a significant raise. for passing my CPA exams! Think it's wrong to incentivize people to get their license.

We get 3k and reimburse our fees. I know it's only a 2k difference but first years aren't eligible for bonus pool either. And the top tier 2 firms also give 5k so it's driving folks away from RSM. Also what's wrong with incentivizing people to get their license? It's good for the firm and they don't want to have to retrain someone else if you can't pass and they have to coach you out because they can't promote you.

Starting now, first years are eligible for bonuses

Not this year tho? Isn't it next year?

We had 3 and just recently as of April 1st had it raised to 5

Hi! Wanted to get thoughts from those who have exited to a startup from MBB/T2. Have an offer from a series C start up — would take ~$20k base cut but with bonus (annually) would make about 25k more TC plus RSUs. Much better WLB and great people. Is the base cut normal? Thoughts?

How do you begin a compensation conversation with your partner? Do you discuss it during your annual compensation discussion? If so what is a good way to ask for a raise?
