EY 1 no I’m in tax. Though the OP is audit themselves I didn’t see the post restricted to audit (though I can now see if that is what they were after...). I was an experienced hire in SF as Manager. I put Mgr/Snr Mgr because back then they didn’t do SM in tax (they’ve reinstated it now). I was about to be promoted to Director when I left so I was effectively like an SM.

To update including bonuses:

1: 57k + $500 bonus lol
2: 63k / 80k + $1k bonus
3: 90k + 10.5k bonus + equity
4: 102k + 10.5k expected + equity refresh expected

Very motivating to hear from others. Gotta just stick with stuff and see it through. Dream isn’t to be an accountant etc but 20 years of mildly enjoying what I do doesn’t seem so bad anymore lol. Kinda hated my decision for this career a year and half into audit
