It is a big 4 firm, but I went external. Recruited with multiple big 4 and the salary at all of them was very similar.

How has traveling been in the past ?

1.5 years in audit out of undergrad. 100k flat HCOL NYC as a senior, switched earlier this year.

I do not, passed all the exams so I could apply FDD right after busy. Need a couple more online classes then I’ll get it

NYC - M2 149k 24k bonus 6 YOE

That's really good! I have 5 years of FDD experience and 1 year Strategic FP&A but was thinking about going back into TAS given the insane salaries. I'd go in at Manager 2 or possibly senior manager HCOL. Should I ask for 170 base? Or is that too high?

Big4 in South East S1 82k base (idk bonus) 2.5 YOE of audit - less than 1 year of FDD WLB: better than audit

Chicago S1 - $90K base, 12% target bonus for next year. I came in recently after 2 busy seasons in audit. WLB is volatile as expected. Can work until midnight some days and other days might be done by noon. No weekends so far except for occasional email to India team.

Hi, I have been in the business where I am for over 15 years. Even after I became a MD, there’s always few who undermines my skill sets and knowledge. Similar to the other posts I’m tired of this (whack a mole game, squid game) and I still have 3 years prior to vest my pension. I’m debating losing my sanity vs. losing good pension. To be honest unless I can move laterally to another role, I’m bored with what I’m doing right now.
